How do I verify my PayPal account?

We only ask you for essential information when you sign up to PayPal, but as you transact with us, we're under a legal obligation to know more about you. When you verify your account, you're proving that you own the financial details added to your account.

To  get verified, go to your account to add and confirm your bank account or, if you prefer, add and confirm your debit or credit card.
