A Guide To PayPal


Recently my account was limited due to what was thought by the system to be a security risk, when in actual fact it was just myself changing the address and contact no. on my frineds mobile phone.

When your Paypal account is limited you cannot:

  • Add/Remove Credit Cards
  • Send/Request money
  • Close your account

What you have to do is go on to the site and fax in your ID confrimining your identity [as they don't take details over the phone due to the fact they cannot check it this way]. Or you can upload your ID directly onto the site using the upload link.  Paypal will then do the rest and send you a confirmation e-mail upon receiving ID and resolving/removing the limitations.

To Avoid this from happeing:

Go to a 'computer' with an internet connection and on your account you can authorise for your mobile to be used to access paypal.


Now that Paypal is mandatory as a payment method always check that the account is working correctly without any limitations before adding your Items to eBay.

People prefer using Paypal because of the security of not having to give bank details to a buyer.
