Paypal Stupidity

Some how Paypal thinks it makes sense to put up contradictory messages. Recently I tried to purchase something and ended up with the message you see here. First telling me that I cannot pay with a credit card and then telling me that a credit card is the only option.

You would think that a company with millions or billions of dollars could hire a few people to do quality control on the screens presented to users. And of course, how does one resolve this conflict? No phone number easily found. And if you find a phone number, you wait. And then if you get a person, you talk to someone who knows nothing about what you are talking about and has no ability to see what you are seeing.

In the end, I was able to make the purchase by credit card — despite the first message telling I could not.
