We're sorry, but we can't send your payment right now. - POSSIBLE SOLUTION

***Long story short: Make sure you're using a mobile phone number that's accepted by PayPal***

 

This infamous and completely ambiguous error message was very frustrating.

 

It appears they can be many causes of the error, and thus many solutions.

 

I speculate on the cause and solution of mine:

 

- I entered a non-Australian mobile phone number when creating an Australian PayPal account.

- Whenever I attempted to Send Money to another PayPal account, this error message would appear.

- On one such attempt, PayPal asked me to verify my identity by sending a code to my mobile phone number.

- It didn't accept the phone number as valid (as it wasn't an Australian phone number).

- After registering and using an Australian phone number, I was able to get past the verification step on continue on to Send Money successfully.

 

I hope this can be of use to others who are suffering from the same infuriating error message.
