I have US bank accounts and confirmed debit and credit cards linked to my account, but cannot make a direct transfer payment to someone. When I try to add funds to my PayPal account from my bank account, it says it will take 3 - 5 days, but I need to make an instant transfer. When I click on the link for 'instant transfer' on the adding funds page, it takes me to the 'Send Money' page. Can I make an instant transfer to my own account by using the "Send Money' or is there another way to do it?
Having the same trouble I want to send funds instantly to my paypal account via my confirmed bank account but it tells me I can't send money to myself!
Having the same issue. I have both a verified bank account, credit card, and debit card. When I try to send money, it will not give me the instant transfer option. I called customer service and it was like talking to a wall...
Long story short, I was told there's a security setting on my account (which no one could tell why even though I've had a paypal account for over 4 yrs and have been in good standing at all times). The customer service rep told and i quote "try the option again sometime" When I asked how long the sometime option was - 24 hrs or 48 hours, she did not know how long.
