I have no need or have any intention of buying a mobile phone.
What annoys me further is PayPal state it is an EU regulation - well the good people of the UK voted to leave the EU, mainly because of all these regulation.
The problem are still not solve. I have a cellphone for listen music or using internet but no call. (don't have number)
But i'm not going to pay for a line or service just to have paypall.
I have a landline why not to send a code on it. Or by e-mail.
I shop a lot online and some of them have just paypall option.
What can I do more. Just because i can't receive your SMS !?
I have money. I have credit card. i have bank account. I have a landline phone#. I have an adress... I have an e-mail adress too.
Give more options !!!! You want information no problem!? But no SMS!!!!
What can I do !???????
PayPal, please consider allowing your customers a choice in sending your security codes via the PP account-holder's email addresss or a cell phone.
I'm helping a PP account-holder - who has no cell phone, but does have a computer - by negotiating a mutually agreeable phone meeting date/time, we connect via phone (one cell, one land-line), he clicks a PayPal link to access Iforgetwhat. He clicks the link, it generates a confirmation code that comes to my cell phone, & I tell him over the phone what the code is. He enters it, it works, he calms down, and life goes on 'til the next time. Bizzare but true.
There are more bizzare but true problems we're having with our PayPal account, including my email address unexpectedly winding up on our account, changing all of our users' passwords to the same password, but that - and other problems - are for another topic.
Please, give us customers a security-code-via-email option.
Thanks for listening.
"Who the heck thinks this is a solution to solve the problem saying SOLVED!! As posted top of page!!"
The thread was marked solved by an administrator ... PayPal_Rajesh on the 24th of August I suspect they are hoping the thread will go away !!!
truely horrible design paypal. Let me access my money without adding a mobile number. Why require this? Fraud? Lame excuse.
I bought something on ebay through paypal. It worked, I just never recieved my stuff. Since I dont have a cell phone I cat get a confirmation number.No one you can call. No more Ebay No more Pay pal
Bad enough for Paypal to be unhelpful generally but offering no accommodation to overseas military is unconscionable. as so many people have pointed out there are so many alternatives to the cell phone verification that there is no excuse for not offering any. Paypal should be ashamed of its lack of any helpful response & fake " resolution".
One fears that, once a moderator slaps "solved" on a thread, however unjustifiably, that's the signal for nobody at Paypal to ever read the thread in future.
^^^^^^^ this !
The two threads with the most replies in the My Account forum are this and the the PSD2 thread, basically both about the same subject, neitherbis going away much as they would like them to. Time to raise s complaint with the Financial Ombudsman Service I think.
