hi im becky cookie
i got a 3v card awhile ago and opened a paypal account then on tuesday just gone i added money to my account but theirs no money in my account still after 5days,ive emailed them and got sum rubbish email back saying i have to have the account verified but it has been that was days ago they charged me the 1;50 for verifying my card and that's bin put into my account but still no cash,it says in my account irish-verified so were is my cash? has this happened to anybody else or just me?
how long does it take for the funds to go into your account? somebody i know said it takes 3 to 5 days but 3v is not the same as credit card or debit card is it will it take longer because its a voucher? i wanted to get my son something with that money and now i cant

You're just going to have to wait. :(

The first mistake you made is going with 3V in the first place. I cannot believe people are actually buying into it. They HAD a monopoly on prepaid/debit style cards in Ireland up until a few months ago.

You would be MUCH better off opening a current account with Halifax and getting a Visa debit card. Works the same way only the fees are not extortionate and is "seen" as a credit card when in fact it is not.

Be careful with your 3V "card" too, fees left right and center. It's a really REALLY bad deal.

***disclosure: I am not on very good terms with the guys at 3V

Did you verify your account?

You need to add the expanded use number, you can check that almost instantly in the 3V transaction reports online. (The one good thing about 3V).

Then, when paying for an item, pay with paypal and it will charge the "card" not the funds in your account. You don't actually need to put funds into the account.

Did the payment go through when you paid for it?
What does your transaction report say?

I think your best bet would be to call up 3V and PayPal in the morning.
