I have almost $250 in my paypal account and i entered my visa debit card information then also it got rejected. I dont know what is wrong with Paypal right from day one nothing went right for both of us. The same debit card was accepted by money bookers. Also it gave me third notice i guess i have to kiss my money good bye. My hard earned money. What should i do any advice please help me out. I gave my 16 digit card number and also 3 digit CVV number back of the card and i have balance in my account for the verification purpose. Any suggestions please help me out my bankers say that my card is active.

I don't think Paypal accepts debit cards, it only accept credit cards from the account holder. Debit cards are available with everyone these days, but credit card helps identity of a person. Its like bank account can be opened by anyone, but Loans are given to only a few trusted few (by way of thorough verification).

Hi there, Thank you for your valuable information. Paypal accepts debit card but due to regulatory rules back in India there is some problem with debit cards.

i don't know what happens with your paypal account... i never have any problem in activating my account over there... i also have quite a bit of money over there even though it is not as much as yours... but money is money and i think you have to contact them about your money to make sure that you will get your money... take care and have a nice day...

You should try contacting paypal and ask them whats wrong, and maybe a banker can help you out? They should be trusted enough and i believe someone of them can help you setup your debit card with paypal. I havn't had this problem and my visa works just fine with paypal, but I think your best bet is to contact paypal, preferably by phone, as it is the fastest way.

Check your bank statement and type in the information for your debit card exactly as it appears on your bank statement. The systems that PayPal and many other companies use, will reject a card for minor errors, such as using abbreviations when your bank does not have that abbreviation on file. Example: 123 Tenth Street If you type it as 123 10th St, but your bank has it on file as the example shows, it will be rejected. If this does not correct the issue, contact PayPal directly or utilize a friend or family member who's account is verified to get your money. Be sure it is someone you trust! Send the money to them, have them withdraw to their bank account and give the money to you. Hope this helps!

Have you contacted Paypal about this? Because it seems like they would be able to give you the best advice on this situation. $250 is a lot of money I'd be very upset to lose that!
