Hi,

 

I'm trying to add my bank account and I get this:

 

"An unknown service error occurred."

 

The bank account is not linked with any other paypal account.

 

Thanks

Jake

Got a reply, i still dont know what is going on, i am entering my details correctly, but atleast if you phone them they can get your account added.

 

"Thank you for contacting PayPal.

 

I understand the importance of this matter to you. Based on the error message you got, it appears that an incorrect account number was entered which is why the system was not accepting it. Please double check if it is an eight-digit account number without dashes and spaces. If you would still encounter difficulty, please contact the customer service by phone so we can manually add the bank account for you. The full bank account information will be asked from you which is not advisable to be provided through email.

Please call our customer support telephone line (087 07 307 191) from 8am to 10pm Monday to Friday, from 8am to 9pm on Saturday or from 9am to 9pm on Sunday.

 

It is my pleasure to assist you

Thank you for choosing PayPal."

This is clearly a joke. I tried calling them and after being on the the phone for about 14 minutes and all the credits in my mobile phone disappearing and I still couldn't get hold of anyone. It was an automated system of some sort which was exceptionally annoying. Please sort this nonsense out. Regards Very disappointed customer
