I dont have a bank account , I have a credit card but its prepaid...Im a member of paypal but my account status is "unverified" so i was just wondering if I can still recieve payments through paypal and when i need the money just shop online or request a check... How would that work ?

There is no need to verify your paypal account unless you want to transfer your money to/from your card

I believe you can. I've never had to do it myself because my accounts are verified, but I don't think it's a problem to do it the way you suggest.

I believe you remain unverified until you have a bank account and go through the verification procedure. But I do believe you can still use the Paypal account to shop, send money and receive money. Just make sure you always have funds on the credit card.
