The Mars Curiosity rover landed on Mars earlier this week with a simple rocket powered crane maneuver ( ) Today's icebreaker is: Should we send humans to Mars or just keep sending robots? Would you volunteer for a one way trip?
I don't think I'd personally volunteer to colonize Mars. I have a pioneering spirit in theory, but I think I like my creature comforts a little too much. I have a feeling Frank would go, though... and I'd cheer him on every day!
I just started selling again after a year off. Feedback is 5, but now I can't print or access paypal funds at all. It says add a debit card, could I use a prepaid card for this? Holds funds 3 weeks, where is the money supossed to come from, if not the paypal funds?
Some prepaid cards work with PayPal. It all depends on if the card issuer is able to verify your billing address. You can try adding one to see. It might also be asking you to add a card if there are no other active cards or banks on file with PayPal.
To learn more about the funds availability program, I recommend checking out this thread:
Adrian posted a lot of great info and links to learn more.
I hope this helps.
You're in the chat! Welcome. Please feel free to ask us a question, or discuss today's icebreaker, or better yet - both!
I tried using an active paypal debit card and it wouldn't work, which cards do?
Sorry, we don't have a list of card issuers that support address verification. Perhaps you can add a bank or a bank debit card? Will that work?
Edit: Since you're receiving payments, you'll probably want to add a bank anyways so that you can transfer the proceeds of your sales to your bank account.
I have a bank account linked and verified, bank didnt offer debit cards at the time of adding to paypal. But still won't give me access to funds for shipping.
