Re: Unverified account



To link your PayPal account to your ETF account, follow these steps:

Log in to your FNB account at
Click on PayPal Services and then on Link PayPal Profile.
Follow the instructions to link your accounts. You will need to sign in to your PayPal account to confirm that you are the account holder.

After linking your PayPal account to your ETF account, follow these steps to transfer funds to your ETF bank account from your PayPal account:

Log in to your FNB account at
Click on PayPal Services and then on Withdraw from PayPal.
Enter the transfer amount in USD dollars. (Please check that your PayPal balance is sufficient to make the transfer.)
Follow the instructions to confirm the exchange rate, the Rand amount you will receive, and the Transaction Terms and Conditions.
You will be directed to PayPal to sign in and verify the amount you are transferring to your ETF account.
Then you will be redirected to the FNB site. Your funds will be transferred to your bank account within 3 to 6 business days.

What you have posted below does not help with the problem as you are just redirecting us to the same problem over and over.


FNB system claims the Paypal account is not verified and that we need to verify the actual PayPal account, which in my case i have already done in order to receive payment.


Now i cannot not proceed any further




Re: Unverified account

I sooo agree with you. I have been trying for 2 months now to no avail. The person who wrote how to withdraw funds clearly got verified somehow. I have had every posible person of FNB call me and even they cant help me. Getting verified is impossible.

The wonder of it all is they say" jusy follow these easy steps"    lololol....nothing easy about getting verified thats for sure.

So then, I decide to call the friendly easy advice nr.....due to Covid they dont take phone calls but please go check the community responses to help you.....

The community doesnt have a response.....its a laugh a minute.


Is someone knows how to REALLY get verified PLEASE help.
