Having setup a new premiere Paypal account and linked and verified my bank account to it I thought I could start purchases on line? Wrong! On trying to make payment paypal asks for credit card details.??

Sent them an email yesterday no response yet. Anyone had this problem before ?

Thanx

I had this problem only when I exceeded £7500 received within a 6 month timeframe.

What they deemed to be "suspicious activity".

Since completing that, I've not had a problem with any limitations m8

you need to wait a week pay pal put 2 low sums of money into your account usualy 17 pence and 64 pence etc but under a quid you then verify these amounts by logging into pay pal then you can instant transfer

ive heard loads a stories about people being hacked through pay pal but to be honest ive never had a problem once bank funding was set up

Thanks to all who replied. Rang them up (believe me it's a mission going past automated crap!) and found out the problem.

Even though my bank account has been correctly setup i still need to specify a credit or debit card. This is essential for instant payments when shopping online. Wish this was clearly stated in the mud!

Hope this helps someone.
