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.

Cookies help us customise PayPal for you, and some are necessary to make our site work. Cookies also let us show you personalised offers and promotions, both on and off our site. Of course, you're in control. You can manage your cookies at any time.
