Pledge on Kickstarter without Paypal

Can I pledge on Kickstarter using PayPal?

Have you found a really great Kickstarter project that you want to back, but your bank doesn’t allow you to use your debit or credit card? In that case, you’re not the first to check if you can pledge at Kickstart using PayPal. Unfortunately Kickstarter doesn’t support PayPal due to usage policies. PayPal provides buyer protection for purchases, which allows backers to retrieve the purchase amount at any given moment. This could have negative affects on the completion of a project being funded.
