    I have scoured the Paypal site and could not find an answer to this.

    I don't want to validate a PP account using my bank or CC details, is there any way to put money into a PP account without doing that.

    I just want to buy some games off GOG, and I want to pay using Paypal, I've never used it. I just want to be able to use something similar to topping up on my mobile. Do shops do PayPal credits, if so which ?

    How would you expect to put money into PayPal without using, you know, money?

    Bank account or credit card.

    Exactly the same way as I asked in the OP, you go into a shop, in the shop you go to the counter and hand over money and they either automatically top up your account or hand you a receipt with an activation code. Just like mobile phones and xbox live does.

    Was that really so hard to understand.

    PayPal doesn't have giftcards. You could use a prepaid credit card like Moneybookers but that requires bank details. In short without a bank account and credit/debit card you cannot use PayPal.

    Have they stopped doing those credit cards you can buy in corner shops for cash? I guess they've got a massive markup on them which is why I've not used one for 3DS points, but it may be an option if you've more money than sense.

    My local Sainburys sells PayPal gift cards. But as far as I know you might still have to give them your bank details for them to verify your ID.

    I would have thought Anti money-laundering laws would prevent you using PayPal in an anonymous cash-only basis.
