    Paypal usually accepts any card- even amex. You may want to call capital one or whoever handles it this month.

    Could be that the card is not registered/tied in on your Pay Pal account??

    I have used my Cabela's card to handle PayPal transactions for years with no issues. I think Dusty is right, contact Capital One.

    Same here. Even though the CS at Capital One sucks rocks compared to the older World's Foremost Bank issued Cabela's card, they will answer with a human after climbing their horrendously tall phone tree.

    I had a card I’d linked to PP, used it infrequently ‘cause I’m careful about accessing credit in general.

    Had reason to ask company for new card # (bought a saw blade on Amazon, seller was supposed to be in KY; checked account history after not receiving confirmation, found charge for identical
    amount to company in Malaysia, for clothingo_O).

    New card came, I activated it. Tried to re-link new one on PP, failed every time I tried, over several days, until I gave up.

    Card company said no idea why, PP won’t give me a straight answer.

    Over the years, I've found Pay Pal performance to be smooth a few times and erratic lots of other times. I avoid them when I can. JMO.

    That was LAST YEAR. You need to use it at least "once a week" to keep it from getting moldy. (and keep the economy moving) :D;)

    I was using mine to pay all my bills and rack up points. Now have a Black Cabela's card. Problem is I have run out of things that they sell that I want. They want way too much for many of their guns.

    Just wait a few days. One of these guys will give you a call and get it straightened out.
