Merchant account needed?

I am considering PayPal business account. I understand they take credit cards. Does this mean I do not have to have a separate merchant account or I need a separate merchant account in addition to paypal?

Re: Merchant account needed?



Thank you for reaching us thru Community Forum. Business account can be also used a merchant account. You can use it to accept payment in the merchant/services that you sell or offer online. You can also use this account to send money thru friends and family or purchase an item. Credit card is one of the funding source option that you can use however it will be just for making a payment. For transferring money to your PayPal account or withdrawing money. It should be debit card or bank account. Hope this helps.
