What do you mean it doesn't accept it? did you already attempt to purchase a membership?
Yes. I attempted several months ago. Tried it again a week or so ago. Tried it again just before my last post on this subject; attempting to determine if I was missing something on the JCC site. I then called PayPal to check that my PayPal Extras MasterCard credit card was still linked to my PayPal account and active/operational. I've made purchases this way many times, the most recent on eBay a couple weeks ago. Merchants don't know the source of funds and presumably don't care. They get the money from PayPal.
Here's what happens:
- Click on Get Premium
- Click Sign Up Premium; 2 options presented: 1) PayPal link goes to PayPal home page, 2) Order Using PayPal button. Used option 2... Clicked the button and it transfers to PayPal login screen.
- Click Log In button
- Get an error message: Link a card to make an instant payment. To complete this payment, add a debit or credit card to your PayPal account.
PayPal said my credit card is linked to my account. They suggested the merchant can set up filters; one being to not accept a payment without a backup funding source (like a bank checking account). I'm assuming this is why my payment is not accepted.
On the matter of security concern, the Sign Up Premium page says:
"Validity periods marked * indicate that purchasing this subscription is recurring, this means after the period is complete it will automatically be renewed. All paid subscription fees are non-refundable."
This confirms my PayPal account data is stored and reused automatically on an annual basis. I could not find a way to opt out of that.
Thanks, hope this helps.
