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.

You can verify your account by:

  • Adding and confirming a bank account.
  • Applying for and being approved for a PayPal Credit product.
