Is PayPal authorised to request this information from me?
Yes. Just like a bank, PayPal is required by Australian law to confirm the identity of our account holders.
Australian Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing laws impact all financial institutions, including PayPal Australia which is subject to similar regulations as Australian banks.
You can find out more about the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing laws on the Attorney-General’s Department’s site.
