You added money to PayPal with your debit card? If I am not mistaken, that is not extract funds from linked cards to your PayPal balance. Either linked bank account or via third party site. Otherwise, one simply selects linked debit card or other funding source as the payment method during checkout. If funds does end up in your PayPal balance, all is well then. For sure, there has to be funds available in your PayPal balance first before you can spend it.

Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂
