Nice post, Thank you for sharing March 6, 2011 at 6:34 am Thank you for this post. It help s a lot. It made me realize that the importance of simple log-in instructions such as mentioned above, which we sometimes take for granted, just so that we can log on faster. I guess when doing financial transactions online, it pays to carefully read and follow instructions to avoid further inconvenience. BumbleB2na August 31, 2011 at 3:26 pm Thank you for this. Sure makes testing hard. I find the error messages PayPal s payment page gives you when you try and bypass the log in to be really misleading. It makes me wonder if PayPal does not want to give away too many hints when something goes wrong. If you type in an incorrect year it says something along the lines of, card was denied if you try to submit it. But hey, if I enter in a bogus year that is too far in the past or the future to be accepted, I would appreciate a little indicator. Likewise, if I enter in a card number that is attached to a PayPal account, I don t see the harm in showing that in an error message, either.


BumbleB2na August 31, 2011 at 4:57 pm Another thing to consider. Somewhere in the options when setting up a business PayPal account, you can specify that you want to deny VISA or MasterCard. I m not sure if it can be switched manually in the settings. If you phone PayPal support, they should be able to see this and adjust the setting. October 25, 2012 at 5:00 am Hi Heather, Thanks for the info. I have the kind of issue though a bit different. Payapl suddenly deactivated my visa card attached with my paypal account and applied limitation over it. The paypent that my client sent is stick to the paypal account itself and hasn t been sent to the associated bank account. what could be the valid reason of paypal deactivated the active card? All the Suggestions will be appreciated! Kimberlee November 7, 2012 at 4:44 pm Thank you so much for posting. This has been driving me crazy! Nice to finally get the answer, and it just reaffirms why I never use Paypal or Bill Me Later anymore. I ve never had anything but problems. Sher August 17, 2013 at 2:30 am Thank you very much for writing in details.


This helped me a lot. I created a payment button for one of my clients and the client did the same as you have mentioned in the first snapshot. He had an account in PayPal, though he tried making payment directly rather than by logging into the PayPal website. He showed me similar message of payment declined by PayPal for the visa card he had mentioned. After reading your helpful post, I told him to do accordingly and the payment was ungracefully done. Thank you again for making me feel satisfied. August 7, 2014 at 9:41 pm Thank you for the clear explanation. I m trying to solve this kind of Paypal problems with my clients. jacqui August 24, 2014 at 5:57 am Thankyou soo much for your information I have spent days trying to work this out as I wanted to pay for something out of my biz cc. I went into my paypal site and sure enough there were my cc deets. Whew thanks again р RJ September 26, 2014 at 10:48 pm Apparently this is not the case anymore. Someone just used my card number to charge a fraudulent transaction to my credit card using Paypal Guest Checkout, yet this card is assigned to my PayPal account.


Paypal fraud support told me this is an old scam, All a fraudster needs is the card number, 3 digit security code from the back of the card, and the billing address and any charge can be put through using PP Guest Checkout. Honestly I don t care about the convenience of this feature, this is a huge security risk and should be disabled immediately. When you first receive your PayPal Debit MasterCard in the mail, it carries an adhesive sticker warning you to call a toll-free number or go on the PayPal website to activate the card. If you try to use it without activating it first, PayPal can block your transactions to prevent what look like unauthorized charges. The same provisions can apply if you attempt to use the card after its expiration date. Likewise, if you report and subsequently find a misplaced card, you'll be unable to use it until you receive a replacement. Note that if you move and fail to change the address on your PayPal account, the postal service will not forward the envelope that contains your debit card even if you file a forwarding address for mailing purposes.
