I'm unable to receive funds using paypal

When someone tries to send me money through paypal he gets a payment failed as result of this error:
"Your recipient is not able to receive funds at this time. Your recipient must first set up his or her account to receive funds."

My account is properly set up and I have confirmed my card, what else can I do to receive the money?

Sorry, you need a Visa credit card linked in order to receive money to your PayPal account. You can buy online and send money for goods and services with your MasterCard though.


Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂

Did you link and confirm a Visa card? Egypt has automatic transfer requirement of PayPal balance only to Visa card, monthly, so can't receive payment until you do this.

It's a MasterCard card as I don't have a visa card
