Can I make a one-off payment with a debit card using Paypal, for something on eBay? (UK)?
I mean I want to use someone else's debit card instead of the one I usually use with my account, would I have to go through the whole setting up an account and verifying it process to use theirs just once?

Hi - yes - here's a simple way to do it.
Chose to pay by PayPal, but as you go through the process, look for the text that says something like "Don't have a PayPal account - click here to pay by card" and click the button next to it. Basically this allows a non-PayPal user to pay using PayPal WITHOUT requiring them to set up a PayPal account.
So, if you follow these steps, you can use your friend's card for this one purchase.
HOWEVER! (there is always a 'but'!). If your friend happens to have a PayPal account of their own and that card is registered with their PayPal account, PayPal will not let you use it.
Does that help?Source(s): Personal experience

Yeah, unfortunately you have to go through
the process again. Unless, this person let's
you add their card to your account as a method

you would need to add the card to your paypal, otherwise it will come from the account you have registered
