im under the age of 18, id like to cancel my account and wait to re open one till im 18. i have a balance of about 100$ but its frozen. i need to show a bunch of documents. what do i do?
Well per paypal - "Under age 18, you need your parents assistance. Note, this not PayPal just being mean. When you open a PayPal account, you are agreeing to a binding legal contract. Before an individual can enter into a binding legal agreement known as a contract, he or she must meet the legal contract age." So maybe your parents can help you out? Why is your money frozen exactly?
I'm sorry to hear about the account limitation! I wanted to jump in to save some effort on the part of your parents. Since they're not the account holder listed on the account, they won't be able to influence the outcome of the limitation. It's not necessary for them to call.
If you contact PayPal and let them know that you are not 18, they can help you with the next steps and let you know what to expect regarding the disbursement of the funds on the account. You can reach customer support by Facebook, Twitter, or phone or email.
I hope this helps!
