False Alarm

Well, that was certainly embarrassing. A good lesson, but still embarrassing nonetheless. I was the one who had the credit card attached to his account. I must have clicked twice or something, as I don’t remember using my credit card on my paypal account before.

I found out that Paypal doesn’t allow you to send money from your credit card to people, and I don’t want to attach my debit account to my Paypal account. I need to find another online payment method. I wanted to tryout Google Checkout, but I attempted to activate an account with them, and they didn’t list Canada as a country. I was tired, so it might be there and I did not see it.

Edit: After calling Paypal two more times (waiting 15 minutes on hold to be disconnected, called back and waited again) I have it all sorted out. Somehow I ended up with another Paypal account that I don’t even remember having. I erased it, and was able to add my credit card to it.

    Congrats. I would’ve been freaking out too.

    It wasn’t so much me freaking out, more just a bit worried.
