Paypal credits

Do you automatically charge the Paypal account when needed or should I add credits manually? If credit reaches $0, are the droplets erased ? Do you send any prior alert?

You have to top up your account manually. We will send you a few reminder emails once your balance runs low, you'll be given a few grace days. The droplets will be destroyed if your balance reaches $0.00 and you do not make a payment at all.
Does ' The droplets will be destroyed if your balance reaches $0.00 and you do not make a payment at all.' apply if you have a credit card on file? I thought the idea with the card was that if you had a non-credit balance at the end of the month, that card would be charged for that balance.
@oloryn: My previous comment was about PayPal accounts. Accounts with credit cards are not affected if the balance reaches $0 (and lower), the outstanding funds will automatically be billed at the end of each month.
Is there a reason I can not auto-pay with paypal?

I too would like to know why PayPal isn't a re-accuring payment like many other sites do. I guess its good insurance if your account ever gets compromised/deleted, as I've heard stories from former customers that their credit card continued to get charged even after their account was closed for almost a year. With PayPal (at the moment) you have to manually authorized every payment which isn't a big deal, but still it would be nice to have an agreement to sign that says "I am authorizing you to bill my paypal each month"
