As long as you have that amount on your credit card, it shouldn't be a problem. What are you ordering? Is it being shipped to India?

You can view your Sending Limit on your Limits page.

Here's How:

1. Click the My Account tab.
2. Click the View Limits link next to the yellow Balance box (if there is not a View Limits link, your account has no Sending Limit).
3. Your remaining sending limit is listed under the Sending Limit heading.

This may also have something to do with becoming a verified member. Click on the verification link and take it from there. Paypal will typically deduct a couple of cents from your CC account and ask you to confirm the amount.

I'm a regular user of paypal. (For Skype payments etc.)

For an amount of that size, I would prefer to use my credit card directly. If there are any discrepancies, I can take it up with the company and my bank directly.

correction to my earlier post..
there doesnt seem to be a cap on sending .
this is what the limit policy says for my account

Your daily card withdrawal limit is: $500.00 USD per day

$500.00 USD Remaining
it does not mention the sending limit anywhere.
i am a verified member since 2005.
sorry for the wrong info in the earlier post..
and i guess sam is correct, for bigger accounts, bank transfers are
more reliable and transparent.

cheers

Sam, I have a different point of view. I have had issues with my CC when Lufthansa had charged my CC twice for a single trip (it was a one-way fare, but they charged me twice for the same ticket). When I approached my CC company/bank, they said they could not do anything and I had to contact the merchant (wonder how they can do this in the first place without a valid chargeslip).

I finally had to take it up with Lufthansa who accepted responsibility and paid back the charges to me. The case being, I had signed the chargeslip only once but the CC company allows the merchant to charge me twice and does not even have an efficient dispute addressal procedure.

I has also recently signed up on a website that offered "absolutely legal unlimited number of high-quality mp3 and movie downloads for $14 per month". After signing up, I realised that it was just another bogus website that redirects a user to torrents, no different than the peer to peer (free) networks. I had used paypal to sign up, so I used Paypal's dispute addressal forms to contact the seller and complained about this. In 4 days or so, I did get my money back from the website.

Has also used the dispute addressal procedure for another web based purchase of mine when the goods were not delievered on time... paypal got the merchant to ship the item by FedEx International priority and also got me a 20% refund.

Without a proper 'Purchase/Buyer protection programme' amongst the CC companies, I would tend to trust Paypal better.

If you are funding your PayPal account via Credit Card, find out about the Credit card limit too. Some cards might have a limit.
