Have you already set up your PayPal account so you can make the payment?

 

And did you register a credit card with your PayPal account and verify it?

 

Some buy-it-now items require immediate payment.  So you must already have your PayPal account set up and you must register a credit card with your PayPal account.  A bank account is not enough.  Not for listings with "immediate payment required".

What are you trying to do when it asks you for a phone #?

 

Do you have your phone # recorded in your Personal Information section of My eBay?

 

Use the COMMENT link under your question to give more information.

Why won't it let you? A xxx-xxx-xxxx phone number should not be a problem.
