Linking a card to PayPal, ugh the frustrations.

I recently switched to a different bank card, and therefor have to go through linking my card to my PayPal account. I have tried three or four times thus far today and every time I do, it gives me an error reading "unable to complete, please try again later". Very very frustrating.

All I want to do is link my card/bank account so that I can spend the balance of cash earned in my PayPal account when I am out shopping, instead of having to spend cash. That way my PayPal money gets used for items I need as well as items I just want.

Ugh, that's my little technology rant for the morning. Hopefully it decided to cooperate at some point today. Haha.

Happy writing.

As great as technology is to make things easier, it is often the setting it up that is most difficult!

It can definitely be frustrating to have to deal with. I enjoy how technology does make some things easier, but I don't like the frustration that goes with it.

I finally got it linked enough so that I could use my PayPal balance to pay for my photo orders today, but it took awhile.

I hate those error messages. Especially on a site like PayPal. Although I had my bank account linked a long time ago. I would dread having to do it again if I ever switch banks.

I have a card that I never use except for PayPal and I only use PayPal for things related to my writing and publishing.

I have a card with which I can directly spend my PayPal balance. It's the PayPal debit card and it's a wonderful thing they no longer offer.
