So, I just tried using my credit card on a paypal guest account thingy to buy my girlfriend a nice and purdy necklace. However, a process that should be simple and easy is now an annoying hassle.
Because long ago, I made a paypal account and linked my current credit card with it. Unfortunately, I have forgotten the password to that account. (ik.. My fault) So my thought process was... "Forgot my password? Let me reset it!" lolnope
I go through the classic email confirmation code process, and then I'm hit with another step to resetting my password. Not only did I have to do the email thing (didn't really mind that), but now I have to answer two security questions. Great, questions I filled out over a year ago.. I'm sure this will go well.
So, can't get the questions right. Big surprise. Personally, security questions are pretty dumb.. If you don't spell/capitalize your answer exactly as the original.. It's wrong. Annoying if you ask me.
So, I can't answer the questions, but look! I can do an automated phone call process. Lets do that! lolnope. The only phone that paypal would call was the one linked to my account. Which since I made the account, I have gotten a new phone and number. Can't do that now either.
I'm really out of options now.. I can't answer my security questions, and I can't do the automated phone call. Literally can't use my credit card with paypal now, without calling them and raging at them. Needless to say, that is exactly what I'm going to do, but I feel like this shoulda been avoided by not having such strict rules on paypal.
Anyone find paypal a hassle??
