I have tried googling Paypal trying to see what i need to do to make an account and keep getting the runaround. For clarification could I get the following answers from someone? Do I have to purchase a card to have an account or can i make one online without it? Are all cards the same? Do they have restrictions and can they all be linked with a debit card? Can I put the exact amount I'm going to use on it and toss in the trash? I swear this info should be searchable.
