My paypal acc needs to be linked with cred card which I dont have yet. Can I use my dads one and change to my own later ?

Nope, can't be done. The name on the Paypal account MUST match the name on the card. Just link the account to your checking account.

Yep, I've been using Paypal for over 10 years with no CC attached.

You should get in touch with your credit card company to inquire if you can use your dad's credit card in the mean time. If it is not allowed, they will let you know the best cause of action to take.

Well only 4 months left till I can get my own visa/mastercard and I dont really see why I can't link my dads card for now and change to mine later. Why do I need to contact dads credit card company ? All I need to know is will I be able to delete his credit card from my paypal acc later on.

Really? I set up a Paypal account to pay for something purchased on-line because I didn't have a credit card at the time. I linked it to my credit union account - but perhaps you don't have a credit union or bank account either? Talk to your dad about using his credit card. If something were to go wrong, it could be a big problem.

In my country visa/mastercard credit cards are allowed only from 18 years but as 17 years old I earn loads of money. Just hit sending limit and need to link credit card.

Still, I think you'd be wise to talk to the owner of the credit card (your dad in this case) before you do anything with it.

Ofcourse hah, its his card not my. But he will surely let me.

You probably can with your dad's persmission. Ask PayPall how to go about it.

If your dad will let you use his card then go for it. You can add numerous cards to your account so you can definitely change it later when you get your own. Just make sure to make yours the primary then you can delete his if you'd like.
