    I only have a CC paypal account. Can I use this to receive payment for something, and if so, does the money go to my CC associated with the account? The CC I'm using for the account is a pre-paid debit card.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Yes you can receive payments. If the card is the only thing you have attached to your paypal account then I do believe it can be put on the card. But don't quote me on that. If you also had a checking account tied to it you could transfer the money to that account. You could set it up to use the card as paying out funds and the checking account for receiving funds. "toast"

    Yes you can receive a payment. However it only goes to your paypal account. You can spend it from there or get a check or debit card for a fee. You can transfer it to a bank account but you have to link it to the account. This is free but takes a couple of days

    Transfer to an account = free
    Request a check = $1.50
    Receive a debit card = Free
    Receive cash out of an ATM = $1.00

    No you cannot add it to the CC account

    so worse case scenario, I'll get a debit card mailed to me with the money credited to that card.

    Might be wise for you to get the debit card if you would use it often. If not then request a check. Just my .02

    It will show as X$ on your PayPal balance. If you have a debit card associated with your PayPal account, then if you use said debit card it will automatically deduct the money spent from your PayPal balance.

    If you are using a PayPal debit card any thing you purchase from that card gets you a 1.5% cash back to your PayPal balance....It will take about a month to see the cash back.
