Account Limitations: What You Need to Know


Re: Account Limitations: What You Need to Know

What one needs to know is that PayPal is the business partner from hell. They will lie cheat and steal your money.  


Constant run around. if you get a " your funds are ready for withdrawal " after the redicuously long 180 days they hold funds, don't count on it!


All the withdrAwal and edit account info remains locked. This is just another attempt to probe your info. Paypal is the most notorious banking crook in the business

Re: Account Limitations: What You Need to Know

Got my account limited today. I occasionally buy stuff from eBay with my PayPal account. Now they ask me for my passport scan and etc. I'll just start buying from AliExpress and alike. I did not have any funds on my PayPal account. Sucks, because it's very untimely, I plan my wedding, and wanted to buy some minor stuff, which is not available locally.

I'm not even sure if it's legally sound, because I'm not a US citizen. And what's the point of this step, while they have my banking info already. I've only encountered this kind of "treatment" on shady betting/poker/bitcoin websites, which I stay away from.

Anyway, will not use paypal anymore, unless there's some holy grail selling on eBay which I will absolutely need.

I advise for everyone to do the same I guess.

Re: Account Limitations: What You Need to Know

My personal account has been limited. I had recently moved so uploaded a scan of the letter provided by the transport authority as I didn't have the sticker to update my licence at the time. Paypal emailed to tell me that I needed to upload the back of my licence. I can now do that however in my resolution centre the section where I need to re-sumbit proof of my address is still greyed out and it says "submitted for review". i need Paypal to reset this so that I can do it again. 


Is there another section where i can upload new information? Or do i have to wait for Paypal to update my account so that I can fix it? 

I have messaged Paypal and they have been unhelpful and told me to go through the process again, which is impossible as outlined above. 


How do i get around this and supply the back of my licence?


Re: Account Limitations: What You Need to Know

try their Facebook page and message them on there

they are quicker than going through e mail to Patpal

i found them helpful so give them a try


Re: Account Limitations: What You Need to Know

We should probably look into some sort of class action as I am in the same boat with a lot of money sitting without resolution on which Im paying interest. Very frustrating indeed

Please advise me how?


Thank you and looking for the reply.




Removing limitations

 If your PayPal account is limited, here’s what happens:

  1. We’ll email you to let you know –  we’ll ask you to log in to your PayPal account and go to the Resolution Centre for details on how to resolve the issue quickly, usually by providing information.
  2. Once you’ve submitted the information required, we’ll review and reply via email.
  3. We’ll remove the limitations once we have verified your account. At times, limitations can be removed by simply changing your security questions and password.

Here are the types of information and documents we may need from you:

- Supplier’s invoice with contact information

This helps us determine the inventory source and validate that you have the items that you’re selling in stock.


- Payment information

When an invoice is unavailable, we’ll review the following information about your payments:

  • The item or service that was sold
  • The buyer’s name and shipping address
  • Proof of shipment to verify that an order was delivered

- Shipping or Tracking information

This helps us to verify that customer orders are being fulfilled.


- Proof of business
This provides evidence of a valid business registration and business ownership.


- Information for India sellers
This is to comply with our India regulatory obligations. Provide a valid PAN, a local bank account and the purpose code in your PayPal account task board.


- Proof of address such as bank statement or utility bill, Proof of identity such as passport or driver’s license
This helps us verify your identity when there is unusual account activity or to comply with regulations.


Once you’ve submitted your information, look out for any more emails from us as we may need additional details. We’ll do our best to confirm your information and remove the limitation within 2 business days, but sometimes it can take a little longer.


Quick Tip: If your PayPal account is limited, don’t open a new account. It could be traced back to the limited account.  It’s always best to resolve the limitation. We will guide you through it and restore full access to your PayPal account as quickly as possible.




Re: Account Limitations: What You Need to Know

my money was hold for 180 days, My Paypal account get limit access, 
Paypal investigated team said because I got paid from Redbubble and Redbubble was sue (ps. about $70 I got paid from RB) But they hold my whole $1900 without any clearly reason. 

The agent said everybody who got paid from RedBubble will be hold money like me. 
After that I have ask other seller ( or artist ) on RedBubble about their Palpal account, They said their Paypal Acc is OK so far. 
Why agent told me like that ?

My money come from many website with legal ways. As for my works on Redbubble doesn't violated any copyrights. It's not suppose to be
so I would like to know why this is only happen to me ? Why you hold and limit my account without any reason at all. That don't make any sense.

This is my money please release my whole money and account back to me.

Agent don't allow me to verify myself or explain anything, don't require any documents otherwise I willing to do every ways as I can. 
they said only I can do is waiting. 
But I can't wait because I don't have any bucks to live for now. and I don't do anything wrong.

Please help me this is a big trouble, I feel like this is not fair to me. Because I don't do anything wrong yet PLEASE.

Paypal was always trustable, 
Please don't ignore customer problem,
You need to fix this issue.

please help.
