If you create a paypal account – stick with it - don’t create another one!
Something they don’t tell you, is that you can only registered a bank account 3 times, and then they will lock out that bank account.
This was paypal’s reply when I told them I wasn’t able to register my bank account …
“PayPal is constantly working to eliminate the threat of fraud and to ensure the integrity of our payment network.
In order to increase the security of our customer’s accounts, there is a limit to the number of times that a bank account may be added to different PayPal accounts
If a bank account has been used on 3 previous PayPal accounts, the bank account cannot be registered on another PayPal account. A different bank account will need to be registered”
And deleting the accounts which you registered the bank accounts on, doesn’t help.
So I now have a bank account, which can never be assigned to any paypal account.
