Default We were unable to set up pre-approved payments. Please try again later

Has anyone been getting this a lot recently on newly created accounts? I am not quite sure whether the issue for this lies with PayPal or eBay.

When you create a new account, and go to list an item, you are asked for an Automatic Payment Method. Usually I link my PayPal for this and everything goes through smoothly. However as of late, it sometimes refuses to link and gives the error message "We were unable to set up pre-approved payments. Please try again later"

I then tried to setup a Credit card as the automatic payment method, but on 3 occasions this has led to suspensions a few hours later.

I am not sure why they are sometimes preventing me from linking my PayPal and when I link my Credit card, it suspends me shortly after.

When it does go through with PayPal everything goes smoothly with no suspensions.

I see this happening every now and then (rarely).
I just leave the account and come back to it a few days later and add paypal as the method of payment at that time. Always go through for me the second time.
