Petco.com and PayPal problem

Whenever I try to purchase something off of Petco.com using PayPal, I receive this error:
- There was an error processing your PayPal request. Please click the Place Your Order button to try again. If you still encounter a problem, please click the Change button in the Payment Information section below to select a different method of payment.


I have never had an issue paying with PayPal other than at Petco. Using another payment method works fine as I tried using PayPal for a previous order in February but ran into the same problem, so I used my credit card which worked without hesitation. With this order I want to use up some of the money sitting in my PayPal balance and would heavily prefer not paying with any other method. This is with an unverified Personal account tied only to a credit card (not bank account). Any clue as to why this is happening?

As always, thanks for any insight on the matter.

I have problems with paypal and certain sites. It really pi$$e$ me off . I really don't know why. Sometimes it is because some info doesn't match. IE. phone number, address, zip. A space some where...... thats all I really can say. Try contacting paypal and petco to see if you can get it cleared up.

I checked before making this thread and all information matches up. I'll probably just pay with credit card as I really have no idea why my PayPal isn't going through. It's not a huge deal but I couldn't find anyone else with this problem and was curious as to why I was experiencing it.

It is the only place that has it from what I saw. Plus, it is an online exclusive only so I can't simply drive to Petco and purchase it. I can probably find a similar item elsewhere though.
