How to be a Paypal Verified User?

Getting verified in Paypal is an important step to achieve if you want to continue buying/sending money via paypal.

I only learned about this when I was about to pay my webhost, HostGator, for my hosting plan when I realized I cannot pay anymore because I have exceeded the sending limit and the only way out of it was to become a Paypal Verified User.

Basically this will happen if you want to become a verified paypal user:

  1. Paypal will ask you for a credit card for them to charge you
  2. They will charge you $1.95 in your credit card
  3. Wait for your credit card statement
  4. Check your credit card statement and see an entry that starts with PP *XXXX ….
  5. Input the four digit number (XXXX in step 4) in your paypal account to get verified

Easy isn’t it?

This process made me panic before because I only use paypal to pay for my hosting fees. Good thing I applied for a credit card just late January 2010 else I would not have been able to pay for my bills and we can say goodbye to this blog =(

  1. business intelligence data says:

    In order to become a verified user use must have a banking account number and a routing number. your savings account should have a routing number. It listed on the bottom of checks right beside the account number. But this is how you get verified by paypal.

  2. Yup, also had my Paypal account verified. Pano mo nga pala na-encash Paypal mo? Like, pag may earnings ka and people send money to your Paypal account, how do you get the money? Still haven’t tried that 😉
