New bank card - can't buy online. - March 16th 2012, 03:53 PM

Okay I finally got my new bank card through, after so much faffing about with the bank.

I really want to buy a CD, but my card keeps getting declined online. - I am trying to use paypal, as I know it's safer. But fuuu, it won't work. I tried it yesterday but figured as my pin hadn't come through yet, that's why it wouldn't work. So, my pin came through this morning [i know i don't NEED it to buy online but still] I figured I'd try again.

Any ideas what could be wrong?
Should I wait a little bit longer before trying again?

This may seem like a dumb question, but is the card activated?

Eat upon their flesh for fuel, and, through your determination and will, banish them to obscurity and a life of complacency and self righteousness that is the hell in which they live"

My thoughts exactly. When I got my card a few weeks ago, there was a sticker on it that told me I needed to call a number first to activate the card. You need to enter your social security number for verification before using it. Otherwise, it's not valid.

On the letter i got with my PIN it said I can use it right away, provided I sign the back, which I have. I don't have a social security number.. I don't even know what one of them is.

I suppose that only us Americans have social security numbers. Sorry I can't be of more help. I suppose you should contact your bank and tell them of the problem you're having. They'd probably have a better answer than me
