Adding a Bank Acc to Paypal - Anyone had this before?

    We just opened a savings account now we have surplus income each month, I decided to add the bank account to the paypal account so we could withdraw funds into the account...

    thing is, it's an Abbey account, and they've given us a generic account number (000500005) and told us to give this and then out customer Ref.

    apparently it's like a holding tank in one giant accoutn and ref's are the actual account info (X13524XXXMAP)

    but paypal does not give me an option for a Ref, when I try just the sort and acc it tells me it's already been registered with another paypal account...

    anyone know what to do?



    you cannot use a savings account with paypal

    It's true.
    You'll have to register your current account and put funds into this first then transfer to your savings

    Well i have my savings account linked to my paypal account and have for a few years so i dont believe that its not possible


    most savings accounts do not allow direct debits setup against them. Obviously yours does but the OP's one does not.
