How do I make purchases using PayPal on eBay?

Some of you guys might want to buy cheap and used car parts.  Apart from gumtree I love in particular buying and occasionally selling using eBay. I’ve never sold a vehicle on eBay though, would be interested to hear from some readers that may have used eBay car sales to sell their vehicle or buy a vehicle. One of the reasons I use eBay to buy bits and pieces (yes, even small covers for cell phones and items around five bucks) is the fact that eBay integrates with PayPal so I can take advantage of not having to pass over my Visa debit card details and have some degree of satisfaction in terms of refunds (via Paypal).

We have mentioned using eBay for buying parts online sellers including for spare parts secondhand for  Volvo vehicles as well as Mercedes-Benz parts.  There are even specialised spare parts “eBay stores” for specific makes of vehicles set up selling only parts as you will find reading the two links i placed above. You will find after going through the motions of buying on eBay once that it’s a cinch as the whole process is quite easy and you will get the product in the mail in a few days (depends on which postal or courier option that you selected at the time of purchase).

The following was taken directly from eBay instructions itself.  Generally, everything about buying on eBay is straightforward even to the first time, at the time, such as me.
