Can I apply an eBay gift card to my PayPal account without purchasing an item on eBay?

I am not sure if this is possible. I have some eBay gift cards. I want to apply them to my account so that I can make purchases using PayPal and use the gift card balance. Is this possible? Or do these gift cards strictly apply to eBay purchases?

Never found a way. But why do you want to?

If anything happens to your PayPal then you lost access to the cards.

I had a PayPal account locked for two years.

I would of course use it right away. I was hoping to make a purchase from a site that allows PayPal payment using the eBay gift card balance.
