How do I make purchases using PayPal on eBay?

Here's how to make a payment for an eBay item you have won or purchased using eBay's checkout:

  1. Log in to your eBay account.
  2. Click My eBay.
  3. Click Purchase history under Buy.
  4. Click Pay now for the listing you wish to pay for.
  5. Click Continue.
  6. On the Review your purchase page, review the details of your purchase and click Continue to confirm it.
  7. Log in to your PayPal account when prompted and click More funding options if you want to select a different funding option.
  8. Click Confirm your payment to complete your purchase.
  9. You will receive an email receipt shortly after confirming your purchase.

Note: If you do not have an eBay account, you can purchase a Buy it now item without signing up. However, you must use PayPal to fund your purchase. Click the Buy it now button on the item you wish to purchase and complete the payment.
