Hello there!! I have been trying to link my bank account for a while now to no avail. I also recently acquired a Mastercard but it's not going through either. Paypal is not responding to my messages kindly I'll forever be grateful if I'll be helped.
You can't add a local bank account in your country, only a card. The only exception is you can add a U.S bank account to other countries paypal accounts. This is because Paypal is a U.S company. Also the option to withdraw funds (unless you have a U.S bank account is limited.
There are the added options only in Kenya of using the services of M-PESA or Equity Bank to transfer funds out of a PayPal account. If unable to get those to work, customer service assistance would be needed.
