I just set up my first-ever PayPal account. The account has been successfully established, but the link to my credit card has not yet been completed.
I received a notice saying that a charge (US$1.98, I think) would initially be made against the card, and afterwards I would get a 4-digit code sent to "my account." I should then go back to my PayPal account, input that code, and the link to the credit card would then be completed.
That was a week ago. To the best of my knowledge, I have not yet received that code by email or anywhere in my PayPal account. I asked about this today, and was told to click on "Notifications", go to Message Center, and read the answer to my query. I did, and it basically said we've sent the 4-digit code to your account. I logged out and tried to re-read the message, but now "Notifications" icon is nowhere to be found, so I cannot reread the message.
Can anyone tell me: 1) WHERE would this 4-digit code have been sent -- to my email? Somewhere within PayPay? on a printed bill sent to my billing address? 2) Other ideas on how to proceed? 3) Assuming I find a way to put money in PayPal account, can I make payments with it, or must I complete the link to my credit card before I can do so?
