    Never ever had a problem buying on eBay really (lke this).

    Just went to buy a few items tonight & noticed i can't pay by PayPal for any of them. My card hasn't ran out of date or anything like that.

    So i entered in my card details manually. Plenty of money on there & hasn't expired yet.

    I've just had emails come in saying failed payment - not able to process.

    Never had this kind of thing before. What's it all about?

    I haven't had any issues. Perhaps give Paypal a ring, they are very helpful.

    Is the available balance less than the full balance for some reason?

    I've had a couple of buyers saying they've had problems paying recently so it maybe a glitch. Both have managed to pay eventually.

    Hi,
    I was unable to buy something off Ebay last night as it was not allowing me to pay through Paypal. I logged off last night and today bought the item by successfully paying with Paypal. So I agree with jwil that there has been a glitch somewhere.

    In the end I temporarily solved the problem by buying from my wife's eBay account

    Which by the way uses the exact same bank account.

    Probably yet another ebay glitch- never a day goes by without some issue or another.
