I tried that a few times earlier on my own and it didn't work. That's when I posted the problem.
But I just went back in to try it again, and this time it worked. The bank account is now confirmed.
Thanks for helping ...
I was having the same problem. I just downloaded the app on my phone and was able to enter those two small deposits.
Is your bank account linked?
Is your bank account confirmed?
Have you had any failed transfers or neg balances?
Why do you want to add funds? You do know that you don't need to as a buyer don't you?
If none of that helps then do as they say and give customer services a call.
Which is your correct name used on your birth certificate, ID, bank account and other legal documents?
If your credit card name is incorrect, then get it changed.
If you want to correct errors on you PayPal account you will need to phone PayPal to do that.
I think you need to phone PayPal support to fix this. It would be hard to to with documentation submitted. All documentation including anything to show you live at your current address must match.
You would probably become non-verified again but if you had a card added as a funding source you may be able to use that.
If you funded paypal payments via bank account and not a card then any refunds would clear through to your paypal balance so that would be ok.
Obviously, those old instructions are no longer valid.
It took me a long time to get it work. I have not idea what changed. I tried so many times and there was no option to select an image to upload. Then, several weeks ago and, like magic, there was an option to select a local image.
I just checked again and, sadly, the option isn't there anymore--just the community option. I tried chrome and Firefox on Win XP and Win 10--2 separate computers. I think it changed when they recently changed the entire community interface.
I posted this issue a couple months ago and no one offered a solution.
The avatar used to be rectangle and I designed my avatar/logo for that. Changing to a circle doesn't work so well.
Hopefully, someone else gives current details on where to find the upload option.
Really much later breaking news!
It works! I can seect my balance! And my balance is proposed for a purchase!
They fixed it! Thank you, PayPal! You said you would and you did!
Late breaking news...
In a recent message, PayPal have clarified the issue:
From: Chris PayPal Customer Solutions Support Specialist PayPal we are working on rolling out the functionality to have your PayPal balance set as your preferred payment and hope to have that implemented before the end of the year.
All is forgiven.
This is a community help forum and its mainly ''user to user'' advice.
Scroll to the bottom of any paypal page and click on CONTACT to phone customer services.
Because you probably left it on your auctions >>
Go and find the transaction in your “my ebay” > click to the right where it says sell similar > don't fill in anything just scroll down to the payments section > look in the paypal box > is the email addy in there correct with no spelling mistakes? If so then it would have been wrong on your finished auctions so come back for more advice.
