I do all my paypal purchases using my credit card.
I also leave my paypal bank account empty. Paypal takes what ever money you have in your bank account before they use a credit card.
I have a bank account for Paypal transactions.
I use a specific credit card just for my paypal account.
I only buy from verified Paypal users.

I bought a $900 cassette deck on ebay through paypal using my crediti card. It was a ripe off. Paypal said they would wait 10 days then pursue it. If they couldn't get the guy to return my money I was out of luck.
I called up the credit card company who said it was paypal's problem to get my money back. I said I used my credit card and it was the credit card companies problem. They removed the charge.
When I've received crappy parts through private sellers, I've contacted the credit card company and said the merchandise was not as described and returned it.
If they are a verified Paypal buyer you do have recourse if you use a credit card.
