can I link that to a Jersey bank account?\’
I do apologise but you may not be able to do it. UK PayPal account must
also have a UK bank account. This is because you might be required to
validate information on the account and this will not work if the bank is
not in UK.
However, I would just suggest that you sign up a US PayPal account so you
could be able to register your Jersey bank account. Of course, you must
also have information such as postal address in US.
Perhaps a few remedial lessons in geography would be worthwhile? Jersey is, of course, not the same as New Jersey.
And yes, I was asking the European end of PayPal.
