Verify phone number outside of US


Verify phone number outside of US

Hello, I have accidentally removed a bank on my paypal account, and when i was trying to link it back, it is asking me to verify my previous U.S phone number. However, I have moved out of the states for a year now and no long hold that number. What are other ways that I can verify? or to link back my bank?

Paypal is country specific so if you move countries you have to open another paypal account in the country you reside in and add an address / phone number / bank accounts / cards from within that country.

You should really withdraw any funds / resolve issues / remove cards and bank accounts before you move countries. If you don't then you may have problems doing so once you have moved and may need to contact customer services for help to resolve things.

There are some exceptions as some bank accounts can be linked to specific Paypal accounts in some countries.
