Hi mylotters! I am worried about my paypal account. I read about being limited of a paypal account. I am really wondering about this. How will I know if my account is limited? Sorry if the question is so common to you but for me it's not. Thank you very much!

If you don't verify your account you will have limited account, and to verify it you only need to include your credit card or debit card number. You will be charged around 1-2 US dollars but the amount will be included in your paypal account once your account is verified. That's all that I know.

LIke the first response your account can be limited if you haven't had it verified. Also if you had unauthorized purchases that your debating paypal will limit your access. That happened to me a couple of months ago when someone tried to charge something on my account.

Your account has limits if it's not verified. If it is verified it can get limits too if you use like tons of credit cards, they mark your account has fraudulent.

I was not yet familiar with that limitation because I was just new to paypal account. I never know that there is a case like this, I hope this would not happen to me but if it will happen to me maybe I'll not be surprised anymore because I know now. Thanks to you all of you guys! :)

All new PayPal accounts are limited by default, until you verify it like ladysurvivor said. Once verified, the limits are lifted. Why are you so concerned? Did you try to do a transaction and couldn't?
