    Default Paypal, I'm about to lose it.

    One simple thing, I'm trying to buy on beatport.

    I have two options; Credit Card. I don't have one as I'm 17 and won't have one for a while.

    Paypal. But after much ****ing around in Paypal it finally tells me I simply cannot add money to my paypal via my bank account because I'm not 18 or something about not having proof of photo ID.

    Either way, how the HELL does anyone under 18 buy things off the internet? This is so overcomplicated. I can't even buy the simplest thing.

    In the UK some supermarkets have the option of Paypal vouchers in store. Try looking for those??

    if you're in the US find a green dot money pack card in a wallgreens store. you can add cash to the card, then use the card to transfer money to a paypal account.

    I recently had a lot of trouble linking my bank account - I was only doing so because I hit a sending limit. It should be easier.

    Their unwillingness to add your bank account because you are a minor and lack photo ID seems pretty reasonable to me.

    I agree with corporation - get a prepaid card.

    Open a checking account at a local bank. Get a debit card for your checking account. If you have a job, have them direct deposit your pay into the checking account. You're going to need one soon enough anyway, might as well get started.

    Paypal offers a debit card that you can use which will take the money right out of your bank account.
