What does it mean if a seller or buyer is Verified or Unverified?

Verification increases the security of our payment network for sellers and buyers. Verification gives PayPal additional evidence of a member's identity and lets others know that you have completed this process.

Account holders become Verified when they complete our verification process. To become verified, you need to add and confirm your credit card or bank account.
