Paypal credit issue unable to use

Posted 22nd Sep
Having an issue I wanted to use paypal credit on ebay to buy a oculus quest but everytime I do it gives me some error saying choose a different method

Only thing it could be is the amount as the quests around £350 and my limit is £250 but I thought maybe you could clear the extra straight away or does PayPal credit not work like that

It can't be that it's the ebay sellar that's an issue as even curry's on ebay has the same error

You're exceeding your limit on an automated system and wondering why it got rejected?
Only options I can think of are
1. Put £100 into your PayPal account before you try to buy. Then when you try to buy it will (I believe) ask to use that first, then ask how to take the balance. I don't know if the option to use PayPal credit will come up though.
2. Contact the seller and see if he will take £100 deposit, and invoice you for the balance. Problem there is if he does that and your credit application gets knocked back he's got your money.
3. Contact PayPal. They may be able to arrange it, again with the extra upfront.

Aww shame. Thanks for replying Maybe try the upfront deposit to seller route, with him invoicing you for the balance?
