Paypal Credit Card Payment Processing Problem

Share with Friends

I have a credit card payment processing problem, my credit card is connected to my paypal.com account, and I use Paypal.com to pay workers as I work at my mobile offices all over the planet, I am location independent, I do not have a home.



As part of the Paypal.com security for processing of payments, they want to call me, I am not in the USA, and my parents answer the number on my account. They have strict orders, if anyone asks to verify a payment on anything, they are to say no.

Skype.com Number
As part of the paypal credit card payment processing security, they said, I could add a new number. I tried to enter my Skype.com number; however, it is not connected with an address therefore it is not accepted by Paypal.com

Doe this mean, every time I pay with Paypal.com, I need to be in the USA to answer phone calls? I could use the Verizon Global Phone, maybe they have a address connected, that number will forward anywhere on the planet.



Guatemala Security
I tried to make a reoccurring payment to buy software while here in Guatemala, for some reason it refused. I called Paypal.com and they tested everything, their recommendation was for me to return to the USA. The Paypal.com support call I made, was answered by call center in Manila, Philippines.

Mobile Office blues, there is an ever increasing security of credit card payment processing, I am not sure what to do, I know I am in the extreme minority. However, the value of paying things online is to do it anywhere, not just from my home.

Maybe get a prepaid debit visa card that can be reloaded for backup ?

Isn't it funny how their answer to you required being in the States but when you contact them you talk to an outsourced job position from a call center in the Philippines?? We have the same thing going with our paypal payments for advance bookings being deposited in our New York City bank account with an address attached to my wife's brother in Oakland, CA every 2 to 3 months they forward our USA mail to our Manila address where I pick it up from the local Paranaque post office. We have never used paypal for any payments so only receive payment thru them. I'm not sure but there might be some sort of way to answer a USA phone # by using a remote extension? I vaguely remember somebody telling me they could make a call from the Philippines but get USA cheaper phone rates years ago.

Craig you said,
"Might resolve some of your PayPal, etc. issues."
I look at it as "our" paypal.com issues.

I have a dedicated server, and yes, I can put this on my dedicated server and stop an keylogging program, cache, or server that could log my user name and passwords to paypal.com.

Effectively solving my problems, but what about "readers."

I write blanket travel tips that help the whole group, not just the super smart.

Paypal.com just stopped 98 percent of my friends in Guatemala from being able to using Paypal.com.
