I can not log into my account because my log in could not be verified because my landline is my primary contact instead of my mobile number

I cannot access my account because I must provide a mobile phone number. There are many other members here that have the same problem. What is the resolution of this issue? None.

 

My bank, here in Canada, gives me the option of sending me an access number to log into my online banking account either through a mobile phone OR a landline.  Cannot PayPal do the same?

 

I am now obligated to buy a mobile phone which I will use only for the purpose of accessing my PayPal account and I must pay a carrier service each month for use of a mobile phone solely for accessing my PayPal account.

 

I cannot afford this option nor should it be the only option. Why did you not tell me in advance of this change in your TOS?  Why cannot you add the landline option wherein an automated call is made to my registered landline and an access number is given verbally?

 

Yes I called you and the lady was very polite and very helpful and very unable to change this new rule.  It is to protect my account.  So much so that not even I can access it.

 

Well, now it is fully protected. 

 

Who is in charge here?  We have a community but who hears us?  Who does PayPal answer to?

 

ADD THE LANDLINE OPTION

Hi kernowlass,
 
Thanks for the different options you have given to me. I did talk directly with a representative over the phone and she was adamant that I needed a mobile phone and it must be with a credited carrier; not a VOIP app.
 
I have neither Facebook nor Twitter but I could try the contact via this site or the chat function. Or send them an email. As you suggested.
 
But it comes down to why can they not offer the Landline option.  I cannot change their policy.  Will they listen to me? 
 
I need this service to purchase from Ebay.  I will also go there to post that I can no longer purchase from them because of this issue. 
 
And there is also the option of the Federal Trade Commission.  PayPal offers us a community to post complaints but their service borders on the dictatorial.  Customer-Friendly?  Hardly.
 
But your input and advice is appreciated and I thank you for replying.
 
Wishing you the best,
 
Bill
