The valid date of my registered credit card on Paypal was over. So, I tried to a new card on PayPal few days ago. Every time I make a payment on global internet market, they always charge me one dollar fee to validate the card. Of course, it is cancelled soon, and refunded.
In case of PayPal, they charge additional 1.95 dollar as a way of identifying the owner of the card. and users should enter 4 numbers which is sent via their mobile phone.
Usually Visa or MasterCard send Paypal code number in the SMS upon approval of transaction.
But the American Express Card didn’t. I received only the text MARK PAYPAL PPPL, not numbers which should appear as PP*xxxxCODE.
So, I log on to the Samsung card homepage and searched. but I couldn’t find the numbers.
I waited for several hours, and logged on again. but there was no difference. So, I was wondering that what will happen my money. the 1.95 dollar just disappear? but I believed they will refund someday, and registered another MasterCard.
When I started to forget my poor 1.95 dollars, I suddenly logged on to the web page and figured out how much my billing will be this month. I stumble upon a 4-digit number in my transaction history.
I guess the number doesn’t appear right after, it takes several days to appear. Anyway it worked well.
Samsung AMEX card has an advantage of low currency exchange fee, but they don’t in this kind of jobs. I think this is the problem of all AMEX card not only at Samsung card. Anyway the problem solved and register the card as my primary card.
If you’re in a hurry to make a payment via PayPal, please register early, when especially via AMEX card.
