Unfortunately as this is a public community, it's not possible to look at user info to see what may be going on.   Assuming you have a US PayPal account (just guessing), here are some common issues you might encounter when linking a bank account:
* The bank account must be a U.S. bank.
* The bank account can’t be linked to more than one account at a time.
* The bank account can't be linked if it has already been linked to 3 previous PayPal accounts.
* The name on the bank account must match the name on the PayPal account.

 

PayPal can confirm accounts from most banks and credit unions.  Unfortunately, there are some banks that are not compatible with PayPal, including most online only or prepaid bank accounts.  If you receive the message "Check and Try again," you may have typed the wrong number, or PayPal may not accept your bank.

Hi sorry I'm new to this I'm actually in the UK? And unfortunately none of the things you posted are the issue as it hasn't been used for another PayPal I have definitely typed the details right its just obviously a problem with the PayPal site because its saying we are unable to add bank account at this time please try again later? But it has been saying that all day I've tried at least 5 times now? My name matches etc? Thank you for replying to me though?

I'm having the same problem. I'm in Estonia and can't link my account. It keeps saying to try again later.

well, this might be applicable if the system was working, but there is a problem with paypal not the bank or the information that was entered, or anything else. I've been trying to set up an account for a relative for 10 days without success. Paypal, why can't you admit you have a problem instead of stringing people along? I've been an eBay seller for many years and have always relied on Paypal (monopoly) to assist in the transactions. Hope to find another resource for this.

 

Get it fixed, please
