Seller PayPal account verification

Hey, can I/PayPal verify a sellers PayPal account before I purchase from them?

Re: Seller PayPal account verification



Account holders typically link a credit card, bank account, and/or provide SSN where applicable to verify their account. There really isn't a gauge (or no longer a gauge) for other users to see if a PayPal account is 'verified' or not without making a transaction first.


Maybe type their name or PayPal email address if you know it and see if an account pops up for the name or email address on your contact page:


But that is the extent and you'll never know for sure if that is their account so make sure you send any payment when buying as goods and services so you'll have buyer protection.

Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂
