Okay… So I have a verified bank account, HAD a linked debit card (read on), a PayPal debit card with my bank account set as backup, and I usually never have an issue with any transaction.
However, my linked debit card became compromised due to some unauthorized transactions, so I had it disabled. In light of that, I also removed the same [used to be] linked debit card from my PayPal account. I still have my bank account linked and set as backup for my PayPal debit card; none of that has changed. However, now my transactions are being declined whenever I use my PayPal debit card. Yes, my bank account is funded appropriately.
Could they be getting declined because I deleted a no-longer-functional-nor-feasible-to-keep-on-my-account personal debit card?
