Why is my funded PP account suddenly sending eChecks?

It always used to just deduct the necessary funds from my bank account. Now all of a sudden it's sending everyone eChecks. I haven't used it in a few weeks, perhaps something about PP has changed and I didn't get the memo??

Help me!!

I found if I didnt have exactly enough in my balance it would send an echeck instead...

My DH needed to send $21.50 and I had $21.46 he ended up sending $21.46 to avoid the stupid echeck!

I had that happen to me, a quick call to PP to confirm my banking info and identity fixed the problem

hmm... well in the past, if I had $5 in my PP account and needed to send $15, it'd take the $5 in PP first and then take $10 from my bank account. Now it's just automatically sending an eCheck for the entire amount even though I have the money in PP!!! I guess I'll go call.

If you remove your CC, or if it expires, it will only do echeques, as PP can't guarantee the $ is in your account, and they have no "backup" if you don't have a CC attached.

I've never had a CC attached to this account so that it would still be a funded pp account, not a cc account, so that's not the problem this particular time.

it will happen if you have a savings account as your primary in paypal. It doesn't happen if you have a regular checking account.
