    Paypal Direct Debits 31st Aug 17 at 12:03 PM
    Just tried to move money into Paypal by direct debit (in order to meet the min 2 dd requirements), and the option to move money by dd seems to have disappeared from Paypal. Has anyone else noticed this?

    You will need to use PayPal to pay for something then the DD will still come out.

    You can no longer pay PayPal account via DD using the app or the website.

    I think they have cottoned onto people using it for DD (maybe)

    I contacted PayPal about this today and they said it was due to "internal security systems". Hmmm.

    At least all these changes are coming at the same time, I can plan my new bank account set up if I know what I am dealing with.
