    It actually depends on the seller you're buying from. I have sold a few items on eBay. When a seller lists and item to sell, eBay asks for payment methods that the seller accepts. Most common payment method is Paypal. If the seller chooses to accept credit card, the seller must be able to accept credit card. I don't know how that works. I only accept Paypal. Usually people that sells small amount of items don't accept credit cards and the people that sells a lot of stuff do accept credit cards.

    Anyways, on the listing, you can check if the seller accepts credit card or not. Paypal is always accepted. You can also sign up for Bill Me Later through Paypal, which works similar to a credit card.

    Ebay Pay With Credit Card

    The $1 charge you keep seeing is just an authorization, like when you use a card at a gas station they put through the authorization for verification purposes and then it goes away, these should also. The purpose of this authorization is to verify if the address, name and other info matches the card. Because this is a gift card there is not info so of course it wont match and that is why they will not put the charge through.

    If the seller takes credit cards you can. Otherwise you have to use Paypal and link that to your credit card.
