There is no way to change the last name directly. PayPal is very specific about you owning the card since on-line credit card fraud is quite a big problem. Since this information is passed to the bank when purchasing, they do verify each transaction. You could take a chance and load it anyway, and check if it will work that way. Since it's only the last ...

Paypal is likely to be perceived as an indicator that you have a very small business or aren't serious about your business, or else you'd have a real credit card merchant account. You should be aware that Paypal can behave arbitrarily with respect to freezing your funds, closing your account, refunding customers, and generally acting like they can do ...

I won't buy from a site that doesn't have SSL on its own site -- login details, anything that gets passed over should not be in cleartext. There will be some customer information being passed, and it provides me (and many others I know of) with peace of mind.

If the links you are being asked to follow take you to a url different then the normal paypal.com I would be warned that it is most likely fake. In this case what I do anyway just to be safe is I type directly into my url bar the address name, in this case www.paypal.com. You can log in and it should notify you if there are any payments that need to be ...

Unfortunately, CoinPal used to be the way to go until PayPal shut him down. Now, the only ways I found to get BitCoins from PayPal are: BitCoinMarket: Requires a certain level of reputation before you can use PayPal. ExchangeZone->LibertyReserve->MtGox: Confusing, round-about setup and you need to have your account on ExchangeZone verified before you can ...

Without knowing more about your situation, one suggestion is to access PayPal in a browser that's running in private mode (e.g., Incognito - Chrome, Private Browsing - Firefox, etc.). Close your browser when you're done with whatever you're doing, and no one will be able to view your browser history even if you forget to log out.

I have verified mine with just a credit card by following the "Add a credit card" option - just gone in and checked it now. The process involves PayPal charging a nominal small fee to the card, then you enter the code that will appear on your statement. They still would prefer me to add a bank account to the details page (they offer to lift receiving limits ...

I received the same mail, it's certainly spam and I highly recommend not to click on any of the links. I am sure, they will present you a fake log-in screen and voilà, they have your log-in credentials.

It's done in your settings: Profile > My Settings > Security Key > Get Started > Get Security Key You can either pay for a physical token that will display your one-time password (OTP) key, or you can register a mobile phone, the instructions are right there. Note: to register a phone it needs to be able to receive text messages, as that is ...

You actually can't do anything. Just be careful. There are a lot of famous websites all over the internet and a lot more of phishing clones with slightly different domain-name. Maybe I'm wrong but bookmarking correct address seems like safer solution to me. At least, you can't type wrong letter or top-domain.

I think your best course of action is to call them. Here's what their web page says -- note the phone number in the upper right for calling from outside the U.S.:

Paypal will not give you a cash advance against your own credit card. You can pay someone else with your credit card - or you can accept a payment from someone else's credit card - but you can't charge $100 against your own credit card to get a $100 Paypal balance. I think Paypal has pretty low limits on accepting credit card payments for people who aren't ...

All the donation I received through PayPal in the past were using the subjet Notification of donation received Couldn't you use it? Otherwise, you can use the Has the words filter and put the words paypal donation. It's not a bullet proof filter, but it should work in most of the cases.

The costs are absolutely nothing. By allowing PayPal to use your bank account, you are saving PayPal money - they don't have to pay your credit card company a transaction fee. That is the preferred mode of PayPal nowadays and they are doing their best to motivate people to finance their PayPal accounts with their bank accounts. From my point of view, I'd ...

Step 1 register here. Step 2 verify that you are a Business or Premier account. Step 3 Go to Paypal labs click signup. Note that the Paypal labs site seems to not work properly in many browsers. For example, on OS X it seems to only work in Firefox, not in Chrome or Safari. Step 4 Wait 2 days and check status if you'd like on the signup page.

I believe one place that can be found is under Profile -> More Options -> My Preapproved Payments -> Update. There may be places too. Clear as mud, eh?

This setting is available in premier accounts, but not in personal accounts. Click on Profile > My Selling Preferences > Look under Getting paid and managing risk and you'll see the Block Payments link.

Paypal does provide API access to manage this through the Recurring Payments API. The doco has a description of the workflow required, but of particular interest to you would be GetRecurringPaymentsProfileDetails. You could check the profile status or the date of last payment received to see if a payment has been made and act accordingly.

Based on the FAQ, it appears as though that they require you to tie an "existing" PayPal account to an existing Developer account. The alternative is to create a new Developer account, but you would not be able to tie your old one to this.

You haven't reached the first threshold of $25 USD https://www.facebook.com/help/105373712886516. In addition Facebook may charge every few days. The charge will stay on your account until paid I believe if you remove banking information.
