I’ve heard a lot about BillFloat.com recently, both from online advertisers, and directly from two of my own creditors. For the hell of it, I decided to check them out. But when it came time to apply, over and over both my debit card and my husband’s debit card were denied – even though the numbers were entered in correctly, and both were active cards, attached to our PayPal account.
And therein lies the rub.
It was only after I contacted BillFloat.com to ask what was going on, and why I was having trouble, that I was informed that “at this time” BillFloat.com only accepts debit cards that are connected directly to checking accounts. Therefore, PayPal debit cards do not qualify.
And that’s all well and good, except that this wasn’t stated anywhere on their website, so there went nearly an hour of my time, plus their time when I contacted them for help.
