Olivia: I read the post you cited and here are the potential reasons for a declined payment - Security model-What can you do to ‘fix’ this? Not much beyond giving us a call .... Identity validation - not relevant because no one here is traveling - everyone is citing issues using their regular computer. Communication errors - How can I fix that? Please be patient while we get things corrected... Funding source denials - What to do with this?- Before calling anyone, I would recommend checking your PayPal account and making sure that your info is up to date My problem is not a funding source denial but Paypal never sent to the funding request to my CC company. Yes, all my info is up to date and about two weeks ago, all was OK and I was able to buy item via paypal. "The greatest hits of payment denials. Of course there will always the one-off situations that don't quite fit into one of these situations, but the moral of this post, if there is one, is to give us a call if you're having problems" Well, I called and got an automated system that could not help me. Olivia, you still are not helping anyone, by pointing out unhelpful administrator posts. Why dont you post a phone number that all of us can call to get a human being to help us resolve our payment issues instead on "peeing on our backs and calling it rain!"

I have the same problem with my CC on Paypal. I had used it for HUNDREDS of paypal transactions but now I can not. I call my CC company (Discover) and verified that my CC is fine, no holds, no security issues & no communication problems wiht paypal. Discover even verified that Paypal NEVER sent a funding request to them! The Paypal Administrator, Olivia has no clue of the actual problem. She want to blame the CC company or the User to hide the potentially nefarious actions of Paypal to maximize potential profit. Well, if I do not purchase on ebay via paypal > less profit for paypal & ebay. IMHO, Paypal is tired of paying CC fees and they want me to pay via my bank acount to maximize their profit.
