The problem with that is that there are approximately infinity number of sellers and outlets who take Paypal and nothing else, exclusively, or else if they do take something else it's a major, major, major pain in the ass like inter-bank / wire transfer or similar, which tends to take your autobiography in triplicate, signed, countersigned, notarized, blessed by the Three Cave Hermits and the Delphi Oracle (to provide you with the three dozen magic numbers longer than a PGP signature - each), filed at your local bank office in person, costing no less than $50 for a $9.99 transfer.
