My Mastercard keeps being declined unless I have cleared funds in my paypal account. Its almost as if PayPal doesnt trust the underlying payment method which was a bank account.
I have found a workaround, I would need to pay a merchant that uses paypal (say skybet). This is then debited from a normal Bank Debit Card/Direct Debit. Then withdraw the funds back to paypal. This adds cleared funds and then I can use the Paypal debit card.
It only started declining last week. Was perfectly fine before.
