The PayPal account is based on the Visa credit card system and allows you, after a certain probationary period, to receive an actual card that can be used like a credit card.
Know you are ready to sell. You can use your PayPal account, or an agreed-upon means to accept payment, to pay your auction fees. Generally this will be on a monthly billing cycle.

The process will begin by asking for the ISBN number of the book. This can be found on most dust jackets or the publisher information page - usually the 3rd page of the book. Type in the number and it will pull up the information about the book including a photo of the dust jacket.
This action will take you to a page that will walk you through the process in 5 easy steps, including noting the condition of the book, the price you are asking and the means of and cost of shipping the book.
You will be asked to fill out a comment section on the book. Give information on the edition and if it has a dust jacket.
