Verification of your financial details is one of our security checks to help maintain a more secure network for buyers and sellers. There are two ways you can get verified.
1. Confirm your bank account
Once you’ve added a bank account, we’ll make two small deposits into the bank account provided. This usually takes 3-5 business days. Once you see these deposits in your bank account statement, log in to your PayPal account to enter the two deposit amounts to complete the verification process.
2. Confirm your credit card
Add your credit card to your PayPal account. This generates a 4-digit code on your online credit card statement within 2-3 business days. Log in to your PayPal account to enter the code to complete verification process.
