Why and how should I verify my PayPal account?

Verifying your PayPal Hong Kong account helps make PayPal even safer for everyone. By getting verified, you not only confirm ownership of your account, but will also gain more credibility with your sellers and buyers.

If your account hasn't been verified, you can choose to add and confirm your credit/debit card or bank account.

  • Confirm your bank account: we’ll send two small deposits to your bank account. You’ll need to check your bank statement and enter the two amounts of the deposits on your PayPal account.
  • Confirm your credit/debit card: we’ll charge your card 4 HKD to send you a 4-digit PayPal code. You’ll need to check your card statement for the code and enter it on your PayPal account. The charge will refund to your card after you've completed confirming this card. The refund may take up to 30 days to appear on your card statement.
