For security and legal reasons, there are initial limits on how much money customers can send, receive, and withdraw using their PayPal accounts. Confirming your credit card raises some of these limits and makes you a Verified PayPal member.


Here's how you can get Verified:

  1. Log in to your PayPal account.
  2. Click Get verified near the top of the page.
  3. Enter your credit card information and click Continue .

After you click Continue, we'll charge this card $1.95 USD or equivalent to make sure it's yours. The charge creates a unique 4-digit code that appears on your online credit card bill within a few days.

Once you receive the 4-digit code, log back in to your PayPal account to complete the process. We'll refund the money into your PayPal account within 24 hours after you confirm your card.

What is a confirmed address?

A confirmed address means that the buyer's credit card billing and shipping address are the same. In general, we cannot confirm most addresses outside the U.S. at this time.

If your seller requires a confirmed shipping address, we suggest you contact them directly. Sellers may deliver to an unconfirmed address, but they are responsible for any buyer-initiated disputes.
