PayPal verification process
PayPal encourages members to become Verified to increase trust and safety in our community. Similar to financial institutions screen their account holders, PayPal's Verification process increases security when you pay parties you do not know. You can get your account verified by help us confirming your credit card or bank account. Once verified, your initial sending and withdrawal limits will be removed.
- When you receive a payment - Log in to your account, go to the My Account tab, and click the History sub tab. Find the payment in question and choose the status link (for example, "Pending") in the Status column. This will take you to a payment details page. Next to the sender's name, you will find that person's Verification status (Verified, Unverified).
- When you send a payment - When you send a payment, a reputation link is provided where you may view the recipient's status (Verified, Unverified).
Note: PayPal's verification process does not constitute an endorsement of a member or a guarantee of a member's business practices. You should always consider other indicators when evaluating members, including length of PayPal membership and reputation scores (on eBay or other shopping sites, if applicable).
