Can I receive money before my PayPal account is Verified?

Yes. Once you've confirmed your email address and your PayPal account is activated, you can start receiving payments without being Verified.

There is no receiving limit using PayPal. However, before you become Verified, there is a limit to the amount of money you can withdraw from your PayPal account to your bank account. This limit is based on your country policy.
