    Does this still work as a DD Westie? I thought this was part of the functionality Paypal had withdrawn? (I'm very confused about exactly what does and doesn't work though).

    Not aware of any - if you want to donate something useful to the NHS then there are at least a couple of ways to do so....

    Same as any payment I make using PayPal. I buy stuff on eBay and pay via PayPal and the DD is pulled, so I only use the accounts at month end that I haven't used through the month via eBay or other websites where I can use PayPal at checkout.

    But, you haven't said how you get it to draw from several linked accounts, nor whether it works going to the other person's PayPal account (I'm reluctant to ask for their current account details).

    You don't need the other party's current account details, just the email address that they use for PP.

    Hi,

    Yes my PayPal account is nil, so when I send any money either for a payment for a purchase or to another person it takes the money from one of my linked accounts via DD. I have six linked accounts on my PayPal account,

    At week end of the month I check and see what accounts I have used
    for transactions (I use PP as a payment if possible) The accounts that havent been used then I log into PP and send my sister some funds (my PayPal account is empty) I send between 5 - 10, from each of my linked accounts that are needed.

    I send the money instantly to my sisters PayPal account, and I tell PP what account to take the money from. (the same process you would do when making any transactions where you use PP to pay)

    I then get my sister to send the money to my bank account, I then transfer the money into the accounts that the DD are coming out from. The DD are taken around four days this process.

    As mentioned before sometimes I only have to do this for one account, other months its all six, all depends on what purchases I have made during the week.

    Thanks, I've never made any purchase from mine and only set it up for DD purposes. I also thought that the quoted bit was necessary for it to work. I'm trying to get my PayPal account unsuspended ATM, so when do you think the last day for arranging the DDs might be, bearing in mind that Monday is a Bank holiday?
