Paypal debit card -issue

12 5
So, I tried applying for one, but I don't have enough information to provide them to process it. I want to cancel the request, but, I waited over a half hour and didn't even get through to a stinking operator!

Any way to cancel the request online somehow... now, they limited my account and I won't be able to transfer the cash from this month's paycheck... and then won't be able to pay my phone bill on time.

Help! I don't have the info they need to resolve those issues in order to receive a debit card, so, I just want to cancel the damn thing. Why does it have to be so difficult?

What does applying for a debit card have to do with being able to transfer money from your account??

Not much we can do, unfortunately :( I would just stay on hold and try to do something to kill time--like stick it on speaker phone and fold clothes or deal hunt ;)

ouch!! .. sorry to hear that .... paypal really does suck...

at this point, I honestly don't think it matters any more whether or not your application for the debit card is withdrawn - the problem now is to remove the limitation from your PayPal account.

What info's are they asking from you that you're not able to provide? You can ask around or google it, people may be able to help you get what they need.

Another option is to get on a different PC, be on a different IP, create a new paypal account... lol

Good luck!

I applied online in about 2 minutes. It came right away in the mail & I've been using it for 2 weeks. It's linked directly to your Paypal account & you can't spend more than is in your Paypal account if that's what you choose. I love it & have never had any trouble with them! In the past I've had to purchase Walmart gift cards with my Paypal earnings other than using the money online in order to use for groceries, gas, etc. This way with the card, I can use it at Home Depot & soon at just about any store I choose.

What information dont you have? You need a checking account, a phone number and an address.

They are asking me for a utility bill, proof of address, and identification card...

I finally got in touch with a representative and am working on taking care of it... I don't want to lose out on my paycheck this month!
