Question

All this is set out in Linden Lab's Wiki on Paypal.

 

PayPal

How do I setup payment with PayPal?

Follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your PayPal account.
  2. Click the My Account tab.
  3. Click the Profile subtab.
  4. Under the Financial Information section, click My preapproved payments.
  5. If you have any existing billing agreements with Linden Research, select and cancel them.
  6. Go back to the Profile subtab again.
  7. Under the Account Information section, update your information where needed (your PayPal agreement may silently fail if your Second Life account lacks a billing address and email).

Then create the PayPal agreement with Linden Lab.

You must have funds available in your Primary funding source (PayPal balance) for any purchase to go through. If you do not have enough funds in your Primary, the remaining balance will be drawn from your Secondary funding source (bank account or credit card).

Hello.

 

No, you're not the only one... i got the same problem... and i'm very tied, because i'm trying to assiciate my SL account to my paypal account for 4 long month now....

My paypal account is verified, i have associate my bank and my credit card with it, i have money on my paypal..

I had send 2 tickets to LL, but they only tell me that i already know, to have bank or credit on it...

I have tryed the Nyll's solution (cancel all the existing agrement with LL, witch were ok), and it still tell me "you must have a verifed paypal account"...

What can i do else ?

this is realy enoying....

 

(sorry for my english, i'm from France...)

@Diane:

I suspect this is another issue with the flawed local payment system. It took me two months and lots of help from LL to get my credit card updated. I'm going to suggest you do not try to alter your Dashboard > Billing Information but instead proceed through the Lindex. Select Buy L$ on your Dashboard and you should get an option to add a payment method. Select Paypal and hopefully you will be brought to the Cashier system page where you can input all the necessary details. You will have to actually buy some Lindens this way but it may work. If you already have a payment method in Billing Information, which you don't seem to have, I'm not sure it will.

Failing that, try phoning Billing Support. https://support.secondlife.com/billing-support/ There is a toll-free number for France but support is in English only. Your english seems good so hopefully you can deal with this. Do NOT ask a friend to help with translation as Billing Support will most likely refuse to talk to you with another person there on the line.

If all this fails, send an email to support@payments.secondlife.com and ask for assistance detailing all you have tried so far.
