I've recently experienced a strange thing when coming to pay with paypal. For aslong as I can remember I have been able to use my bank account when going to checkout. I have both my card and bank account connected to my account but have my bank account as my preferred method. Now up until 2 weeks ago I was able to log in and pay using bank account. Now though its simply not their or it states (your preferred method is unavailable). Ive called Paypal and had numerous message conversations. ( remove and re add bank account etc etc.) No solution has worked and Paypal support has been unhelpful to say the least. My only thinking is brexit could of had some impact? Is anyone else having this issue?
Thanks for any help you can offer,
Seems as if you had problems with the bank account before?
Did you get that resolved or is it the same issue?
If not then have you had a failed bank transfer or negative balance at all recently?
Is your direct debit mandate between your bank account and Paypal still set up and not been cancelled?
Does your bank account name exactly match your paypal account name?
