Can no longer use Paypal to add funds/verify my account

yes, I am currently in the UK. I only ever use PAYPAL for web based payments, it is the only safe way to prevent theft / fraud etc with adequate protection. I wondering why this universally accepted payment system has been removed

I'm amazed too (from Spain). I don't understand why.

I wasnt aware that it was not, I do know you have to use a verified CC to use paypal (on file with paypal) with SL ....

When did they take this option away? it's how I would assume 80% of people cashout of SL.

OHHH okay I did find this...

Yes it was so nice of LL to sneak this in and not tell anyone,they should have done an official blog.

I almost missed having the money to pay for my homestead,i had the money in paypal waiting for the end of Nov,,i just happen to see a post in the forums about it so converted it to lindens right away.

They lost a premium member ship because i have no alternative payment plan yet and prob won t by the next few days it becomes due,anyway ,premium does nt benefit me in any way at all,except the 300 each week.

Given that I choose (as do many others in the current climate) NOT to make my credit card available here, the online bank transfer list sounds like the cast from a Mickey Mouse movie. Yeah right! Like I'm giving my details to these people!

PayPal is the only serious player in this field...  Like I said before, its swimming against the tide to engage here. Lindens clearly spat their dummy out about some sort of % payout to Paypal, expect the user to take the risks !!

No Thanks!

Thank you for bringing this up as I also didn't know that Paypal is off the SL limit. I also won't be giving anyone my credit card details. What I have in my SL account that will be it, after that I won't be buying anymore Lindens.

Looks like anyone outside the USA will be inconvenienced by this change in SL payment.

How unfair of SL not to even inform people of this changes.

You are not the only one thinking that SL is just bit to much like swimming upstream.

Plenty of us inside the USA are inconvenienced by it too. I live in the US, but i also prefer the security of PayPal transactions to handing over any credit card of bank account info. I'm baffled by this change also.

I was just wondering when this happened, as I used my paypal to buy linden dollars on the 30th of November with no problems.  Is it just in the last few days this has been changed?
