PayPal: please add a debit or credit card to complete your purchase

Post by JamesMiller »

I could not make the purchase because I am unable to use my card, every time I try to buy something following message appears, "Please add a debit or credit card to complete your purchase". I already have both my cards linked to PayPal. What should I do?

Hi JamesMiller,

There is a possible solution to this error you're dealing with, only do this if you're comfortable.

If you use Chrome, you can try an addon called Quick JavaScript Switcher.
This will help you switch off Javascript, what you need to do is when you reach the window turn the Javascript off. This forces Paypal to go into what looks like a legacy mode. The window will state that some functions need JavaScript and it will ask for CAPTCHA.
Once done, it is said that it fixes the problem and everything goes as it should.
