Because I know you guys know everything...Paypal!

So I created a Paypal account several years ago but never used it. Now I actually got around to verifying my bank account info and I'm all ready to go with it. It's linked to my checking account. Since I just set it up, the balance on my Paypal account is $0. If I make a purchase (say, on ebay) and pay by paypal, will it automatically pull that money out of my bank account? Or do I need to tranfer money from my bank account into my paypal account first? (It says that can take 3-5 days.)

I use paypal pretty often, but I always use my parent's account, which always already has money in it, so it's no biggie. I just never took the time to think about how exactly it works. Thanks for any help!
