Does your bank allow PayPal?

The new credit union I am trying doesn’t. I tried to run through a $22 PayPal transaction the other day and it was declined even though I had more than enough money in it.

I’m going to stick with my old bank as they will authorize PayPal transactions. I thought I would try this credit union because they let you have your direct deposit check a couple of days earlier. The tellers are pretty nice there too.

Yea I guess that’s one of the perks of going with the big banks maybe? Universality and consistency…idk I’m not a financial expert

I use a credit union, but it’s a pretty big one. I can use PayPal and Venmo. :slightly_smiling_face:

Sorry your credit union wouldn’t let your purchase go through. Maybe sticking with your previous bank is the way to go.

I don’t want my PayPal account linked to my bank account. My PayPal account getting compromised could cause a lot of damage.

PayPal doesn’t have my bank account number, just the debit card number for my account.

It’s owned by PayPal, but it’s meant to be easier to use. So, you can download the Venmo app, and after it’s set up, you can pay other people just by scanning their QR code and entering how much to pay them. Or the other way around, so they can pay you.

Comes in handy if you go to a market or go to a garage sale. Or if you need to pay a friend back, it’s just really simple to pay them back, electronically.

Which allows someone who has compromised your PayPal to drain your bank account by making purchases. My PayPal is tied to a credit card with a $500 limit. That’s the worst damage they can do to me if they get my PayPal login.
