Two years ago I started accepting Paypal for my NCAA pool. Last year, I ‘upgraded’ the account to accept credit card payments. I knew at the time that the credit card payments would be subject to a fee. What I learned later was that all payments were now subject to a fee – cash and credit alike.
So for the poker tournament I set up a second account to accept cash (with no fee) and asked only credit card payers to use the original account.
Now I want the money in the second account. I can’t ‘verify’ it because when I type in my bank account or my credit card, I am told “those are already linked to another account” (my original account). Without a verified account, I can’t get the money.
If I transfer the $1,000 to my original account, they will zap me for $30.
I think I have 2 choices:
- apply for a new credit card and link it to the account
- transfer the money to a friend who in turn will give me $1,000.
