o.m.g ebay is psychic?

so i had to buy a tux for my 1/2 sisters wedding - she asked if my son could be a ring bearer - Crazy. so i had to make an ebay account on the fly to make this happen and i bought the tux and i tried to find a way to put in my banking info ... i could NOT for the life of me find it... then i looked and at the bottom it already has everything from my bank... can someone explain this to me? how is my information already there for ebay when i just made the account

  • Did you already have a PAYPAL account?! Other than already having a linked account, there's no other way Ebay would have been able to obtain your banking info!

    I've been selling on Ebay for over 10 years, and have never had any security issues with it or PayPal before.

  • You sure you've never opened an account before? I am not sure, but am interested to know what others say.

  • I have never had that happen, did you put in the debit card number? I could see how that would be.

  • Well, I have had issues with security. LoriKeet is right though, if you already set up a Paypal account and linked it, then it might show up. Other than that, I would contact them and ask.
