Hello there

Hoping someone can help me.
Have money in my PayPal that I would like to withdraw to my FNB Bank account. The issue is that after entering and confirming my information, as well as confirming my PayPal by logging in, FNB is unable to verify my PayPal account. It is very annoying.

Is there perhaps some restriction now? Help would be much appreciated.

Hey man what's up!

So did you try linking it through the FNB online website or did you log into PayPal directly and link the card on there?

Maybe if you did the first option you can trying logging onto PayPal and link your card there cause I know that works for sure. And I may be mistaken, but it'll tell you there, it'll take 3-5 business days when transferring funds onto your card (might wanna double check on that)

Howzit man.

Went through FNB Online, card is linked to PayPal already, but to withdraw funds from PayPal it seems I need to link a Bank Account.

Hmmmm...I think there could be some restrictions from FNBs side. Cause I do know someone who tried linking their card even to PayPal, but restricted them and when he phoned FNB they said since he was on a passport and that's why it restricted linking his card to PayPal. So it seems maybe there is something under FNB's terms and conditions for linking bank accounts as well? Or maybe it could be like a wait "24hr" thing. But if you don't come right at the end then maybe phoning FNB and they could help out :D

I kept on having a bunch of different issues trying to get the Paypal link sorted online, eventually I just cut my loses and went to an FNB branch to get it sorted.

Now I can withdraw with no issues.
