When I bought my first Acekard 2i I used PayPal and the transaction went smoothly. Now that I want to buy another, it says that I need to add a credit card to my account. Why is that? I don't own a credit card so this will definitely be a problem.

if you had some paypal cash (paypal balance, e-money, e-cash, whatever you call it) on your account, then you probably paid with that.
now you don't have enough so it isn't letting you buy anymore.

I have $24.48 on my PayPal and what I'm buying costs $23.99, I do have enough cash. Unless I'm losing money on conversions...

I just changed the currency in the shop to Canadian and the total was 24.47. I have enough but it still asks for a card.

Is your account verified? You need to have an account that is connected to a credit card or bank account to actually use the cash inside of Paypal.

Odd, I have $10 in paypal. And I tried buying something as well. But my account is not verified, so Paypal rejected it. My guess is that Paypal did some changing or something. So, I don't think there's much of anything you can do, until you verify the account with a bank account or credit card. Hopefully, someone can help you. :-/

Yes, prepaid debit cards do make your paypal account as verified. But, it will take a dollar from your prepaid card. Here's a link that might help you.

i don't know why, but even when your balance is SLIGHTLY over the amount you have to pay, Paypal forces you to add a credit card -_- very annoying.
if you had, say, $5 or $10 over the limit, it wouldnt be doing that.

    That's some 5D math that only makes sense in America.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Its different prices per state because state taxes are different, Cali taxes are higher than most, its has nothing to do w min wage.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    It does at the end of the day because they'd demand more and go on strike
  • Veho @ Veho:
    You admit the corporations charge more because people can afford it, not because it really costs more, right?
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Yes companies look at average costs of what people can afford to sale products
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And there's no competition?
  • HUNTERFOX @ HUNTERFOX:
    Competition in companies here are like crazy
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Sure but competition does the same if anything at lower rates because they don't have the same resources
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Usually like a 10-20% difference
  • Veho @ Veho:
    I was told the market would "self regulate".
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    I still feel as if prices would've gone up in America regardless of whose in office
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Of course they would, both your parties are spineless corporate stooges.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    What about companies that are nationwide. Do you think they charge in that states stores based on state economic situation. No they charge the same, but taxes per state make the price difference. (Exception maybe Alaska, Hawaii)
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Once you minimize cost of living a $500 gaming console could feel like a $1,000 console to a average home
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    But even they look at data charts and mostly have contacts in other country wide offices that talk to each other to make a fair msrp
  • Veho @ Veho:
    BigOnYa, taxes are calculated at checkout in Murrika so it's easy to compare.

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I have a family member that lives near the Ohio/Kentucky border in Cincinnati, Ohio, he goes across the border to Kentucky to buy most things because they're sales tax is lower in Kentucky.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I went down there last summer and helped him run electric in a pole barn he built, and he saved over $300 buying electrical supplies at HomeDepot in Kentucky instead of in Ohio. Weird but true.
