Hi

I want buy some code using PayPal. I tried to add funds to my PayPal account. But the only form I could see was a transfer from an American bank account. Does anyone know how to add funds to your PayPal account from New Zealand.


Cheers Possum..

Have you got a credit card saved on paypal? I normally click the send money option and paypal first uploads funds from my credit card and then pays it to the reciepient. Costs me $1 from ASB bank as a offshore transaction and gets converted to the best possible exchange rate as I normally use Euro (prefered) otherwise U.S Dollars....




Do whatever you want to do man.

I use PayPal all the time as well, such as buying stuff of ebay.
Paypal will work with any or most credit card, it works fine with my ANZ Visa.
What do you mean add fund? when you purchased something by using your PayPal, it should ask you to log it to your PayPal account, then it will ask you whether you want to pay, if you click Pay the fund will automaticly take off from your credit card, that you have register with PayPal.

You can use your Paypal account to store money. You can receive money from others or charge the account from a bank. Currently only banks in the U.S. and Canada (IIRC) can be used to charge an account.

As usual, if you pay something it will first use the money in your account, then will charge your credit card for any required balance.

Hi

Yes.. I ended up using PayPal with my credit card... It works that way no prob.. But my credit card will have a fee charged each time I use it.

It would be good to add funds just once and use it for many different payments. But Im happy.. I bought my code. Yes.. I actaully paid for code.. All is well

thx everyone..

Hi

The code was for FlashChat

 www.tufat.com/s_flash_chat_chatroom.htm

My Site needed a chat and it was only $5.oo Thats why I didnt want to use the credit card.

The install was perfect and it intergrated with phpBB as well. So when my users  ( when the come.. lol ) need only sign in once for either chat or phpBB bulletin board..
