I used to be able to send eChecks (connected to my checking account) via PayPal to anyone, but in recent months I've only been able to do it for domestic recipients. It throws a cryptic error message when I try to send to an international recipient. Is this something other people are experiencing as well?

The workaround is to wait for the account to fill up before paying but that can be annoying if I need to pay someone immediately.

I'm not sure what is going on with that either. Few weeks back I needed to pay an invoice in pounds, usually just pay it right out of my checking account and of course pay the paypal markup on currency conversion. Got an error message that vanished with no explanation. Instead I had to transfer funds to paypal, waiting 5 business days, then was able to pay the invoice out of that balance. Seems like an identical issue as yours.

Yeah that's the same issue. Fucking annoying!

My theory is that the credit card companies complained that they were not getting a slice of your nut so paypal implemented this. paypal make a lot on currency float (handling your money while it is in stasis, they trade in currency making even more profit). I made the mistake awhile back of paying an invoice in euros through my credit card. Not only were there all the fees through conversion but my cc took $15 on top.

Here's the exact message I get these days. Makes no sense since it's a checking account, not a credit card.

Quote:

We are sorry, but we could not complete this payment, because it has been denied by the card issuer. Please retry with a different card or funding option to continue with the payment.

I used to have my checking account through a small local credit union however they had some security feature that declined all international security features due to risk of fraud regardless of where it is from. Maybe your bank added new security?

Iíve had this issue sending payments to certain Canadian and Australian labels with no explanation from PayPal. The only workaround Iíve discovered is to pay with a credit card.

I think the other workaround is to transfer funds into your PayPal account or wait for it to fill up if you run a label.
