    You need to have 97 USD in your account, if you have money in your indian currency it will not work and show this error.

    I think your Paypal is somehow limited for some reason...Better contact their support.

    No Mate..it's not limited. Indian paypal doesnt allow you to purchase with paypal balance. I have a valid card linked with my paypal..Is there a way can we pay for the membership without linking paypal? 2 checkout may be?

    Somehow the cost is 117 USD for me. Maybe in your case is the same, that's why you need more funds.

    Indian Paypal accounts cannot pay using the balance. Your balance will be auto-withdrawn at the end of the day.

    You need funds in the attached card/debit card's bank account to be able to make a payment.

    Nah, that's the normal $97 fee+VAT for "privileged" EU citizens like myself and it seems yourself too. :)

    If you have an Indian PayPal account,the balance really doesn't matter. You can only withdraw it and in no way can the PayPal funds be used for transaction. Make sure you have the required amount in the attached Bank Account (whose card you're using is linked too).

    Yep I'm afraid that's the tax you have to pay for being an eu member. Another fantastic ruling passed down from Brussels. ......... No must stop before I have to ban myself for political posting!

    @IMholic there is currently PayPal only as an auto option. I think @Diamond Damien is working on stripe. Pm him and he maybe able to do it manually. Although don't hold your breath. It's a bit manic at BHW HQ this week...... Can't think why

    Thing is, it's not impossible to pay via Paypal for Indians. The balance OP is showing will be withdrawn at EOD today automatically to his bank. Happens once every 24 hours.

    Any outward remittance through Paypal - the money has to come from the attached card. So Stripe or Paypal - the OP will have to pay using his balance.

    I suggest try adding 97$ funds in your credit card attach to your paypal account that should fix it, if not contact paypal support.
