    So.....

    I misplaced my paypal debit card and reported it lost. I went ahead and requested a replacement and guess what...... I had to 'apply' for a new one. not a huge deal I suppose, except for the fact that they now run a credit check when you request a new debit card.......... wtf paypal






    Sorry for the rant.

    well this is new to me..
    they never did any credit check on me, it was free to all verified premium business members and i applied and they sent over to me in 2 weeks time.
    I damaged my card once in rain and called them up , they asked me file at their site lost card and apply new, and did that and got another in 2 weeks.

    you need to talk to the cust service.,

    Are you sure that you didn't accidentally apply for their credit card?

    Yep.. positive.

    They said this was something "new" they're doing. I don't agree with them wanting to run a credit check. Especially since I already had a paypal debit card to begin with. I should have at least been 'grandfathered' in....
