Default "genericError" when trying to transfer money

I have a credit card, and a bank account confirmed, but when I'm trying to transfer I keep getting the error "genericError". Any idea what this might be? I also can't chose an account type under "Transfer to" even though my bank account is the default option.

Maybe a temp glitch on the account? Wait until tomorrow? How much funds you have in the account? When was the last sale?

Use a different browser. I have seen this one happen on firefox, but works fine on Chrome. And wait 24 hours and try again.

The original poster never came back so I'm guessing it was a glitch. I had a friend post a screenshot of her paypal last night and all of the dates on her transactions were dated in 1969 so it sounds like they might be working on something. Things get glitchy when they do that.

The only solution was to upgrade to paypal buisness.

Try a smaller amount and it worked fine when I got it.
