Could you get a Paypal card and use that?

I know most people get a/use their credit card for etsy selling. Has anyone just used their debit card/bank draft? I know a lot of people aren't comfortable w/ doing that, but I do that w/ amazon.com, and have never had any problems. Are there any specific reasons why you wouldn't want to do it that way, or is it just personal preference? I don't really like using my credit card very much... I know that's backwards from everyone else, it's just kind of a personal preference. Anyways, any advice on this would be very helpful! Thanks!

I think Etsy requires that a "credit" card be on file with them as a way to pay. (Could be wrong haven't looked lately) However i have no real credit card so I just use my debit card with a visa logo on it as a credit card for them.

I have no reason to suspect Etsy.
I have heard of many cases of people getting hold of debit card info and causing endless problems. One case was Dollar Tree. A company that is large enough to take precautions. I do not want to risk anyone messing with my bank checking account. One little misplaced decimal means the mortgage, utility, and credit card payments are being rejected while one tries to straighten out the with the bank. and the domino effect with the mortgage company, utilities and credit card companies. It can take weeks even months. I've been there.
I use a credit card online. I have a specific card for online.
If I did not have a credit card I would get and use one of the prepaid debit cards.

If mistakes are going to happen I'd rather they happen on a credit card that my bank checking account. Besides most credit cards have a provision and limit for if your card is stolen and used by someone else. My bank doesn't have that.

My daughter was able to use a pre-paid Visa - but, this was over 2-years ago.  I don't know what the current policy is.
