fife based, but Scotland wide

so, all of a sudden without ever having set anything myself, all purchases i make on ebay it now pays without first taking me to the paypal screen that asks for my password, i'd like to re set it to ask everytime. Any ideas (please dont reply "ask ebay or paypal" i have done that but talk about slow to respond !

That doesn't sound right, eBay and PayPal shouldn't be linked like that

Log into PayPal directly and change your password there ASAP

[edit] and then log into ebay and change your password there too

PayPal is owned by eBay so they have made some changes to make paying easier.

Doing the password reset on PayPal should work.

I'm pretty sure I read something, a few months ago, about advice to change PayPal passwords.

On a computer or on a phone/tablet app ?
Like any dealer he was watching for the card that is so high and wild he'll never need to deal another...

To my knowledge eBay and PayPal can indeed be linked (as Howard says, they're part of the same company).

When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

Often the completion of a purchase via Paypal is via a intergrated page with paypal details on the right of the Ebay page, It will ask to complete the purchase but not always will it need the paypal password. I think if you place things in the basket it alters the checkout process. Either way I've not had problems providing you check the web address and make sure you are still on a Ebay page, there have been some fake Ebay pages.

But it works differently on apps. The apps offer to integrate payment at the touch of a button, because (like most apps) they assume that people want something which is easy to use even when the user is on EE (intermittent signal due to mast cutbacks) and have had a skinfull (intermittent brain). And, to be fair, it is normal for people to pay with paypal so integrating their two services is actually safer for the person making the purchase/payment.

I've absolutely no idea how this relates to my thoughts on how it works for me sometimes?

It works quite differently (with different opportunities for auto integration) on ios/android apps than on computers. So it is useful when telling how it works for you to specify the circumstances of your use.
As the OP doesn't specify I would guess he is using an app which is why his experience is different to yours.
