Help, I bought a Prepaid Paypal Debit Mastercard, I bought it so I could use my PayPal funds. I activated my card and did everything I was supposed to do. I know I did it correctly because my card was shown in the wallet section. When I went to transfer my money from my PayPal to the card it would not let me.
I don't have a bank account!!!! I put in all the card information but it said: "We linked your card, but your bank doesn’t currently support Instant Transfers.".
I really need help... I am so tired of not even being able to spend MY money, now I wasted even MORE money buying this card and its not even working!!
The PayPal cards bought at stores in the US are temporary cards that can only be used for in store purchases. These cards can not be used for transfers from PayPal into the card account, nor can they be used for online purchases.
You will need to sign up for the permanent PayPal Prepaid card. The card will be mailed to you. When you receive the Prepaid card and activate it, it will be added to your PayPal Wallet. You will then be able to link the card account to your PayPal account and transfer funds into the card account.
PayPal does also offer the Cash debit card. This card would be directly linked to your available PayPal account balance (no transfers necessary). The Cash debit card is no cost and there are no monthly fees. When you sign up for the Cash debit card PayPal will enable direct deposit account and routing numbers in your account.
Here is a PayPal link for the Cash debit card. This card is a different product than the Prepaid card.
If you need to get funds into your PayPal account to fund the PayPal Cash debit card, you can do so with PayPal Cash loading at a retailer. I'll link details on this service.
Here is a the PayPal Prepaid card link. Keep in mind that the Prepaid card doesn't have an EMV chip. If you're traveling outside the US—not having an EMV enabled card may be an issue.
PayPal account transfers are sent and received from email address to email address or to a mobile number.
PayPal accounts in South Africa can withdraw and top up their account balances for purchases through FNB. If you don't have an FNB account, select register for PayPal for non FNB customers on the FNB website.

I sold a tractor on Ebay yesterday. Buyer paid in full through PP. Contacted buyer who came and inspected tractor to his satisfaction. Buyer is shipping tractor to Africa and requested title for tractor. My state (and most states to my knowledge) do not issue a title for a farm tractor. Buyer states he will not be able to import tractor without a title. My question: If buyer used a credit card to pay for tractor, and PP processed the transaction, if the buyer institutes a charge back with his CC company will PP attempt to retrieve funds from my bank account or CC?
Is this a scam?
Emails from PayPal will address you by your first and last name or business name. Always go to the website directly (not through links in an email) and log in and check if you have any notices or transactions in your account.

I've sent money to a contact under friends and family. However, i got one letter wrong in the email address and sent the payment. It's status is still pending but the funds have left my account. How do I cancel this so that I can amend and send to the right one?
So I almost sent the wrong payment to the wrong email. Good thing I was able to check the email properly and that their was a refund button.
So when I pressed it, I got the refund. I also saw in my summary that I was refunded. But when I checked my PayMaya account, I wasn't refunded.
Now my question is, does it take a few business days for my refund to actually appear on my PayMaya account?
Thanks a bunch in advance guys!
Gosh you were lucky, if that mis-spelled email address was valid to another person you 'may' have lost your money !!
Luckily you could cancel, so when you cancel a payment those funds can't do a u-turn > they have to process through to paypal who will then either return them to your funding source (if you paid with a debit or credit card), or credit your paypal balance (if it was funded from your balance or instant bank transfer), but that takes a few days and sometimes up to a week.
I recently got a new phone number and I want to change it but I can‘t, neither on the phone and neither on desktop. What can I do?
From the following PayPal link in a desktop browser; add your new phone number as "Mobile" from the drop down box and tick the box that says "Make this my primary phone".
Remove your old number.

I have an issue.
When I try to make a purchase from an external website using PayPal, it requests me to add a credit/debit card before I can purchase anything. But I already have one linked to my account. Why does it do this and is there any way to fix it?
I have sufficient money in my balance to make the purchase, but not all the money I have is USD (which is why a bit of other currency is needed)
Needing to incorporate current precious metal market quotes into paypal (buy it now) button.
current silver price per Kitco.com
silver $15.92 x 1.2 = $19.10
Here are websites with coins prices changing by minute with precious metal current quote: (Don't know if this is possible with Paypal)
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
I wanted to give you some additional information in case you were not aware; dealing in precious metals is something that PayPal would need to approve.
As for a live price incorporated into a buy now button, this may be possible through a third party offering the live feed.
