    Default paypal trouble

    every time i try to send money it says i cant because im going over the spending limit (somwhere around 2000 dollars if your not verified, which im not), the only trouble is, im only sending 211 dollars, and thats WELL under the limit. Yet everytime i hit continue, it says i cant. Anybody know what is going on?

    I made a transaction a month ago and it went smoothly.

    that is a "lifetime" limit... you must become verified to continue to use paypal. it is there way of makeing sure that only very casual users do not verify. just link a real banking account and off you go... takes 2 seconds and nothing changes.

    yes, but the pain is, I think your bank account will be your primary, so you always have to pick a secondary pay method... kind of a pain, but I have been using a verified account fot years with no problems

    Yes, use the plastic but after you have set up your verified account, you have the option of changing your settings to make your CC you primary method of payment. That way you do not have to specify the method of payment each time you make a purchase.

    My buddy lost 625 dollars on that paypal just recently. The people who he was trading with sent the money back, and he sent them back the item. Only thing, he's not getting the money back. He says paypal is "investigating" the conflict.
    Respects.

    yea. I only use it for big purchases on very rare occasions. musical instruments off ebay and such. I use it mostly to accept donations for a game server I host for soldier of fortune II. makes it very easy for my teammates to pay and then I pay the bill right from my paypal account. never even makes to my bank account
