So I've created this account and linked it to an empty Master card which is working, I created this account before the lockdown by like a month or so, I couldn't link my card till I contacted the support and they called me and did some procedures like verifying that it's me, verifying the address, sending $1 then taking it back real fast (he was with me on the phone that time) etc.. I never tried to receive any money eversince, but now I can't link it to any website, I tried to link it to Playstation but it didn't work, said try again later, same for other many famous websites. Also, a friend of mine tried to send me $10 and it said "Sorry, there’s a problem. Please try again later." we tried many times in different timezones and different time and still same error..
Then I created another account and linked it to the same Master card and it said "Sorry, this payment can’t be completed due to regulations."
NOTE: I'm from Egypt, the guy who was sending me the cash is from Israel (I have an Egyptian friend with a working Paypal, so it works in Egypt)
I sent like 3 messages to Paypal "Contact us", once every month or something and they didn't respond AT ALL, no idea why.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Read this policy especially section one as you are in 1 of the affected countries.
I still don't know why exactly me? As I said my friend has a PayPal account and it's working for him, I did verify my account tho as I said
Did you actually READ section 1 in the link i posted?
Yes but I'm sorry I still didn't understand. May you elaborate please? I can only see that my country is affected by the 'Agreement' and some other terms or how things work here in Paypal which are -sorry- pretty useless/known.
Yes I did that, or does it have to be Visa and not mastercard in my country? Because I don't really know if my friend is using Visa or Mastercard. But I used Mastercard and verified it.
Thank you, I somehow missed this information. I am gonna try to search who in the family has a VISA card and try again. Maybe I please message if there is any other problem? Seems you have information.
