I had the same issue trying to use my bank as a funding source for making payments. Used my credit card instead and it worked perfectly. I previously used my bank account for a different payment and that went through fine (although admittedly it was stuck in Pending for nearly a week first, and originally failed when I attempted to use my credit card, which is why I even switched to using my bank in the first place). This is the first time in several years of using PayPal that I've had such frequent and long-lasting issues with making payments.

 

Is it an international transaction? No

What country are you in? USA

What funding sources do you have linked to your paypal account? Bank, Credit Card

What funding source are you trying to use? Bank

Are all your funding sources confirmed? Yes

Is your email address confirmed? Yes

Is this a recent problem or are you a new user? Recent problem, not a new user

 

EDIT: Just to add, I have been using both bank and credit card funding sources without serious issues for years now, so it's probably not a problem with my bank.

You can't have your funding sources 'confirmed' if you have no funding sources added.

Paypal won't let you use funds in your paypal account 'balance' until you have verified that account with a back up debit or credit card.

Hi everybody, 

 

Thanks for stopping by the PayPal Community. We know it can be super frustrating to run into issues at checkout or to see error messages when using Send Money. 

 

Payment issues can happen for a variety of reasons, and without being able to look into the specifics of each individual transaction, it's difficult to determine what could be the root cause of the errors. 

 

We would recommend reviewing these common payment issues and troubleshooting tips to try to resolve the payment errors. If the suggestions given don't alleviate the problem, you may want to reach out to customer support for further investigation. Customer support can be reached by clicking "Help & Contact" on the PayPal website, @AskPayPal on Twitter or the PayPal Facebook page.
