Unable to Link Bank Account

For several days I have tried each day to link a Chase Business checking account to my personal PayPal account but can't.  First, when I try to link the account I immediately I get this error: "We were unable to link your bank instantly.  Please enter your bank information below."

 

When I follow that direction and try to link with the alternative "2 trial deposits" method, I immediately see this error: "Sorry, we are not able to process your request.  Please try again later."

 

I was able to change my only linked bank account a few days before without a problem.  I thought maybe I couldn't have more than one bank account linked, so I deleted the newly linked account I just added and tried again the next day to link the business checking account with the same result.  Just now I've tried to add back the personal account I had deleted and I'm now getting the same errors for that.  I've looked at other posts and none of the advice seems to explain why I am having problems.  Please help.

Re: Unable to Link Bank Account

The same is happening with me and I have also created the thread for the same. Whats more insane is- Paypal staff says that they will send Deposits automatically and when i click on send deposits, Paypal gives error.

Re: Unable to Link Bank Account

I found out my problem was I had just opened a new bank account just for PayPal and hadn’t put any money in it yet. I thought the bank clerk had done it as I asked but she must have forgotten. As soon as I transferred money into it I could link instantly.

Re: Unable to Link Bank Account

Hi there! I tried to add my bank account to my PayPal back in September 2019. I went to put in the small deposit numbers on the screen and the system froze and didn't work. It said too many attempts exceeded when I was trying to put in the correct deposit amount. Now my bank account is blocked/locked in their system somehow and I can't link my bank account to my PayPal. This is hopeless. How did you get your issue resolved?
