Have you used a new card.

My card expired and the last time i was going to buy something it said e cheque so thought that might have been the problem i have since updated the card but have not bought again so do not know if that was my problem.

E-cheque means its coming from your bank account, if you want to send instant money you need to check that your debit/credit card is the default payment type

Do you have a credit/debit card on file? If not, then you need to have one, as PayPal uses it as a backup guarantee to payments made by Bank Transfer, otherwise, they wait for the money to clear from the bank first before paying the person (which is what the eCheque is).

If you have a card on file, then check that everything in your account is verified.

If everything is verified, then there is a problem somewhere and you should contact PayPal:
