Exclamation Added+confirmed new P/P # - will it help adding bank?

Hello everybody.

Background - BoA closed my accounts last week. I've been struggling for the past week to add new banks to my paypals and have been successful on all accounts except my main, which naturally is the most important. On the main account I first tried adding a bank the usual way and got hit with "device not recognized" error message. I then tried calling in and hung up when transferred to live rep, because I was afraid of DB questions. Tried calling again two days later to talk with the rep, but now paypal automatically hangs up on me when I call. I guess I called too many times, because that now happens any time I try to call. So, next option, I email them via the self-help center on the paypal website.

Today I get an email response from a paypal rep saying this:

I understand you are trying to add a new bank account with your PayPal account so I attempted to call you but you were unavailable.
No worries! I have endorsed your account to one of our account specialists. Kindly expect a call from us within the next 24 to 48 hours.

Well, I was kind of expecting that. At this point I add a new phone number to paypal and receive their confirmation text. The original phone number on my account was never confirmed, so this new number I added is the only confirmed number on the account. I was honestly expecting adding a new phone number to be more difficult, or I would have just added a new phone from the get-go.

So I guess my questions is this: Since the new phone number I just added is the only confirmed phone number on the account, will the "account specialist" call that number? Or better yet, since the new phone number I added is the only confirmed number on the account, would I be able to select the new number to receive a text or call from paypal when trying to add a bank account?




Any relevant responses would be greatly appreciated

Whatever number they have on file, that's what they are going to use to contact you.

That doesn't much answer anything empire.

The number I just gave them is the only confirmed number on file for this account. The number the rep tried to call was the old (unconfirmed) phone number used to create the account. So I'm wondering if the next call will be to the new (confirmed) phone number or to the old (unconfirmed) phone number. Or alternatively, if I can use my new confirmed phone number to receive a text from paypal, pass the security check, and attach the bank myself.

This is why you stick with one number to avoid this problem.

WTF does that help? I asked for RELEVANT responses. The number used to create the account is dead and it's not coming back. If you have nothing to contribute, please stop spamming my thread.

Got this email from paypal after adding the new phone number. So (I could be wrong) it looks like this is now the phone number linked to my account. I'm going to try adding a bank again tomorrow and see if it will let me use the new phone number to pass the security check.

Add and confirm a new phone number won't help. I had the same problem these weeks, trying to add a new bank card in the past 2 weeks but failed. I tried to add 1-2 days or 2-3 days, not working both. Now it's about 10 days passed.

My new phone number was confirmed and added about 2 months ago. That's the only filed number in my account, but when the error message pops out, there's no option you can choose that number to verify the account.

I also have no idea what to do.

Tad bit of good news. I was able to send a very large payment overseas this morning without any security checks. So I don't think my account has any silent limitations. Now if I could just add this bank account..

Paypal costumer reps will use the phone number on file to call you. Since you added a new number that is now the number on file.
As for adding a bank account though its a different story since its an automated system which will always want the original phone number. I dont think anyone has found a way around this and the only way Ive heard of that one has been able to add a bank account without having access to the original phone number is by calling in.

Thanks for your input slokor.

On one of the accounts that I've successfully added a new bank account to, I was able to call in with the original (spoofed) number, talk to the automated system and add the bank. This main account has had A LOT more ($100k+) payments and I think that's why I'm having a harder time. I tried spoofing with the main account just like I successfully did with the first account. But I got transferred to a live rep on the main account. I should have just talked to the rep when I had the chance, because now when I try calling them Paypal hangs up on me right after I enter the "one-time PIN".

Anyway I guess I wasn't really expecting any magical solutions for this issue. Just reaching out to anyone who may have had a similar experience for suggestions.

No risk no reward.

But really the account isn't risky at all. It has been Top Rated Plus since it was 90 days old. Never had any listings pulled or anything else bad happen to the account.

I call it my main for a reason. All of my wholesale customers are invoiced from this particular account. I send out $1k+ invoices all the time from this paypal, so dollar amounts add up quickly. The account isn't in jeopardy at all, but I have several other stealth's just in case anything ever does happen to it.

You can not send any more than 10K in a single payment since 2013. Sucks when paying ebay fees for high dollar accounts.

I thought you have been calling in and having a rep manually add the bank?
If not, why haven't you? Just not comfortable talking to paypal?
