Every time you go to a credit card-processing website and receive a “no account found” message, it is a fresh reminder of how little we think about the way we use those cards.
The problem is that the vast majority of people use card numbers as their primary credit card or debit card number. They are so common and so easy to remember that there’s no excuse not to always choose them as your default credit card number. But there are times when you need to use a different number, such as for your PayPal account.
I got into a debate with one of my co-workers this morning about this topic, and he made a point that I’ve never understood before now. He suggested that when you need to change your credit card number you should not be given a credit card number. But then he made the same point about the number for your PayPal account.
It kind of makes sense. If you need to change your credit card number you should get a new card. But if you need to use a different number for your PayPal account, you should have a different account.
But this is where things get fuzzy. It seems to me that you should have a credit card number and a PayPal account. At least that’s what you should be told. But that doesn’t seem to be the case. In fact, I’m not even sure if you should have a new credit card number or a new PayPal account. The best advice I can give you right now is that if you should change your credit card number or PayPal account, change it.
Credit card numbers are pretty standard. They are usually a six-digit number. The first three digit numbers are the card number. The last three digits are the expiration date. You should be able to change your credit card number and PayPal account to something else.
PayPal accounts are a little more complicated. They are usually two-digit numbers, but there are exceptions. You can change your PayPal account to a new one.
PayPal accounts are the same as credit card accounts except you can also set up two-factor authentication. This means that if you have a valid credit card, you can use it to set up a new PayPal account. If you don’t, you can switch to a new credit card, but it will take a while to come online.
We all remember the story of the woman who was so desperate that she had her father give her a card for her new credit card. It was pretty funny for a while, but eventually she got tired of it and turned it in to the bank.
For those who don’t know, that story is a classic example of the “You can’t do that!” syndrome. It’s pretty common for people to be so desperate to be able to do something that they end up taking on that which they wouldn’t normally do. It’s a shame too because the more you are forced to use credit cards to buy things, the more you will be paying in interest as a result.
