Putting this in the Parlor because I don't know where it fits. Last week I sold a razor on BST. The money was deposited in my Paypal account. I went to transfer the balance to my bank account. Instead, PayPal told me I had the option of having them send me a check. The check would take 2 weeks and cost me a $1.50 fee. Or, I could request a debit card from PayPal and the card would have my credit on it. I no longer see the option to have my money sent right to my account. Am I reading this wrong? Or is this now how we have to get our money?

Interesting.

In my PP account the bank transfer options are still there. Free for a 1-2 day transfer. For .$25 fee, I can do an "instant" transfer.

This is news to me - I have a credit card linked to my PayPal, and any money given to me are deposited directly on the card.

Or at least... that is how it used to be. It's been a while since I got money TO my PayPal, usually it's only FROM Tongue

I have sold a couple of items over this weekend and both payments made to my PayPal account. In each case, I have transferred the balance to my UK bank account, as always. Nothing has changed here.

Perhaps just re-link your bank account or card. As I recall, the process is minor and quick as paypal does an extremely tiny payment authorization (1$ or less) which is later cancelled. Checked my account, still see the bank transfer option.

I just checked The option to transfer to my bank account and to their debit card are both there. Two days ago it just had the debit card and check options. Guess it was a computer glitch. Sorry for alarming everyone

I found out that some banks do not allow funds transferred from Paypal linked to a debit card.

I've had no problems making purchases with paypal with a debit card until last week. My purchase was put on a 72 hr. hold. No explanation on why. After 72 hrs. the hold was released.

I looked around some sights, this is becoming a problem with some shoppers..... Huh

Paypal has had issues with money laundering and has changed a bunch of rules to combat this. I noticed in my business account I could no longer transfer money from my debit card PayPal account to my business account, so I contacted them and added a CC to my personal account and all was right as rain after that.
