I want to buy something on ebay with my paypal balance. Site won't let me unless I provide a credit card, which I did, and it says 'card declined' even tho I've used it many times before. And I WILL NOT give out any bank account info to them or anyone else. They have no right to keep my money. It's my money!
Have you confirmed the card with the 4 digit code sent to your card statement when you added it?
Does the billing address of the card match your paypal account address exactly?
Are the funds in your balance in the correct currency?
Have you done this? >>>
