debit card doesnt work, i had tried but it was not accepted, but still you can try, the code is the last 3 digits given at the back of your card. If it gets accepted then good or else you will have to make credit card.

You can only verify your debit card only if you have a visa or a master card. You need to enter your secret pin code in place of cvv code. paypal will charge you 1.95$ for this which will be credited back once your account is verified. Hope this solves your problem.

you are from india then you will face certain problems because indian banking system is not so good. Enter your PIN number there which you use at ATM but make sure that you don't have much amount of money in that account because I really don't trust paypal.

Who says that Indian banking is not good. after this big fiasco of American and foreign banks you are proud that your banking system is verygood. There are more then 25 Banks get Bankrupt & many banks require bail out packages to maintain. In India still no banks got bankrupt

which bank card do u have and whether it is master or visa or a simple local ATM card, you need to talk to your bankers, which will help you the most.

I too had trouble verifying my paypal when I first set up my account. I can confirm you can set up and link your debit card to your paypal account but in order to do this you not only have to supply your card number to paypal...you also have to verify your card. You can do this by checking your bank statement. You normally find once you have supplied Paypal with the details of your card they will charge you a small fee which will then be visible on your statement. In the details section of the statement it should include a four digit pin number...it is this number which you should enter online into the necessary box. It's all very straight forward once you've done it once. If you do your banking online you could save some time and even access it on there gaining your pin number sooner. As soon as you've completed this your paypal should be verified.

What I did was to follow the steps to verify it and the day after I called the customer service of my credit card to find if they have the code and the give it to me. may be you can try with that.
