No mobile phone...

i have never used or needed a mobile phone. Paypal is now insisting almost every time i log on that i can go no further without entering a mobile phone. So i entered my landline number and the system is trying to send txts to my landline. How do i fix this? 

 

The beauty of paypal when it was first setup 20 years ago when i started using it, was to allow money transactions just by knowing a user's email address. Then all you needed was a paypal password and confirmation via a bank account. Simple. The simplicity of this secure system has now been destroyed by the use of mobile phones and apps, which i neither like or want.

 

i don't want to confirm my ebay transaction by mobile phone, else i may as well just use my bank card.

 

What should i do?

Re: No mobile phone...

Hi, same here. There is a very simple solution: don't use Paypal. I'm slowly phasing it out.

You want to securely transfer money to a person? Use Interac e-transfer. Doesn't cost a dime (unlike their 3%) and you only need the e-mail address of the recipient. No mobile necessary. Normal shopping? Credit cards work, no 3% either.
