Some merchants may have blocked payments that are eChecks and prefer bank payments when it is backed up by credit or debit card aka instant bank transfer which PayPal fronts the money ahead to the seller immediately and wait for your bank payment to clear.

 

So your option is to add a card as back up when sending bank payment. Or try a different merchant who may not have blocked eChecks.

 

When you have a bank and card linked to your PayPal account, PayPal can make these instant bank transfer payments except in instances such as the card is expired.


Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂
