Paypal MyCash $500 daily load limit resets after 12:00am EST
Paypal MyCash $4000 per calendar month load limit resets after 3:00am EST

An additional $4000 per month can be loaded using Greendot Moneypaks. See the Moneypak thread for issues with these. Limit purchases to no more than 2 x $500 at a time.

To get a live PayPal MyCash representative, call 1-855-721-5035, press 1 to all the voice prompts until it asks you for your PIN, and then press 0#, 0#, and 0#.

If you are getting error code 26 when loading MyCash to your account:
  1. Login to Paypal on a computer, not phone
  2. Go to settings (it is the gear)
  3. Choose selling tools on the left
  4. Scroll down to: Block payments -- Limit payments, add instructions, and more -- and choose update
  5. On the page "Payment Receiving Preferences" select the first radio button, "For the items not sold on eBay, Only allow payments from the users with confirmed address."
  6. Be sure that NO is chosen
  7. Save and you are done

All things PAYPAL [2013-2014 Master Thread]

I hit the $4000 max load per month yesterday on paypal but today, in a new calendar month according to their T&C, it says I have met my limit and come back on 02/01/2013. Anyone have experience? I don't want to call

Using GD or PP Cash? I had a similar, though not identical, experience last month using PP Cash.

PP Cash is in many ways more valuable than VR. Why would you push it to the limit and risk getting shut down? Especially QL_714, who is always complaining about newbies.

I was hoping it would have reset by now, but nope, my account is still showing the same balance as of last month. I wonder how long it's going to take for PayPal to update the data...

So my card stopped loading in Dec. saying to wait until 1/1/13. Fine. Waited.

Now? No loads: wait until 2/1/13.

The Amazing PayPal! At it again. And I've got some cash sitting there . . .

Same again for the new day. Which is in a new month. Which is in a new year.

This has been going on too long.

And don't bother trying to call that number at paypal-cash.com. Endless loop with your card info.

We are sorry, You are only able to load up to $500 per day/$4000 per month max. Our records indicate that you have loaded $4000.00 this month. The $500.00 load you are requesting at this time will go over the allowed monthly limit. Please return to this webpage on 02/01/13 to execute this load.

If anyone can find a number to call, I'm happy to be the sacrificial lamb here.

My PayPal account has plenty of legit usage, so I'm not too worried about it.

Even though it does state calender month, has anyone here actually waited 30 days or more since their first reload last month?
