To protect you from fraudulent transactions, PayPal sets an initial limit on how much you can send and withdraw.You can choose to become Verified to remove these restrictions.

Verification also helps to build confidence between buyers and sellers.

Verify with credit card

PayPal accepts credit cards bearing a Visa, MasterCard or American Express logo, and supports international currencies for verification.

You’ll need to enter a 4-digit code from your credit card statement onto the PayPal website. We’ll create your unique code by charging your credit card $1.95 USD, which will be refunded within 24 hours after you verify your card.
