    I've been wanting to create an eBay account for a while now but I'm not sure that its safe to link my paypal to the eBay account because I have a vba linked to my paypal as well as a prepaid debit card. I was planning on using the account for buying only. Also I don't remember the birthday I put on my paypal account (no way to see bday on profile) so will eBay get suspicious when my eBay account has a different dob? Your thoughts/experiences?

    I found a way around the date of birth problem. Just buy something on ebay as a guest using paypal, and after you successfully complete the payment, ebay should lead you to a confirmation page where you can create an account if you want. They wont ask you for your DOB there because they just sync the info from paypal. :D

    ebay rarely matches the DOB on your PayPal with the DOB on your new ebay account, so i would say proceed with confidence.
