Your Account May Only Be Used to Send Money

Hi all,

 

when I select "request money" I get this message:

Your Account May Only Be Used to Send Money

As a PayPal Send Only account holder, you are not permitted to receive funds from other PayPal account holders.

Your account cannot receive payments. To receive payments, set up your account.

 

 

and when I select "set up your account" I get this message: 

You have requested an outdated version of PayPal. This error often results from the use of bookmarks.

 

 

Please help to solve this problem.

 

Thanks,

Hi waelrt,


Welcome to the community.

 

Not all countries can receive funds at this time I am afraid, you can check your country here http://paypal.com/worldwide 

 

In relation to the bookmark error please clear your cache & cookies & try a different browser, this should resolve this issue.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Siobhan

The option to receive and withdraw paypal payments is not available in sri lanka, you can only send payments.

 

Click on the link below and select the country you want from the drop down list for options available in that country.

Re: Your Account May Only Be Used to Send Money

Hi. I have the same issue, my account can only receive money, however my country (New Caledonia) can receive money as well as send and withdraw money according to this URL: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=%5fdisplay%2dcountry%2dfunctionality%2doutside&dispatch=58...

 

I can't find any settings that I missed to allow my account to receive money (as I have a merchant website). Can anyone help me and tell me how to "set up my account"? When I click on that link it just goes back to the "Summary page".

Thank you
