You may have run into a member who is under the new ebay managed payments program.  Sellers who are in that program are not allowed to accept paypal as a payment option.  There are many sellers who are not in that program yet and are still offering paypal as a payment option.  A sellers offered payment options are on the right side of the item page~~it will have paypal along with credit card options.  If paypal is not there with the credit card options it means the seller doesn't accept paypal.

Same problem, spent 3 hours getting the run-around from eBay customer service and none of them know anything. Sellers in every case accept PayPal, most of them exclusively. I've pretty much decided to leave eBay as a result.
