Use another card or you will have to contact Paypal if you do not control the other account. Perhaps another family member has an account and has used that card?

You can email them your previous email address and explain you concern. That is the only one way to get it fixed,
Once they erase your records then you can add it to this account, else they may give you an option to use the previous account.

Why can't I log into my paypal account?


USUALLY, because you have clicked on a link in a mailing that told you there was some problem with your account. You clicked on the link and a PayPal looking page opened. It asked you to confirm your email and PayPal Password and then told you everything was fine. The bad guys then have your account details and have now changed your password on you.

If you don't remember doing that, Clear Internet History and Cookies. Try and log in again.

I tried to create an account on paypal on around 15 march 2011...but today (20 march 2011) i am trying again to confirm it,,i dont come to know where am i wrong....... it is not working,,i have to buy...


If you have already created the Paypal account then the next thing you have to do is VERIFY it.

Just to be clear, VERIFYING your account is NOT the same as CONFIRMING it.

When you signed up for Paypal they should have sent an email message to your corresponding email account that you listed in the application.

When you open that email, there will be a link and a code to VERIFY your Paypal account. Just follow the instructions in the email message.

Once you VERIFY your account then you can log into the main Paypal website with your email address and password and check out your newly created account.

If you really want to link an actual bank account from your real everyday bank to your Paypal account, then this is where you have to go through the lengthy process of submitting your bank account numbers and bank transit numbers in order to CONFIRM the account.

You actually don't need to CONFIRM the account in order to use it if you don't want to. Many people simply skip the confirmation option and just link their Paypal account to a disposable VISA or MASTERCARD GIFT CARD that you can purchase at pretty much any convenience store.

Just login to your Paypal account (once it is VERIFIED) and go to:

MY ACCOUNT
PROFILE
ADD A CREDIT CARD

Then just fill in the information from the Mastercard Gift card and check that it is listed as your PRIMARY FUNDING SOURCE. Then you will be free to purchase things with your Paypal account as long as there is a sufficient balance left on the Gift Card.

Good luck.

Trying to add credit card to account. Profile says


It sounds like you may have more than one PAYPAL account. You may have opened another PAYPAL account with a different email adderess, or possibly someone else has set up an accoun t with your credit card details. Try logging in to PAYPAL with any other email addresses you have.

here are the PAYPAL guideliens for lost email addresses:

I forgot or I don’t have access to my PayPal email address. What can I do? Question : Answer : I have forgotten my email address

If you do not remember the email address registered on your account, PayPal will need to verify your identity by asking you a few questions. For security reasons, all the information you provide must match your PayPal account in order for us to reveal your email address.

To recover your email address, follow these steps:
  1. Visit the PayPal website at www.paypal.co.uk
  2. Click the ‘email’ link under the ‘Log In’ button
  3. Enter the requested information
  4. Enter the security code by typing the letters and numbers shown then click ’Continue’
  5. Click ‘Submit’
The email address matching the information you provide will appear in the email field on the ‘Account Login’ box. You can then log in to your PayPal account using the corresponding password.

If you have forgotten your password, click the ‘password’ link under the ‘Log In’ button and follow the instructions.


I no longer have access to the email address registered to my PayPal account

Even if you no longer have access to the email address, you must still enter this address to log in to your PayPal account as this is how the PayPal system recognises you. After you log in, you can change the email address then use the new one when you next log in to your account.
If you definitely only have one PAYPAL account, I suggest you go the the PAYPAL Help section and report the problem.
