Why are our PayPal Debit card being declined? We have had the card for years with the same backup funding, my bank. I have called numerous times and I have gotten a different answer each time. I have been told to transfer money to paypal. That is not a good solution since it takes nearly a week to complete the transfer with no guarantee that a transaction will actually go through. I have also been told that I can only have five uncompleted transactions on my account at a time. That too is inconvenient since it takes days for it to clear paypal after it clears my bank. I have been told that the rep is changing the settings on our cards but that doesn't ring true because the cards are still declined. I have a card from my bank so that is not the issue. I just want to understand what changed and why paypal did not inform their customers. Note: The cards are approved about once a week. Prior to this they were approved all the time.

I have had a Paypal MC for almost 10 years. I have never carried a regular paypal balance. It is linked to my bank account. Why then in the last couple of months is my card being declined. I have called Paypal numerous times only to be assured that they are changing the settings and the card will now work. I can usually use my card once or twice then it is declined again. I have another card, but I like using the Paypal card for cash back.
