Not as far as I know Feb 23, 2007

You might have some luck with individual ebay sellers as more and more of them have been abused by paypal and are trying to look into alternative payment methods. However Amazon accepts only traditional payments (cards), as far as I know. I was actually buying some books from them the other day and paid specific attention to payment methods. But that was only UK Amazon.

Actually, I don't think that's true. I think eBay bought PayPal after it became the favorite method of payment among eBay sellers and buyers. When I registered at PayPal it was not yet affiliated with eBay.

Just for the record.

What another option do I have Feb 24, 2007

Thanks first for your replies.

Paypal does not have that service in my country, Eritrea. And, credit cards are not practised well here. Let me extend one question, What are the major bookstores that accept if you know any.
