I don't think Amazon takes PayPal but you could just go to the store and get a Amazon gift card

Supermarkets and drugstores like Walgreens sell them plus this way you can feel safe shopping online just about every store now sells gift cards.

Amazon and Ebay are in competition. Amazon does not have an option to use PayPal since it's an Ebay owned company. You can use your PayPal debit though.

I just use my debit card..And if you don't have one or can't get one, look into green dot or the walmart one. I think it's bluebird or something like that..

Yes, they won't let me because my PayPal is in my maiden name and they won't change it for me without a ton of documentation.
