CAN'T LINK PAYPAL ACCOUNT TO SOUTH AFRICAN FNB PROFILE

I am tearing my hair out and have spent hours on this problem.   I cannot link my FNB account to my Paypal account as it keeps telling me my Paypal account is not verified.  There is nowhere in the Paypal website that tells me what to do to verify the account.  Any suggestions please?

Normally you can verify by adding and confirming a credit card to your SA account and then..........


To link your PayPal account to your ETF account, follow these steps:

Log in to your FNB account at www.fnb.co.za.
Click on PayPal Services and then on Link PayPal Profile.
Follow the instructions to link your accounts. You will need to sign in to your PayPal account to confirm that you are the account holder.

After linking your PayPal account to your ETF account, follow these steps to transfer funds to your ETF bank account from your PayPal account:

Log in to your FNB account at www.fnb.co.za.
Click on PayPal Services and then on Withdraw from PayPal.
Enter the transfer amount in USD dollars. (Please check that your PayPal balance is sufficient to make the transfer.)
Follow the instructions to confirm the exchange rate, the Rand amount you will receive, and the Transaction Terms and Conditions.
You will be directed to PayPal to sign in and verify the amount you are transferring to your ETF account.
Then you will be redirected to the FNB site. Your funds will be transferred to your bank account within 3 to 6 business days.

Mine is not linked even after registering on the FNB profile. The card is showing on my PayPal account, but nothing from FNB

Apparently FNB's paypal services are currently unavailable. I have been struggling with the same issue. They said it would be resolved shortly, but it's been a while.

The same thing happened to me, so when did the Paypal services become unavailable on their website?😞😞😞 After three long weeks trying to struggling with registering for an online banking profile when a breakthrough finally happens there is another wall blocking.
