Paying by Credit Card / Cash Advance


Paying by Credit Card / Cash Advance

I recently changed my profile from debit card to a credit card for paying for items that  I purchase on EBAY.( I was advised that the credit card method is less vulnerable to fraud).

The payments are being processed as Cash Advances rather than regular credit card transactions as they are  when I order from a catalog for instance. As a result I incur interest from the date of the transaction rather than after a billing cycle. I try very hard to avoid paying interest. 

Is there some way to keep these purchases from being processed as cash advances.  If this information was clear in the beginning I would not have made the change.
