Right now, when I purchase online , Paypal will withdraw funds from my bank account.
I have had only 2 transactions.
1st one went through smoothly via Instany Transfer.
But the 2nd one was done via eCheck which is help over till Feb 26th. I do not know why.
My intention is to link my bank debit crd with my paypal account.
Can it be done ?
I ask this question because I wanted to install Netfix. Payment method was via Paypal. But it ask for a credit card or debit card as " backup " ?
When I entered my debit card number, it was rejected. But today, 10 hours later, I bought grocery with my bebit card and there was no problem.
What did I do wwrong ?
There's nothing wrong with your debit card, PayPal is just goofy sometimes about both credit and debit cards.
From the FAQs:
Here are some issues you might have when linking a debit or credit card to your PayPal account:
If you’re still having trouble:
Does your debit card displays the Visa or MasterCard logo and have a security code? If yes, it should link. Else, you may want to try contacting customer support for assistance.
Answer to :
Q1.. If your card is linked to a different PayPal account, you'll need to remove it from that account before linking it to the new account.
No. I have only one paypal account.
Q2. Try using a different payment method, like your bank account.
I tought Paypal was doing that..
My 1st transaction was via Instant Transfer, BUT, the 2nd transaction has turned to eCheck which won't go through until Feb 26th. I don't understand why Paypal switches to eCheck on my 2nd transaction.
Q3.Does your debit card displays the Visa or MasterCard logo and have a security code
My debit card is the good old-fashioned bank debit card. It does not carry the Visa or master card logo.
