Under 18, how to withdraw funds.

I earn money selling my old clothes and shoes, and I have around £1200 in my paypal balance. When I sent in my passport they said Im 17 years old and that I am underage which is true but I now have the problem of having money that I cant withdraw, does anybody know what steps I can approach. Kind regards, Karim.

As you broke paypal rules and opened a paypal account under 18 then you won't be able to if paypal have limited it.

But I need to money very urgently, my parents want me to get the funds bacl immediately is there no way I can resolve this? Surely they should let me withdraw my money at least?

Nope, the money you 'earnt' was by using paypal underage so funds are normally released at 180 days as long as you are 18 then.

Ive read up on cases where they have given people withdrawals on request but is it not possible I can do it either.

Call them up and explain that you opened up an account underage and that your sorry and it won’t happen again and ask for your funds back

@kernowlass Even if he/she broke the rules it's still a minor and legally you're not supposed to withold money from someone underage. Might as well consult a lawyer. If the user lied about their age that's bad, but still sent in their ID. They are under no obligation since they cannot legally sign contracts. Only thing PP can do is ban them, but they have to release that money.

Nope they don't.

As the 'account' was illegally made then the funds are equally so UNTIL that person is 18, they can then open a paypal account legally and transfer the funds from their other limited account.
