Paypal - cash or purchase

I considering buying an item on Ebay. If I use paypal and my 0% card will the transaction count as a cash withdrawl or a purchase if I am paying another individual. Obviously I prefer to make it a purchase. :)

Thanks in advance for your help.

    If you are purchasing an item from ebay, then it should count as a purchase.
    I am assuming you are purchasing a proper item via ebay and not tryig to just transfer some money to a friend.
