Paypal shuts down backup funding sources

Oh, this was the best. Guess all good things must come to an end. The backup funding source linked to your PayPal Business Debit Mastercardģ will not be supported.Beginning March 11, 2019, a linked bank account will be the only backup funding source supported for your PayPal Business Debit Card. Any other currently linked backup funding source will automatically be unlinked from your PayPal Business Debit Card, including the PayPal Extras Mastercard, PayPal Smart Connect account, PayPal Cashback Mastercard, and eBay Mastercard.PayPal encourages cardholders to link a bank account so purchases can be made even when funds are not available in your PayPal balance.

I thought this was dead a while ago. So you are able to use the PPBDMC to purchase and funds taken out of your credit cards?

I remember some debit cars were shut down when backed up with credit card. This is why this card has not been popular with MSing.

Some people were actively trying to keep the paypal thing secret so the "masses" didn't kill it. The comments section of the link below is full of people trying to shut Chuck up. This is why I don't trust anything anybody says on these forums, because honestly, they are only looking out for themselves.

I do not think this is the case. This practice is subject to frequent shut-downs and there are better ways to do it than taking the risk. You do not want to mess up with Paypal.

Just to let everyone know Paypal has not shut down backup funding to the Paypal credit cards. There was another letter stating that the shutdown would occur on the 18th of March and that never happened as well. I don't think it's possible to buy prepaid paypal debit cards, although I really haven't done that in years. You can use the Paypal Business Debit Mastercard to pay Citibank.

What? You mean people were actually doing this? But RedSun said it was prone to frequent shutdowns?!

Donít believe everything you read (nothing against RedSun). Get in the habit of testing and trying things out for yourself. Many people have been doing this since 2013-2014. If youíre really ambitious, go back and read old threads. You never know what might still be around.
