In the early days of online poker, Paypal was the most popular deposit method. It was (and still is) the most trusted, widespread, and most marketed of any online payment solution. However, once the legal ground of online gaming became murkier and the US government actively started pursuing the issue of online poker, Paypal refused to conduct business with any gambling operation of any kind.
The fact is that there is no way to get money from your Pay Pal account to an online poker site. Any poker room or website claiming to offer online poker Paypal payments is violating their all-encompassing Terms of Service agreement. It simply isn't smart to attempt to use your Paypal account for gambling as your money will likely be seized, your account disabled, and an investigation may follow.
