Your seller doesn't know you were rejected, nor does he know if you are approved. BML is a PayPal service and it appears as if you paid with PayPal.

But why you were rejected this time? Perhaps you answered one of the questions wrong in checkout, a typo maybe, your DOB, last digits of your SSN, selected the wrong type of phone for the phone number, or used the wrong email account.

I have to be careful with that last one, my eBay and BML emails are the same but my PP is different.


You can log into your PP account and use the contact us link to get the phone number and call if you must. But why not try again just to be sure. OR just pay with PayPal instead if you can't get it ironed out.

We don't know why you were declined. You need to contact Bill Me Later.
