Given an email or phone number, how do I check the status of a PayPal account using the PHP API?

Important: Adaptive Payments is now a limited release product. It is restricted to select partners for approved use cases and should not be used for new integrations without guidance from PayPal.


You can use the GetVerifiedStatus API to retrieve the status of a PayPal account. You’ll need to provide the following account information:
