No good deed goes unpunished.

 

Your account is possibly done for. Never a good idea to add someone’s card or bank to your PayPal account. Not sure why your friend can’t open their own account, it’s free to open one unless they were under age. Even if you verified the card with their paper statement or whatever...doesn’t mean PayPal will let you use the account like that. You have no choice but try to verify the card. If you need to upload a document to verify the card, instead, write a letter explaining what the situation is, pdf it, upload and hope for the best. 

Another way to have done the transaction was for your friend to request a PayPal invoice or money request from the recipient and then use the credit/debit card option to pay without a PayPal account.


Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂
