Just approved for Paypal Extras MC - had to call in for approval

I see that normally I should have a temp fund source within Paypal to start using it now but that does not show up in my Paypal account.  I'm assuming this is because I had to call in to get the approval.  I went through the online app, and came to a page that said call in for further approval.  I called in and was approved for $2500.00.  I'm not sure what cb they hit, I'm guessing TU.  I don't know my current TU score.  Is there anyway to get the temp card added to my Paypal account?  Has anyone gone through this?

Re: Just approved for Paypal Extras MC - had to call in for approval

normally, they let you have access to 50% of your cl as a temp cl until you get your card... but you really can't do much with that, except buy stuff on Paypal.

 

This is a GREAT card btw! pif the first two statements and see if you can get an AUTO CLI. The CLIs in general are AMAZING on this card!

 

Good luck ! :-)

I also had to call in when I applied a couple weeks back.  I was approved for $2000 but when the card came it stated $3000 :smileyhappy: .. Mine never showed up on my paypal account too, I activated the card Saturday and its still not showing up.  Apparently it takes four business days from activation for it to show up.

They use TU.  you should receive an email (tied to the PayPal account  welcoming you.  When you log in the temp credit you see will be your 'limit' until the card arrives in a week. 

 

You can also add your mobile numbeto once you set up your settings.
