You will have to verify your account in order to add money to it.. Which will take a few days because they will deposit money to your bank account. If you used your friend's account to verify it then you could withdraw money from it whenever you want so they might not want that.. Why not just get a bank account?

akkpakp, you can search their site for ways to deposit money in your account. One way of depositing money to your account is to connect your paypal account to your bank accout (if you have one). This will also verify your paypal account.

hi @akkpakkp! If you have a Paypal account, you can put some money in it but you cannot withdraw if it is not yet verified. You have to give your own credit card number. I tried using my brother's credit card before but they won't accept. They need your credit card because they will charge .99 cents on it (but this will be refunded later to your PayPal account once you're verified) and you will input the code that they will send together with the transaction which is part of the verification process.

Yes, you can use anybody's debit card or credit card as long as they allow you to do that. But chances are, they will not. So, the best option you have is, by opening your own debit card or credit card account and get them verified with Paypal. If you are not qualified to own a credit card, then open a debit card account. It is easier to open a debit card account than a credit card. If these options seem to difficult for you to do, then working hard in MyLot to earn some Paypal money will be your next option.

If you don't want to expose your bank account, you can apply for a debit card, which is more safe. You can use this debit card for your paypal account.

If you don't have a bank account, then go to your nearest bank and create one, then link that bank account to your paypal account and then you could put some money in it. Or you can get a debit card from paypal then go to the nearest atm machine and put money in there. Of course they charge you but it's not a strong enough fee.
