i have my paypal premier account. but i did not confirm a credit card in my paypal account. when i try to verify my paypal, it said that it needs a credit card confirmation. is it really needed to have a credit card to be confirmed? can i still use my paypal account in shopping online? can i still use it in shopping in e-bay? please help me guys.

Hi Ulrac, I have a paypal premier account and I can tell you that you can still recieve payments or money online to your paypal premier acct. You just can't withdraw your money without confirming it with a credit or debit card. You can spend the money online though but it has a $100 limit. If you exceed that you need to verify your account. :) Hope this helps. BTW, what country are you from? Services vary from country to country. If you tell me your country I could do a little research for you.

Hi,there! You can use paypal without verifying. There's no problem. You can use your paypal account to receive money from others or send money to others.But there's a limitation of the money that you can withdraw from paypal if you don't confirm with a credit card. I don't remember it too well,but it seems to be $500.If you wanna withdraw more than that,you may need to confirm with your credit card.If there's money in your paypal,then you can shop online in e-bay. Have a good day and best regards!

You need to verify the card so that it is not someone who found (or stole) the card and is trying to take money out of an account that he/she does now won. They are just trying to be safe with your money.

Yes but you buy things using money to your bank account or transfer money from paypal to your bank account unless you add a card. It's not difficult you have to verify it so it takes a couple of days but is worth it if you use paypal a lot on ebay etc.

I believe you must use a credit card to confirm your paypal. As far as I know the only thing that you cannot do if your account is unconfirmed is that you cannot withdraw your money from there. may be someone else would have better knowledge about this. Anyway, why don't you get a Visa debit card and use that to confirm your account. There is no need to get an actual credit card.
