Do I need to verify my PayPal account before I can accept or withdraw donations?

All PayPal accounts, including yours, initially have sending and withdraw limits, which determine how much money you can send and withdraw from your account.

To lift these limits, you’ll need to get verified by adding and confirming an additional payment method, such as a bank account or credit or debit card to your PayPal account.

To check if your account is verified, view the Account Overview page in your PayPal account.
