Assuming PayPal has a venmo type payment system that I'm not aware of and that's what won't qualify? Just do a funds transfer and that will work?

I've had nothing but bad experiences with BBVA. I once closed a checking account with them. A couple months later, they reopened the account (without informing me) to deposit a single cent of interest. The account then immediately started being charged fees for not maintaining the minimum daily balance.

It took months to clear it up and get those fees waved. Not worth the headache or the hypertension.

I also had a bad experience with them. I closed my account and a few months later rec'd a notice that a scheduled payment, which I had not scheduled, had been attempted and they said I owed them for the failed payment attempt. I called them and expld the account had been closed for months and I never tried to pay a bill out of it.

It took a while but I finally got it straightened out, but no amount of money would induce me to open an account there.
