operate paypal without bankaccount?

is there any option equivalent (pre-paid accounts etc) that can be used as an alternative to owning or having a bank account, in order to be able to buy and sell through paypal?

thanks

You can have a paypal account without any link to a bank account and you can use it.

"Can I use PayPal if I don't have a bank account or credit card?
Yes, you can. You can add money to your PayPal account with MoneyPak. MoneyPak allows you to enjoy the benefits of PayPal without using a credit card or bank account. Pick up a MoneyPak at over 40,000 retailers for a service fee of $4.95 or less. "

How about prepaid debit cards.
They work like credit cards and can be used anywhere those can as they have a similar number but you buy them charged up with money like $100

I don't think you can open a paypal account without linking a bank account. It's how they verify your identity. However you can then close the bank account and paypal will stay open. You just won't have an way to get money out of the account which kind of defeats the purpose of selling stuff.
