Using paypal?

My father is letting me use his paypal to order somethign form someone on the site. But this is my first time using it. What am I supposed to send him to complete this transaction? I do not know his paypal information.

First thing you will need is the receivers paypal address. Then ask them how they want you to send the payment. Once logged into paypal select "send money" and follow directions

* log in
* choose 'make payment' or send payment (something like that)
* enter in the seller's email/paypal id
* enter the amount to be paid
* make a note like 'buying so and so product'
* hit submit

that's it.

If you are unfamiliar (which you are), kindly ask the person you are purchasing from to send you a money request. He will fill out all the necessary information, including price. And once you or your father receives that email, you choose your method of payment, enter shipping address (if the option is available), and send the payment.

Just be sure to be careful with your father's Paypal account, don't use it without his permission!

I agree, just for safety sake be sure the person who you are buying from invoices you and clearly tells you up front how much it is then have dad sit in on the transaction.
