If you have the money already sitting in your PP account ?

The reason I ask this is I've noticed a number of websites that claim to take PP, ask for a credit card when paying, this get's a bit confusing and let me explain.

Not all countries who have what is called a "Debit card" act as a credit card at the same time, some are simply bank cards in other countries which do NOT act as an extension of CC.

Example I have: $100 sitting in pp, if I go through the checkout process on GW's website will I be able to pay that way or will they ask me for a CC to back up the payment, the reason I ask is I have no CC but am able to use PP by transferring funds from my bank account into PP itself.

Thanks for the help if anyone knows

Hi, yes you can pay by balance, in the UK at least.

I had problems with trying to pay with paypal once and it turned into a big fiasco.

I live in Canada and they tried to process my paypal purchase through paypal UK and it failed.

No one contacted me to tell me they cancelled my order and I find while GWs phone guys are really nice and helpful when 'you' call them, they do nothing in return for customers when they mess up and the customer should be notified.

Pop was this with money already in there or was it with a CC linked to PP ?

I'm canada also and now im a bit worried about this. I've used PP for years on ebay but this is a little dif and some other stores who usually force you to enter some kind of CC info when doing the whole PP payment method.

That's why I'm trying to get a solid answer on it and not have to deal with any headaches, which is what PP usually is.

As a side note, is anyone aware of GW stores ordering specialist games stuff if you go in and say hi I want x items from SG range with the money up front and they will mail it to you over the $40 free shipping, or is it all direct through their website ? My nearest GW is about an hour and a half so...

You can definitely get SG stuff through your local GW's portal. I know I can even get FW stuff at mine, though I'm not sure whether the fact it's a Bunker affects that.

You can always call the store in advance about whether it's possible or not, perhaps you can even order the models over the phone and go pick them up at the store.
