if you connect your bank account to paypal, you can tranfer your paypal balance into your bank account. this is really only useful for people who are receiving more money than they are really going to spend via paypal, like folks who receive tons of orders, people who sell a lot on ebay, etc. but it can be useful for buyers too--if your paypal account is connected to your bank account, you can use the money in your checking account to make payments. there's really no downside to it that i have yet found, & i've been using paypal for over ten years. paypal takes a bite out of every payment you receive, but it's fairly negligible. i'm sure it adds up quick for paypal, but whatever.
