Paypal - Won't let me use my credit card?

  1. Girls I'm panicking. I just won a beautiful LV Riberia but Paypal won't let me use my credit card. Has anyone else had this problem? I want the bag and I have the funds to pay for it but I don't want to use my checking account to fund the purchase, I want to use the credit card attached to my paypal like I always do!!! I have never had this problem! Help! :crybaby:
  2. Hi Alea84. I've never had this problem - are you sure that all the information is correctly entered? When I go to pay, I have to manually change the funds from checking account to my credit card - I'm guessing that this is where your problem is happenning.

    You're doing the right thing wanting to pay via credit card though - you'd have a lot less come back via bank funds if something goes wrong.
  3. Well, I go to the paypal screen and hit payment options to select my card like I always do and this comes up on the top of the screen:
  4. Have you been on eBay for a while?
    Have you purchased something for this higher amount?

    When I first started buying on eBay, I had a paypal limit.
    Check your paypal account fine print.
  5. Maybe the seller does not accept CC paiements ? Ask him/her
  6. I thought this also but on the payment options it had paypal with the credit cards displayed below. I'm so confused.
  7. I would call PayPal and ask them what's going on.
  8. def call paypal.
    are you sure you are logged into the paypal site, and not a fake paypal site?
  9. I've contacted paypal... my husband bought something over this amount and didn't have a problem with spending limits. Thank you all for your help. I really appreciate it.

  10. My early problem was a dollar limit within a certain time frame if I recall.
    Something like 1500 every 30 days. Whatever it was rediculious.
    After a few months it changed to unlimited. Ought Oh.
  11. This happened to someone who was trying to paypal me ... she called paypal and they didn't know what the problem was! :shrugs: She ended up paying a different way.
  12. Well I can't get any help with this. Other than this generic message saying that they review each transaction individually and do not reverse decisions and that if the block a payment it's because it was safer for me. I'm so mad/upset right now and I'm not sure what to do.
  13. I know that some cc companys had problems with paypal and some people had to wait a day or two to make payment, but the error message would be different. Yours I've never seen before. Probably the seller only accepts pp funds? Ask both pp and your seller. Good luck!
  14. The seller may have a type of account that can't accept CC. If that's the case, then call Paypal, don't email them. You'll be able to get a live person to help you.
  15. If a seller accepts PayPal they have to accept ALL forms of payments thru PayPal, they cant say no CC payments.

    I would call PP right away.
