    PayPal. But you have to know what payment methods the seller accepts. You really should not transfer money from your bank account into a sellers bank account. Bad idea.

    PayPal is the simplest, fastest and most secure way to pay for anything on ebay.

    You can use PayPal, which is very common. When bidding, look for the payment methods, that the seller accepts, at the bottom of the item description.

    Open yourself a PayPal account. Hook up your bank account and your credit card as a back up and you can instantly transfer money through PayPal without going to the bank.. Got to the PapPal website from ebay and just open a new account. It's really quick and simple.

    It all depends on the seller.

    Most sellers accept paypal, you just go to paypal.com create an account with them, link it to your credit card or bank account and you are all set.

    Some sellers accept a personal check or money order, in this case you have to mail it to them.

    If you buying whatever you are buying from a large company that sells on ebay you might even be able to call in a provide them with a credit card # over the phone.

    You must generally know about and make arrangements for payment beforehand, because if your bid wins you have bought it.

    set up a paypal account. it's safe and reliable and that way the seller won't get your acct info.
