We've been through all this over the last couple of years, and the fact is if only using paypal for ebay transactions a debit card is fine because PayPal itself is the one already offering you the protection, or lack thereof if the buyer claims all his money back... I wouldn't expect a credit card company to side with you rather than paypal in that situation but I may be wrong.
As mentioned above the sensible thing to do would be for her just to use your accounts. The benefits are two fold - presumably you already have feedback on your ebay account so she doesn't have to buy up rubbish from sellers and then sell it on to build up a track record and a simple paypal set up.
