Paypal and linking credit card

Not new to ebay by any stretch of imagination. SO this may be one for more experienced users

Sorry for rant!!

A few weeks ago I log into paypal to receive a message saying I am reaching my 1600 pound legal limit (to prevent fraud apparently) and i need to verify all my details. I verify my bank account, address and telephone number. The credit card I had registered is expired and no longer in use BUT they told me to return my account to full working order I need to register one. I now only have a prepay one. so i register that!

I then go to enter the 4 digits (the amounts they charge to you card to verify it) BUT i forgot as its prepay the card ADD 2.5% onto the transaction so i have no way of know exactly how much paypal has charged(i tried roundign the number up and down no use) so the card gets rejected. No big deal so I thought.

BUT apparently to get instant transfer of funds from bank you HAVE to have a credit card linked. Is this correct? I told them I cant possibly get the 4 digit amount because of the 2.5 charge....they DON't seem to get this. DO i need to have the card linked to use instant transfer? they say I do but I am sure when I had my basic account this was not true! help!

hi nelix
I had the same problem with mine and they actually sent me a code thru the post which you could type in. I took a couple of weeks to come becuase it came from America. Might be worth a look if you're having trouble!
