Default Cannot make purchases- been 3 weeks since my funds were released!!

Whenever I try to make a purchase PayPal gives me the "sorry we can't complete your purchase at this time" error message. My funds have been released for almost 3 weeks, I've tried waiting 3 days, then en that didn't work I waited 7 days, still nothing worked. This is so absolutely ridiculous and I don't understand why this is happening?? I cannot even make a purchase for $1.

ive seen this happen on just about all newer accounts, it takes at least 3-5 weeks after money has cleared from pending, it will work eventually, but dont push it just wait it out and try it once every 3-5 days till it works

On new accounts sometimes they do this to ensure people don't run away with the funds

What I do when I get this is I make sure I have a card and phone confirmed on my PP, then I wait for 4 full days after the first denial... then I buy a .99 cent recipe from someone IN THE USA (my country too). Almost always this goes through. I put it in my "cart" and then check out with this as the only thing in the cart.

Then I wait 2 full days, and buy something in hardware type category (this is almost exclusively how I get all my shipping tape) for under $20. Then 2 days after that I can pretty much buy whatever I want.

This isn't fool proof, but I think it helps first the amount, and then the category you buy in. If I get the "can't use this payment method at the moment" type notice, then I start all over with the waiting. The waiting seems to make the most difference, trying over and over has never ever helped once.

Just my 2 cents and my personal experience.
