After you’ve added your card number, you'll need to confirm that you own the card. Here’s how:
We’re introducing a new and improved Profile to some customers. Until all customers are using the new Profile, there are 2 sets of instructions on how to do this. Please follow the instructions that match what you see on the site.
Authorize PayPal to send a code to you
Locate the charge and a code on your card statement
PayPal*1234 CODE or PP*1234 CODE
Confirm your card by entering the code
Have your 4-digit PayPal code ready.
there is nowhere to enter that 4 digit code! i can see my card 'ready to confirm' when i click it I can view details or edit and there on the edit screen i can enter 3 digit security code and that's it! where do i enter 4 digit code?
I had the same issue. I had to ultimately call their number and confirm the card there. Sux that Paypal does not have clear instructions about it.
If I had to guess, I would think they forgot to implement the feature when they revamped their website. Lets hope someone out there from Paypal is watching these messages and making note of this problem.
My problem is that I can not see the number in my card statement
I can see the value but the description only says COMPRA MASTERCARD INTERNACIONAL.
What can I do?
That card sounds as if its a virtual / prepaid card and as such you may not be able to confirm it.
Only customer services can tell you that for sure though.
