questionsdoes woot use a paypal option


From the FAQ: What payment options do I have?
You can pay for your orders using VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, or Paypal accounts that are tied to a credit card. (Our fast-paced, annoying business model doesn't leave time to wait for your bank to confirm your account balance.) We do not accept checks, money orders, uncut gemstones, or broken promises.


Hmmm... my second woot account is setup with Paypal. The first purchase using that account pulled the funds from the linked bank account, NOT the linked credit card.

So, while woot may require that a credit card be linked to the Paypal account, they apparently will wait long enough to verify the bank account balance and take the money from there. (I've since modified woot's setup on my Paypal so furture purchases will use only a credit card.)
