I have an unverified Paypal account..I rarely get any credit card payments..I don't send any too. So I have not yet verified my Paypal account..How about you? Do you have a verified Paypal account or an unverified one?

I have a verified paypal account. I used to be very active ebay member and having a verified paypal account was a must. Nowadays i hardly use my paypal account.

I have a verified one as some of the sites I belong to dont allow unverified ones. Its easy enough to verify your account in the UK but I am sure in some parts of the world it is more difficult.

I have a verified paypal account. I use paypal alot when I recieve payments from my online money making sites. I got it verified so that I could transfer the money directly into my bank account. its really quite easy to do and im glad paypal is around because i think it is an awesome way to buy things online and to recieve money.

I have an unverified one, as I still need to apply for a credit card. I'm glad you started this discussion as I have a question of my own regarding PayPal. Would your account still work if your account is unverified? Do you still receive payments from it? I'm still new to this and still have much to learn so I'd be greatful for any additional info on that one. Thanks!

it is better to have a verified one as some sites only pay into verfied accounts. Depending where you are in the world you are it is easy to do.

i have a verified paypal now and i am fine using it cos i can send and received payment. what about yours? can you make payments? i have an unverified Alertpay and they freezes all activities except receiving cash so i can only accumulate money but not used it till i verified the account which is a real troublesome as i need to find a scanner to scan my ID and send it to them.

No i don't have a verified paypal or alertpay account. I can't afford a credit card now and also they need proof of your working. You need a job to get it which i don't have now. But i will verify it when i'll receive any payment from my lot by my visa debit card

I have a verified account with paypal because it is necessary for me to withdraw the funds that I have. So far, it was so hassle-free and easy.

I am having an unverified paypal account. Some transactions are getting with this unverified one.To have a credit card I have to invest a lot of money and some times it leads to some unwanted aspects.

I have a verified PayPal account. Here in the Philippines, you would need to verify it using a Unionbank account.
