So does paypal have to be verified in order to recieve money from mylot,ptc websites or any other ones. I really don't know if you do have to get your paypal account verified or not. If you do how do you get your account verified. Please share anything you know because to be honest I don't have a clue in mind.

Yes. You have to verify it with your ATM bank card account number. Because if you don't, you won't get your money from paypal. What happens is...you receive money from paypal coming from your online earning sites...then you request transfer from paypal to your atm account....after 2-3 days, you can withdraw your earnings from a nearby atm machine.

Oh well that's if you want money to go into your atm bank card, but I want to use the money that I earn online on my paypal to go shopping on ebay. I think I can do that I hope.

You have to have a bank account verified with Paypal to send money to Ebay. I can use my Paypal Debit card on sites like Amazon, etc, but you can not use it with Ebay.

You do not need to verify your account unless your account is informed that you can not accept the money. Well, I'm not yet to verification my account. You only can send or withdrawal maximum $100 if your account unverified. Just check the limit, every country have different way to set their limit.

Definitely not. You can receive money as much as you want without verifying your account. But I think there is a limit to how much you can send. If you want to convert your paypal money into cold hard cash, or in other words do an electronic transfer, only then you have to verify your account. Link a card or bank account for that

Nope, you can still receive money online though paypal even if its not verified. You will only have a limit of $100.00 on your account though. Verified account has a higher limit of about $500.00. If your expecting to have more than the limit for an unverified account, then sooner or later you have to upgrade it.

I don't think we need to verify our paypal account in order to receive money online. I have been receiving money online without verifying my paypal account. But I haven't withdraw any money from my paypal yet, I have heard from others we can actually get the money even without verifying the paypal account.
