Re: Why can't I pay with my debit card?

I have been using paypal almost 2 years. Now I having the same problem just the first time, my debit card is fine but the payment to the buyer still pending that's mean I need to wait longer to get the shipment.

 

I am not happy with this maybe to find another way to make it quicker.

If you are sending signed for then you  must post within seven days of receiving payment.

 

If the payment is pending in a held balance untill feedback is left you should post as soon as possible in order that feedback can be received and your funds released.

Re: Why can't I pay with my debit card?

Hey there guys,

 

If your payment to your buyer is pending, its been sent via an eCheque.

 

I would ask you to make sure you have confirmed your card as having a confirmed back up funding source will significantly reduce the chance of eCheques being sent.

 

Both your bank account and card will have to be confirmed.

 

  1. Go to www.paypal.co.uk and log in to your account.
  2. Click ‘Profile’ near the top of the page.
  3. Click ‘Credit/Debit Cards’ under ‘Financial Information.’ (Don’t see this step? Follow the instructions below.)
  4. Click ‘Link and Confirm My Card.’
  5. Click ‘Save and Continue.’

Re: Why can't I pay with my debit card?

There can be quite a few reasons, for starters if your payment method is defaulting to eCheque then more likely you usually pay by Instant Transfer rather than your Debit Card.

 

On the payment review page are you given any other funding options?

 

In addition, check the expiry date on your card in your profile, under 'cards', update it if needs be.

Re: Why can't I pay with my debit card?

You set up a direct of which I was unaware it used my Personal Reserve that has cost a £22 penalty clause all to pay £9.79 . To say the least I am not too pleased. There should have been sufficient funds to cover this amount but your transfer of funds to me took more time than did for you to claim from my bank account
