The most important thing to remember is that you must find and buy an item that accepts PayPal and then pay with PayPal. You will only see the discount when using PayPal as payment. If you have a coupon code and plan to use it on an purchase, it is your responsibility to verify before buying that the seller does accept PayPal.
You are still obligated to pay the seller for the item even though you cannot use your coupon or gift certificate.
Currently, coupons are only valid for items listed on eBay.com, eBay.ca, and eBay.co.uk.
Make sure that the email address on the coupon is associated with your PayPal account; if it isn’t, add that email address to your PayPal account.
All discount coupons have expiration dates.
