What Do I Do?

Anyone, what do I do? I joined FAA some years ago with check as the option for payment. I sell now and then. This summer sold a large print and one other small item , total to $100 approx. FAA won’t pay me unless via PayPal. I can’t access PayPal— reason; maybe because my iMac/brower not upgraded enough and can’t do it. Right now I haven’t the dough to BUY a brand new computer and some is working well. Someone said use someone else’s PayPal, now that does not sound right. 
So anyone, WHAT DO I DO to get my money? I really need it. FAA needs to pay me, I ask if this once by check, but guess won't do it. HELP!

Do you have a smart phone?

Can you use another browser like Firefox or Chrome? You can download those browsers in the latest versions.

 

They sell stripped-down computers just for accessing the internet so I really doubt your iMac is too old. It's your browser that is out of date and needs to be updated. I normally use Firefox but I found an article about Chrome that might help you. Browsers are free to download...

Yes, have a smartphone. Have to have to do a PayPal account!
I already have Firefox, tho on the older iMac can't get the latest browsers. Tried to set up PayPal account, then stalls and can't continue. Sorry!

For browser, Chrome, this is the message I get: "This computer will no longer receive Google Chrome updates because Mac OS X 10.6 - 10.9 are no longer supported." At a loss.

 

Try using a friend's computer. Or use a computer at a library.

Thanks out there. Right now so frustrated feel like just leave FAA . Even if I use a friends computer, once, still need to access PayPal to transfer to one's bank. Is it such a hardship for FAA to pay via check?

There will be no more checks from FAA

Try accessing Paypal with your smart phone Mary. You can download google chrome on that. Remember you have to have your bank set to online banking also so Paypal can transfer the funds so you best get that set too. I use a separate bank account for that so there is no mistaking from our normal day to day banking. If it gets confusing your bank can help you set it up.

If you choose to use the library or a public computer of any kind always remember to log out of all your accounts before shutting down. You don't want the next guy using the computer to access your information.

Go to a local library - or ask a freind with a computer - then open a new paypal account - or update your old account.

"Get the PayPal app on your phone?"

Ya, that's what I was trying to get at, a computer isn't the only way to access your PayPal account.

Thank you all for the suggestions. Hope I can do this otherwise can't have FAA anymore. I would not normally use PayPal for anything else!

PayPal is great for many things! People sending you money and for online shopping. More secure than CC

You should be able to do everything with the phone - IF you have trouble figuring it out get a friend to help you.

the computer shouldn't make a difference. maybe if you have a ad remover or script blocker or you got the password etc wrong then maybe. is there an error?

oh i would never use a library for something like paypal, that's a good way for everything to be stolen.

if chrome isn't updated, can't you just get another browser. what happened to safari, that's a mac right?

Mike, yes I have Safari, just can't upgrade enough, and for some Firefox does even more, but not forever on old equipment. That is the problem I am guessing on this. The iMac is old. Will try checking out more.

I agree, don't use the Library, and not so great to use someone elses computer either, plus in these times not such a good idea to go there. Just really can't go get another computer .

If not figured out, then Goodbye FAA. A shame! But businesses mostly don't care. Is the modern age!!

You should contact Paypal if you have an issue using them. I know many people on older tools still get on there okay, it is only a webpage

I have been reading this and wondering the same things Abbie just said. I don't think the age of the system has much to do with it. Well unless you are using something that dates back to Fred Flintstones age...

PayPal does not have as many people working customer service as the used due to COVID, so they say, so it it may take some patience. I would call them as Abbie suggest and they can probably help you.

Just an unsolicited opinion, but it would be nice if you could upgrade you computer. But do not make the mistake of buying a stripped down model that only accesses the Internet. Some of those systems that were announced and sold a lot just a little while back are already being discontinued and no longer being supported.

I use Firefox on an older Mac and it updates regularly automatically... never had a problem with PayPal.
