Re: This can’t be used as your preferred way to pay online. Choose a different payment method. Confi

The problem still not solved, I opened my account from Egypt then I moved to Spain and already added a Spanish debit card which confirmed today but it's a useless try. I thought, like some of the people mentioned, that the problem is related to Egyptian Cards..but it's not.

I still can't pay using my PayPal balance and this problem is annoying me very much. So, please help with any valuable info instead of adding "not exist" Links @PayPal_Rich

well actually i looked into it and it looks like PayPal can't do much about this, the country often times don't allow it, that's what I read for my country i'm in India, it said that you can pay through credit card only, so that's why I can't change it and it's probably something similar for the rest of people as well.

So basically, the only possible workaround for this absolute nonsense is withdrawing PayPal balance into your card or whatever and THEN paying with the card. Not only is it absolutely ridiculous you'd have to do such thing, there's also a pretty hefty fee for withdrawing, at least for me. I love the logic here, it's stunning. "We'll ALWAYS use your PP balance first". In all these years, not a single time has my balance been used, no matter if there was enough for the transaction or not.

@Moamen01 @arvisito 

I couldn't agree more.

My balance hasn't been used a single time, even though there is a balance and it's more than enough for the payment.

@PayPal_Rich, the level of support you are providing is a joke.

  1. Try this link: https://www.paypal.com/us/smarthelp/article/faq3959  I tried it, and it does work, but I just don't see where the "Collect Your Money" link is, but I don't have a balance at the moment either. I have started a transfer from my bank to add money, and then see if it shows that link.

Let me know if this works for you please.

I had the same issue, only it was for a credit card. Looked at all cards, found it was not confirmed, followed the confirm procedure, tried again and it worked! Credit card is now my preferred payment source!
