yes. Paypal always asks you some type of account confirmation question. I take it you dont have a paypal debit card, if you did, you could just type in the account number off of that and be all set.

If you are still scared, you can just pm me your CC #, sid code, and billing zip code and I will handle the process for you.

(Please dont do that...I am kidding)

EDIT: OOPS...ebay is asking you for this info???? Why would ebay even have your CC# on file?

I think it's ebay's way of decreasing the amount of bogus sellers and or buyers. Ebay would quickly go to hell if a bunch of people could just make up new accounts every 5 minutes and have those accounts be virtually anonymous. There'd be a lot more fraud on ebay if that were permitted.
