It does not give me the option to generate a bar code on my PayPal Business account. When I click on add money it only gives me the choice to transfer money from a bank account. Can you not use PayPal Cash on a business account?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I understand the issues with PayPal Cash are frustrating, and we appreciate your feedback regarding this.

Hey everyone. So about an hour ago, I was trying to add money to my PayPal account by using the "Pay at Store" option but every time I tried to use it, it kept encountering a problem and would tell me to refresh and try again. I did this a few times and I kept getting the "encountered an error. please try again." Is anyone else having this problem as well? Maybe there is something going on that I'm not aware of? If anyone could help, I would really appreciate it.
I spoke with Paypal Customer Service and they said this is a known issue that their technical team is aware of and working on. They said to try it again anywhere from 24-72 hours.
They told me the same thing, It is now over a month since the so call solution was posted and it is still not working. No way to communicate with them directly just email with promises to fix it, Or detailed explaination on how to do it, which all fail as always.
I have had this problem for WEEKS now.
PayPal CASH worked one time for me, then never again.
Would love for this to be resolved. Did anyone find ANY way to overcome the error? I reinstalled the app, didn't work. I reviewed all of my profile settings/information and nothing has been left out. So that isn't it.
I googled this issue and didn't find much.
It is hilarious that this is marked solved. It is not solved and still not working for many people, works for some according to Paypal. It has been months and all Paypal will say is they are AWARE of the problem and are WORKING on it. I contact them monthly and get the same lame reply. I even spoke to a Paypal engineer who at first claimed it was my account, then my app, then my phone. after all atemps to blame me failed, he admitted it was their problem and they were WORKING on it. The local approved stores, at least my area, tell me it has not worked for anyone in many many months. Solved RIGHT.
I find it very telling that no one from Papal will post or offer a solution on this. I got an email last week or so that said they were still working on it. That is crap I have had this problem for nearly a year now. They could have rewritten the whole web site by now.
I got the same BS answer from Paypal oh just give it 24-72 hours 3 weeks later. Same song and dance. I bet Greendot dropped them from the cash at register program.
