Can confirm - in the UK one can link their bank account directly to Paypal. The advantages and disadvantages of doing so are probably obvious.

Hi Bence,
this may differ from country to country.
In Germany I can put money on my PayPal account via credit card, wire transfer, or direct debit/withdrawal. That's why PayPal is (I know, in Germany) quite comfortable to use.

In the interest of providing free knowledge for all(/me), how is Paypal better where credit/debit cards don't work? (I would assume you still have to get your money into Paypal somehow.)

Best regards,
