Me Too. I can't withdraw money from Pay Pal to my Bank account
got all time this message
Unfortunately, your credit card must have a card verification number (also known as a card security code) to be used with PayPal
Found the "solution"! The whole situation is misleading... You'd think you're all set when you provide a debit card and you are able to send/receive money, BUT NO. There is no obvious spot anywhere that would signal you need to do it, but in order to lift the resctrictions on transfer you need to verify your debit card! So you go to 'Wallet', select your card and there you'll see the link where you will be setting a small amount of charge on the card along which they send a pin code. That code can be then used for the verification process. So when officially you may read that for lifting restrictions your Account should be verified, it actually is your Debit card they mean... Hope this helps someone! I was going mad about this and still don't know the exact limit...
I was able to transfer GBP 900 as single instance, but not more, and not more within like 7 days. Anyhow, after verifying my debit card with that pin code process I could send my remainder balance right away to my bank. Regards,
It worked, thank you so much! I had this exact problem and couldn't figure out why I couldn't withdraw to my bank. I didn't know I had to verify my card and it wasn't mentioned anywhere that's a requirement. C'mon Paypal.. it shouldn't be this hard!
