Default Paypal not letting me add a bank account

Just trying to set up my Ebay UK selling account.

This will be my second attempt at a home made stealth account.

I opened the paypal and the ebay Account well over a month ago.

Today I listed a low value used item on a seven day auction.

Then added a VCC which I bought on ebay to the paypal account "add a card" tab.

Then when I went to add the bank account it just gave me a message saying:

"We're sorry, we're not able to process your request right now. Please try again later."

Now it is later.. and im still getting the same message when I try to add a bank account. Can anyone help?

Phone up Paypal on an unknown number, make sure you have your unique code from the Paypal 'contact us' page ready.

When it asks what you're calling about, say 'adding a bank account' and the automated service will let you add it that way by asking for the account number and sort code.

I've had to do this method so many times and it's worked every single time (providing the account isn't on another Paypal already...)

If the bank account was made the same day then you get an error, but adding it the next day is ok

the bank account was made the same day as the Ebay and Paypal accounts but not added until today, which is well over a month later.

Don’t use Lloyd’s in the future . They don’t like mismatching names

I've used RBS, Nationwide & co-op.

However, co-op are the slowest for transfers showing up imo.

I would use Barclays too if they would approve my join applications!
