If you are thinking about doing some online business then probably you’ll be having a Paypal – verified account, because PayPal forces a number of limitations if you don’t do that.
The Un-verified accounts restrictions include,
- USD $ 500 Monthly transaction limit
- no method to save the created payment buttons and so on.
Earlier there was only one method for verifying the paypal account i.e. by linking credit card with paypal. But it was a large issue for the Indian Paypal users, because many of the Indian users are not using the credit card(s) – due to the wrong billing of Credit Card Companies.
But now paypal has realized this problem, and hence Indian Users can now verify their paypal accounts by just linking their bank account with it.
Procedure for implementing it, is available as under :
- Signin to the paypal account. Click onto the Get Verified option (provided at the upper side of the landing page – if you have not verified it yet)
- You will get multiple options to verify the Paypal account, but choose Link My Bank Account option button.
- Now write your name and the bank account number in the respective text-boxes & click on Confirm my bank account option.
After a few days (usually 3-4 days), paypal will deposit 2 little amounts (e.g. Rs. 2.67 and Rs. 1.52) in your provided bank account(s). Check your account after a few (say 5-6) days and then write those deposited amounts in the paypal verification window.
And here you’re done with it.
Now you got the paypal verified account and all restrictions are cancelled from it.
