PayPal Question

posted by StarskyMaxwell on - last edited - Viewed by 92 users

I'm trying to purchase the Tales of Monkey Island Deluxe Edition using PayPal - is it possible to do so when you're registered in PayPal through a bank account and not a credit card? 'Cause when I try, all that shows up is "To complete payment, add a debit or credit card to your PayPal account." (well, it shows up in Spanish, but I'm translating roughly).

Thanks!

  • I had the same problem with PayPal when I was trying to purchase Monkey Island 1&2 on D2D. (I'm from Poland).
    I haven't got a credit card so I just bought the games somewhere else but.. I'm afraid in this case it's imposible.

    I think that for some reasons companies in few countries want you to pay by credit card for particular games. I don't now why and it's just weird but.. it is.

    I don't know about other countries, but from Germany it works via PayPal with a linked and confirmed bank account.

  • Make sure you have it confirmed through your bank account. It'll ask you to confirm your bank account.

  • Don't know what the deal is here but I just tried to place an order and pay with a paypal account that had my bank account and a credit card only. When I went to pay with paypal it chose my credit card to pay with. So I hit change payment type and it told me that this retailer (telltale games) does not accept "e-check" payments (money straight out of your account). So, I had to go to paypal and add my debit card as a credit card and then come back to pay. When I did this, it now shows that telltale games does accept e-check payments. So maybe you just have to have a debit card linked to your account in order to pay straight out of your account. Seems kinda strange but it worked and I didn't have to put it on a credit card so I'm fine with it.
