GetHuman3359406's customer service issue with PayPal from August 2019

Help with my PayPal issue
The issue in GetHuman3359406's own words
My bank declined a large online paypal charge to my visa card due to a fraud alert setting. After trying numerous times to resubmit the transaction and talking to my card issuer and getting the $ restriction removed the card is still declined and says to try another one, but no charge is presented to the bank and they think it is a paypal problem. The bank said to call paypal and maybe the card had been declined so many times that paypal was no longer processing the credit card.

GetHuman3359406 did not yet indicate what PayPal should do to make this right.

How GetHuman3359406 fixed the problem
Create a PayPal account and link my credit card to the account. Worked perfectly. PayPal thought it might be an issue with the vendor's server but they don't have one. I have used PayPal to pay with my credit card for years and have never had a problem until now.
