Most sites where you can buy products with PayPal require your account to be verified. It appears that the only way to verify your account is by associating it with your bank account. I prefer not to give companies direct access to my bank account, since if there is an error on their end, a security breach, etc. I could be out a lot of money with no warning. I would like to associate it with a credit card instead, where the money won't be taken out of my account until I pay my monthly credit card bill. This gives me the ability to dispute claims through the credit card company, which is much more likely to succeed.
Is there any way to have a verified address using a credit card instead of direct access to my bank account?
