Paying for items using Immediate Payments requires you to pay for the item in order to win it (unlike other cases in which you win on eBay first, then pay for the item). You pay through PayPal with a credit card or with other PayPal funds (including a PayPal balance or a bank account).
To use Immediate Payments, you need to:
Note: Be sure to finish your payment quickly so someone else does not win the item.
To purchase an item using Immediate Payment:
Note: If you have previously purchased items from this seller, you'll see a View purchase history link on the listing page. You can click this link to see versions of the item you've purchased.
For items paid for using Immediate Payment that have both a starting bid price and a Buy It Now price, the Buy It Now price disappears when a bid is placed.
