I want to sell some credits and I have a paypal account but I have only used it on ebay. When you use it for selling some thing like PBS credits how do you go about the process? Thanks anyone who can help

Yup. You give them the email address to your paypal account and they send the money to that account.

Yes, if you log into paypal.com and click the 'send money' button, all you need is the other person's email that's linked to the account.  I've used it both sending and receiving without a problem since before ebay had anything to do with them.

Make sure you know what kind of Paypal account you have.  If it's a personal account, you can only receive payments directly from someone's bank account or from their Paypal balance.  You can not receive credit card funded payments so make sure the buyer knows that.  Personal accounts are not charged any fee to send or receive money.

If you have a business account, you are charged to receive all payments (.30 plus a small percentage of the payment amount).  You can receive all payments with this kind of account though.

There are a bunch of different kinds of accounts on PayPal...I have a "Premier" account (not business) and can accept credit card payments.  But, yes, I am charged a fee to receive.
