Account Limited. 180 Day Hold! Can’t link Bank Account/Credit Card

PayPal PERMANENTLY limited my account today and i have $1200+ on hold. As you might all be familiar with already, I was told to wait 180 days. I really can’t wait that long. I worked hard for my money and didn’t do anything wrong for paypal to go this far with my account! 

I was told by someone to link my bank account/credit card because from their experience, in under a month they were able to get their money back (they had the same issue as me). I was going to link my bank account but because of the current issue I have with my paypal account right now, I can’t seem to do that. Does anyone have any solutions? I plan to call customer service but I’m from the Philippines and international calls are really expensive. Please help!! Thank you

If you have been told your Paypal account has been permanently limited then Paypal tends to hold any funds for 180 days. This is the same time frame that buyers have to open Paypal disputes.

If no disputes are opened in 180 days then normally you are allowed to withdraw the funds. That is as long as you are over 18, the account is in your legal name and registered in the country where you reside.

Sometimes they confiscate funds under this policy.

Paypal also may request further documentation from you before you can withdraw those funds.
