I can´t pay with Paypal without having a credit card.

I can´t pay with Paypal without having a credit card.

Hello there. I have just added my bank account to Paypal so I can buy online. I already bought once. I succesfully bought an app from magazin play that cost 1 euro. 

The problem is I try to buy a game from steam and I need a credit card for it. Instead of Paypal popping up like that last time saying "confirm your payment bla bla bla" now it says "Please add a credit/credit card". I CAN´t! 😞 I don´t have one. Heck, this is the reason I even made a Paypal account, in order to pay with it instead of paying with a credit card. 

The problem happens on g2a too. The game is 9 dollars. 

This is so annoying because I can´t recharge my Paypal using my bank account. It gives me a strange error

-------------------------------------

topupBody.payeeName

 

topupBody.payeeBankName

 

(A strange number that I don´t feel safe to show here. I think is my bank account) 

 

 DEUTDEDBPAL

-----------------------------------------------------

And below I have the typical blue response box but it contains no text. 

 

The bank account was accepted long ago. 

 

Why does it happen and how can I solve this problem? Thank you! 🙂

You can use funds in your paypal balance as long as they are in the correct currency and not pending.

But for some transactions ie digital / virtual or higher risk and at some point anyway Paypal will ask you to add a card to act as a back up funding source and to verify your Paypal account.

I also have this issue that I can't recharge my PayPal account using my bank account.

In the past I used this method of recharging my account quite a lot and never had an issue. (Bank account is added to PayPal)

Here is a screenshot of the issue:

To me it looks like a bug in the PayPal web interface.

 

How can the problem be solved?

I have the same error.
I can not "add funds". I get error message "topupBody.payeeName
topupBody.payeeBankName"
...
And one blue field without any text.

Paypall do not answer to my message about this error. It is terrible.

Try changing Paypal language to English.
