How Do I Become Verified?

Just Add and Confirm a Bank Account via PayPal. They will send your account two small deposits. Enter these deposits on the PayPal website. Answer a quick confirmation phone call from their third-party authentication service to validate your information, and you're all set.


Get Verified using your credit card

Provide PayPal with your credit card info. They'll make two small charges to your card. Return to PayPal and enter those charges along with the adjacent code as they appear on your credit card statement. PayPal will reimburse you for the charges and you'll be Verified.
