I have on paypal account. I live in India. My paypal account is still not verified. I am opening a new account in my local bank here. It is still not completed. But I have made a request for payment to my employer and he is processing my request. My question it - Will it get deposited to my account or not as my account is unverified? If it gets deposited then can I spend it through paypal? Does it require any extra fee for unverified account? Please share your experiences about paypal account.

yes, you can receive payment but you won't be able to withdraw it. fees are as per transactions and varies according to countries.

it's not good since paypal will just use your money hehehe... think of the interest that you should be getting now in your bank... verify it now...

Well do you have any credit card? Do you withdraw your money to credit card? If yes then you will get paid. Other wise you will no get paid till your account is verified. So without credit card verified is must to get paid from paypal.

Thanks dreamsharmin for your response. I have no credit card. My bank account is also not done so I can't verify it right now. Currently I just want to receive payment in it and I will withdraw it after I link my bank account to it. Couldn't I only receive payment? I don't want to withdraw it now. I will do that later.

You can get payment from other sites to paypal. But you can not get it to your bank account.

Yes you can still receive money if you are using a paypal account that is unverified. But, the withdrawal limit is rather low. You can always verify your paypal using a debit card which is faster and simpler, since you can readily view your transaction online with it. As per my experience, I think they charge alittle more (but im not sure) if you are unverified. And practically for online purchases, online merchants tend to be more cautious with dealing unverified accounts. So you might need to send verification stuff in if you wish to use your paypal as means of purchasing stuff online.

i have an account on paypal and also it is an unverified also... for my info. you will withdraw in bank of the Philippines and bank of u.s. it have a minimum payout if you want to request a withdraw. but i cant try to withdraw because the minimum payout is $10 or 500php. and i think you can withdraw to your bank although it is unverified or verified. take care always my friend.

I have a paypal account as well and i don't have a credit card. Luckily, I have a friend who lended me her credit card and my account was verified. They need to have a credit card because they will charge you for a dollar just to get it verified. After whcih, you will be receiveing a verification number from your bank statements and that's the number that you will enter. They will credit the $1 charge back on your paypal account. But if your problem is tha, you don't have any credit card, you can ask for a debit card from your bank that will be link on your paypal. I hearn union bank has one. You can enquire it from your local bank. Anyway, you can still receive the money in your paypal even if it is not verified. You can still transfer it to your bank but you can't use it in buying things on-line.

My friend you should verify your paypal account so that you could get your earnings on your paypal. in my experience i have money on my paypal but i cannot get it first.. -_- because i the bank did not give me my card for 1 year.. huhuhu.. so i waited and complain until such time they have given me.. that is also the time i verified my paypal and withdrawn it into my card

Hi pal, Whats the use of only receiving money when u cannot use it. You sure can receive money without your paypal account being verified but you cannot transfer your earnings. So get a bank account fast or a credit card and get your paypal account verified. To get your paypal account verified it costs you a small fee but do not worry and go ahead and start earning.

no you could not receive money in your hands but yes any money could be received in your paypal account, but you could not withdraw that money. you can verify your account by providing them the pan card number of yours and also you can attach your bank account branch you want to get money transferred. and your account will be verified.

My paypal account is not yet verified but I can still receive payments from my employer. I am still waiting for the debit card that I will use to link and verify my paypal, which will be after 7 days. then after that, I will withdraw it to my other bank account. I check my paypal once in awhile to see if the balance is still the same, and so far, it is. I am excited for the debit card and cannot wait to withdraw my money:)
