Long story short: i am unable to withdraw my balance as i no longer have access to the bank account on the account, and it is not allowing me to add another bank account. Any help is much appreciated, thank you in advance.
Try withdrawing to any linked confirmed debit card on your paypal account?
Failing that contact customer services and see if they will post you a cheque out??
Contact options for Paypal are accessed by clicking help/contact bottom left of Paypal pages...
1. Paypal phones are slowly re-opening and increasing in numbers (you can use the guest option if you can't log in). 2. Live chat is also randomly available. 3. You can send them a message, during business hours you may also be able to message whilst logged out. Or 4. Have you considered contacting Customer Service via Facebook or Twitter? You can send them a personal message from their Facebook or Twitter pages. It's: https://www.facebook.com/PayPalUK and @AskPayPal for Twitter.
