Hello @sharpiemarker , Thanks for the quick response. I've read the article, so there is no way of me keeping that balance on Paypal? If i understood it right I'll have to withdraw it to a bank account (and it says a US bank account, not my countries bank account-rather mine). It didn't say anything about purchasing online but I'm assuming that's the case aswell that I can't spend it (example on eBay)? And the balance can only be used if you have an US paypal account (without withdrawing it - actually spending it or sending it to someone)?

Hello friends, I've been using paypal for years now, but I've been having trouble with paypal balance. The situation is - my friend wants to send me some money on paypal - which will go to my paypal balance, now I've been googling and seeing people having trouble spending that actual balance. I tried setting up my preferred method of paying online as 'paypal balance' but I get an error saying: "This can't be used as your preferred way to pay online. Choose a different payment method." - now I don't know if that's because I don't have any money in paypal balance or something else. I'm from Bosnia and Herzegovina and I wanted to clear that up before I receive any money. I usually use paypal for ebay purchases and so on, so I wanted to ask if anyone can help me with my situation. If I receive money, will I be able to spend my paypal balance (for example on eBay), because when checking out on eBay it doesn't show any other option than my credit card which is attached to it (no pp balance - perhaps because I have none?), and will I be able to send that money to someone if need be - so it doesn't take the money from my linked card, but from the balance. If anyone can help I would be really thankful, cheers.
