Paypal: Because I am a noob.

Figured I'd get the confession done in the title. I've never really shopped online, but I'm looking to get into it, and so naturally set up a paypal account. But I'm confused as to how to tie in my credit card to it. I created an account, gave my name and address and email and stuff, but that's it. It was a normal account, too. None of that premium stuff, though I wonder if I have to do that. Anywho, my issue is that I can't see an option to register my credit card. Instead, all I see is an option to tie my bank account in, and some kind of interface that seems to suggest I store money on paypal, and then use it as I see fit. I've no interest in doing this, I just want to be able to use my credit card online, which I KNOW you can do, as I've had a friend ebay stuff for me using her credit card/paypal combo in the past. So in short, how the heck do I tie my credit card into this paypal account?

Bear in mind I've never done this before, so I need specifics.

Also, I apologize if I'm getting details wrong here, or if it's supposed to work this way, or whatnot. Feel free to correct me.

    The choice is lube or no lube.

    (Just kidding, lube costs extra.)

    When you login to your Paypal account, go to the Profile link at the top and there's a link for Credit/Debit cards which allows you to add cards.
