    check you bank card hasnt expired thats usually the problem if paypal cant grab money via visa mastercard then it uses backup direct debit hence the waiting time so it makes an echeque

    hope this helps else phone them its on paypal web site just need to dig abit

    It will use echeque if your account is only linked to your bank account you need to register a debit/credit card even if from the same bank account then it can make a card transaction rather than a lengthy bank transfer

    When I pay via my bank account rather than oh's debit card it pays the recipient straight away but comes out of my account 4-6 days later as a direct debit not E-cheque??:thinking:

    This happened to me a while ago. For no obvious reason the only option for paying through paypal was by echeque. My card wasn't about to expire, I had a bank account and a debit card registered. I sent them numerous emails and got no reply. So in the end I transfered my money out of my paypal account into my bank, and added another bank account and debit card just to see if that helped. A few days later it was back to normal, I still don't know why it happened, really annoying though as it took about a week for the echeques to clear and I had bought loads of things from ebay.

    if you find that it is your card and seller being a pay in butt ask em to cancel echeque then repay them after youve done you card and thats them sorted the only problem then will be the echeque will still pay but it will go into your paypal account sound bent but thats paypal they paranoid you out to do em ..but they just to think and lazy to tell you your card expired

    have a look at your account again all the best

    If there is no card option they wait until they have recieved the bank transfer before paying on to the recipient if you have a card registered weather you use it or not it will send straightaway as they can check the card is valid immeadiatley but have to wait for the transfer to confirm the bank is valid. It's just a security measure to make sure they get their money.
    Similar to mobile phone companies taking your credit card details but using your bank for the payments.
