anyone else having problems with paypal?

7 replies 5710 views Edited Jan 23, 2013

i bought 25 dollars to my account using paypal, the money was taken from the bank instantly and more that 24 hours later I still haven't recieved the money on my wallet. I've seen a few posts about this but no actual responses.

 

anyone else is having this problem? did it got solved? I really need help with this, the phone for costumer suport in my country is not working, im from Chile.

 

I have an american account, and payed with a Chilean master card through paypal, the transfer was done successfully, since paypal acts like a middle man there shouldnt be any problems with the origin of the master card.

 

Any info on how to solve this, time frames in wich this transactions usually work or anything, would be greatly apreciated.

 

Thanks

Same problem here. Tried to transfer $5 from paypal into my US PSN account to test.

 

Paypal says that the money has not yet been taken by Sony, but the transfer of $5 is still pending.

 

Would love to transfer some good money to my PSN wallet and buy some games!

 

People want to buy games and Sony doesn't want our money!!!!!!!

If your banking account has yet to be verified by paypal it can take up to 7 days to clear.

Same here...

I'm considering to make a request to paypal and take my money back.

this is terrible... it supposed to add money to my wallet instantly. it's 2013 and everything should be done by automatically.

Hey there! Just wanted to let you know that US PSN accounts require US PayPal accounts to fill them, which explains why you are having problems. Filling a US PSN account with PayPal funds from another country, in your case, Chile, will not work.

I've got the same thing. 

 

I always used my US PSN Account and now, when I got the brillant idea to add funds by Paypal, then got a bank statment that I paid to Paypal, and nothing happens in my Sony account.

 

I'm really frustrated with Sony with this issue, I paid with Paypal and it's not clearly adviced that I couldn't add funds to my US account. 

So if this payment really happens on the next credit card bill making me lose time to get my money back,  I'll sell my PS4, buy an XBOX and Sony will lose a costumer since the PS1 era!  This is a shame!
