    pay pal question?

    what are your veiws on having paypal verified where it doesnt restrict your useage as much as it does with just 500 dollars useage monthly?
    pros and cons of this? looking to have some means of payment choice and paypal is telling me i am restricted to the amount mentioned.. and if you have another choice of payment method ,i would be intersted in hearing of it.

    Not sure I can answer your question... I've been using PayPal for so long, didn't know if it was verified or not...went over and checked to see... I am verified and it's a pretty easy procedure (I think), not even sure how I did it or when.... I don't know if I've exceeded the $500 monthly usage or not... never had any problem with funds on PayPal...
    as for alternative methods... I can take credit cards via my ProPay account, but I have to manually enter the CC number.... I still use the knucklebuster swipe machine at my shows and sales... I have one of the premium accounts that allows larger per transaction limits... it's a one time per year fee, plus a small percentage of each transaction.
    If you have the right phone, which I don't, you can get a reader that will do the cards electronically, but you have to have the CC in hand...

    Probably doesn't answer your question.....

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    I went to the bank and opened a separate checking account and tied that to my paypal account. I use it for internet stuff. I don't like things tied to my main account.

    Always a good plan... I have a separate account for my woodworking and sales and shows.... all the paypal & propay accounts are tied to it, not to my household account.

    To be a verifyied PAYPAL user, they charge you one dollar on your bank account, then a few days later you receive an e-mail from them with a link. You have to wait until you receive the extract from the bank with the one dollar charge, where there is a code, you follow the link and introduce the mentioned code. Then you are automatically verifyied and they return the dollar that they charged.
    That's all.
    Best regards,
    Toni
