    Not sure where exactly to post this, so hopefully the Mods will understand me posting here.

    I'm trying to sell a motherboard/cpu but I don't have a pay pal account of my own. I have a friend that will let me have the money sent to her account. The problem is she has only uses that account on ebay(I guess the paypal payment are done through the ebay automation) and isn't sure as to exactly what information I need to do this transaction. Is it just the Pay Pal account's email address? Is there something more I need?

    yeah you need her email addy on the account,then your buyer send the money to her account and then you can request a check from paypal for the amount you sold your items for,or you can buy something online with it..

    just talked to my friend, and according to her, the money goes into her bake account and is usually there within 24 hours. I can deal with that.

    then she can just take the funds from her Paypal account, into her bank account, then get her to withdraw it in cash form.
