PayPal is blocking me from using my debit card
Buying stuff on ebay used to be OK. having credit card transactions “processed” by paypal and declining their offer of an account was a nuisance but then last year I foolishly acceded and opened a paypal account. Today for the first time since then I tried to make a purchase on ebay. “the card you have entered cannot be used, try another card”. apparently I had to do something called “confirm card” via paypal.com. I tried that…. “your last action cannot be completed”. repeatedly. I unlink the card, try linking my bank account, (God I wish i hadn’t given them my bank account number !!!!). Nothing. Finally I tried closing the account, hoping that my card might work on ebay as it had before I joined PP. nope. “closing” a pp account only closes my access to it. pp continues to use all the information I’ve given them to block my cards. So I finally find the pp contact button and send an email – get back a pointless corpspeak email about how great they are. How the hell is this outfit allowed to operate???
