How You Verify Your PayPal Account?

PayPal is the most popular payment processor in the world. The LuckScout club also uses PayPal as the primary payment processor. The PayPal users need to verify their account using a credit card. However, for those who do not have a credit card, several verification methods are available. For me, I use an electronic debit card issued by my bank. What about you?

i do use the usual process of using a credit card. I think the only options are bank account, credit card or debit. What is the reason people cannot obtain a credit or debit card? These are surely the easiest things to obtain

Ahmad Khasan replied 3 months ago

In some countries, like in Indonesia, the normal debit card is not available for electronic use.

Yes, I definitely use my electronic visa card. But, I noticed that, you have to contact your bank first, and they enable it for use to pay online services.

Ahmad Khasan replied 3 months ago

I see. So they activate the card for electronic use first right?

Jackson Mugarura replied 3 months ago

True, I guess some bank need your request first, before they activate it for use in purchasing online goods and services, as is the case with some banks here.

Yes I am the same I use multiple credit cards linked to my Paypal account. I can certainly appreciate that there are different banking regulations around the world and I have noticed that some of our African colleagues have been saying that they are unable to use Paypal so it is certainly tough in various parts of the globe.

Ahmad Khasan replied 3 months ago

Yes, the banking services also vary from country to country. The problem for people in the developing countries is that their bank does not facilitate electronic use of debit card by default. Also, the credit card owner number is low.

Jackson Mugarura replied 3 months ago

You’re very right Khasan.

They usually send verification link to your email address to ascertain whether you are the owner or alternatively send a code to your phone number that would expire 10 minutes

It very important to verify your PayPal account. Once done, it means that your account is free for restrictions placed on non verified accounts such as lower sending amount and higher fees. You can set this status on your account by providing your bank details (accounts, credit cards or debit cards) to PayPal.

For it to be successful, your bank must enable your debit or credit card for online payment and finally you must have enough money in your account

Interesting the challenges everyone has especially in the less developed countries. I suppose we always take it for granted and presume everyone has access.

Verification of PayPal account is done with phone number that is linked to the PayPal account.

Ahmad Khasan answered 3 months ago

Kenneth Ogbonnaya & Leno Jean Pierre — How is that possible? I don’t see how phone number can be use for paypal verification?
 
Gareth White — Yes, I think the internet has still a lot of room to grow in developing countries. It is the number one reason that I was not using Paypal. Only after my bank issued electronic debit card I can use Paypal for transaction.

Leno Jean Pierre replied 3 months ago

I will check to know exactly what kind of verification it was. as I don’t have any cards or Bank account here in Morocco.It was the main reason that I couldn’t use PayPal for online business.
The only option possible that I have is to fund my account through someone else Who has PayPal. Then I send tha person his money through another payment system :skill, Nettler, Prefect money, or bitcoin.

Eli Davis Keinamura — Thank you. But I asked about the type of card you used for Paypal verification.
 
Nnaemeka Victor — Yes. The debit card must be eligible for electronic use.

Ahmed Khasan –  Maybe for clarity, most electronic cards like Visa, MasterCard etc, when liked with your PayPal account can be used to access online services using even your smart phone. But in most cases one has to first contact his or her issuing local bank to activate it the card to be able to it for online payments.

Yes I have received my payment via paypal. I have noticed that paypal is getting a little more security conscious as its asking for additional security verification now.

Hey, Top earners in this October, do we have to paye for thé november fees or they have already deducted November fees in our money. I need clear explanation please.

Ahmad Khasan answered 3 months ago

Jackson & Victor — I see. It seems that currently, in Nigeria, PayPal is available only for sending money. I think both of you will receive money by wire transfer on January and June each year.
 
Leno — Have you verified your PayPal account? Yes, we have to paid the membership fee for November. If you have paid it in October, then it will automatically paid in November. Be sure that your PayPal balance is sufficient to pay the fee.

What I realized is that, maybe verification process could vary from country to country. I thought that I had verified my account sometime back but now I have realized that the process isn’t complete could take me some more time.

I know that I had not verified my identity previously and I had to do this to access our first payment. I had to load up my drivers licence and a bank statement and this went through in a matter of hours.

Jackson — Do you use a credit/debit card for verification process?
 
Edward — Yes, it is a standard procedure of verification, and ID card and proof of address. It seems that the process is not too complicated in Australia.

I verified using my bank debit card,though my verification means nothing. Paypal is not allowing residents of Nigeria to receive payment.
