How to Withdraw Money from Limited Paypal Account

After my Paypal account has negative balance due to an online scam, I created a new one and tried to avoid any risk with the new account.

However, after I set up and received money from buyers, it was permanently limited right away and the limitation cannot be appealed. In the email Paypal sent me, they said they decided to close my account because of security issues. There would be no problem if my account balance is zero as I could get rid of that account. I just received nearly $1,000 from my online revenue sources and then Paypal closed it immediately. My money is still there but the balance is frozen and I couldn’t send or withdraw it.


I contacted Paypal again to ask for my money and it was another frustrating experience. My money would be held for 180 days (6 months) and Paypal promised that they would sent me an email when the balance was available to withdraw. But it never happened and I almost forgot about the incident.

I had to contact Paypal by myself again and they sent me an email to verify that my Paypal funds are eligible for withdrawal now. They also mentioned that my account is still limited, that means I still can’t send or request money, receive payments, add funds and close the account. The positive side is that I can withdraw funds from my account now, and it is the same process as I did earlier. I can either transfer to a bank account, request a check or get a Paypal Debit Mastercard. Here is how I withdraw the funds to my bank account.

1. Log in to PayPal account.

2. Navigate to My Account ->  Withdraw.

3. Click ‘Transfer to bank account’, the minimum amount you can withdraw is $1.

4. Enter the amount you want to withdraw, I filled in every penny of course.


I tried to add another bank account but I received the error message: “Sorry, your last action could not be completed“. Fortunately, I already added a bank account to the Paypal account earlier, so this is not a big problem. If you have the issue, you can request a check anyway.


5. Click ‘Continue’.

6. Review the confirmation page and click ‘Submit’.

Now I can really forget about the account and Paypal also sent me a confirmation saying “it usually takes 3-4 business days for transfers like this to go through.

Do you have the same issue with your Paypal account? I’d love to hear your experience.

    Hello Tuan Do,
    I can’t receive money in my limited (unvarified) paypal account. I can’t varify it as it doesn’t support in our country. Can you give any solution please?

    • Tuan Do

      If Paypal is not available in your country, you will not be able to withdraw money to your bank. You can create a U.S. Paypal account to receive money but it can’t be verified. I recommend you to look for alternatives until Paypal is supported there.

      • inderjeet singh

        my account got limited and my money is on hold will you be able to help me so that I can withdraw my money before that

        • Tuan Do

          I don’t really understand your situation. Can you clarify with more details?

      • Hello my paypal account was limited due to a false information on my part. I said i was 15 years of age instead of 18 years old. So the lady in the call put my paypal account in a limitation. I still have over 500$ in that account and its frozen like i can not pay. What should i do? How can i send money with a limit account?

        • Phillip A

          Did you get to fix the problem and how I am in the exact situation right now.

      • Jonny

        Hi Tuan, I was wondering if you’d be able to help me with my issue. My paypal account has been limited and they are asking for identification. I’m only 17 at the moment and the paypal was created when I was 16. The thing is, I turn 18 in 4 months so I was wondering what the best solution for me would be.

        I understand this is quite an outdated post but I’m just looking for any help I can get.


        • faye

          Hi Jonny, i have the exact same problem and wonder if you were able to fix this?

    • Sabbir

      Yes, you can withdraw money if you register the account selecting the country as US. You will need a payoneer master card and they offer US checking account from Bank of America. You will have to add that bank account details and withdraw after 180 days waiting period.

    Xin chào, Tuan Do. Gần đây tài khoản kinh doanh của tôi cũng bị limit vĩnh viễn, và đã gần 6 tháng trôi qua. Paypal thông báo sẽ cho phép chúng tôi rút tiền vào tháng 8. Tuy nhiên tài khoản của tôi lại bị ngược tên, nên nếu rút về ngân hàng sẽ không xác nhận, tôi đã liên hệ với Paypal để đổi tên nhưng không được. Bạn có kinh nghiệm gì về việc này có thể chia sẻ giúp chúng tôi được chứ.

    Cảm ơn bạn.

  3. charry

    So you’ve waited for 6 months and then withdraw the money?
    So in that case, after you withdraw the money, did you delete your account?

    • Tuan Do

      Hi Charry,
      Yes I waited 6 months to withdraw my money. And as my account is limited permanently, I can’t do anything with it.

      • Aces

        Hey there, My paypal was limited too but I dont have a card link on it so do i need to add card on my paypal so that I can withdraw my funds? Its been over 180 days since my paypal got limited and they said i am able to withdraw the funds.

      • James

        Hey Tuno,

        How to delete permanently limited paypal account?

        • Tuan Do

          Unfortunately, it is not possible to delete a PayPal account while it is limited. You must resolve all cases to close your account.

  4. Aces

    Hey there, My paypal was limited too but I dont have a card link on it so do i need to add card on my paypal so that I can withdraw my funds? Its been over 180 days since my paypal got limited and they said i am able to withdraw the funds.

    • Tuan Do

      Sure you can add a card and withdraw your funds now.

  5. liat

    paypal blocked my account because i opened to many disputs, and now i cant withdraw my money, what can i do?

    • Tuan Do

      How Paypal blocked your account?
      If they locked it because of suspicious activities, you should contact them as soon as possible to find way to withdraw your money.

  6. alice

    Hi Tuan Do,
    Paypal just limits my account and they require me to send them invoice and proof of delivery. However, I sold a intangible product which is an Internet account. It is impossible for me to have invoice or any proof of delivery. So if I wait for 6 months, can I be able to withdraw to my bank account? Thanks in advance.

    • alice

      Hi Tuan Do, I just found out my case is more complicated that I mailed Paypal that I sold an intangible products but I just recognize that my buyer chooses the family and friend type to pay for me like sending money as a gift. Therefore, I don’t know what to do now. Paypal havent reply my mail yet but I’m afraid that I will lose the money when they find out the mismatch. If they request anything later, but I will not response to them so can I still withdraw the money after 6 months? Please help me. Thank you a lot.

    • Tuan Do

      Hi Alice,
      Why don’t you ask your buyer to confirm that he/she received the Internet account? You can also send them any proof such as screenshots of your email conversation. You’d better cooperate with Paypal to solve the case. The funds could be reversed if you wouldn’t provide proof of delivery.
      Hope it helps.

      • alice

        Thanks Tuan Do, I want to ask you further that if it is an Internet account, will it be considered as selling illegally?

    • Tuan Do

      It could violate policy of that service but I don’t think it is illegal. What kind of Internet account are you talking about?

      • alice

        Its a game account. My account now is restored after I sent mails saying that I don’t have both of them and they only need me to provide ID photo. Phew! Hope they will process it smoothly with my withdrawal and no more limitation.

  7. rhyon

    I have sold an item in ebay and received money with paypal and provided tracking number to out of country and paypal can’t track it but i know the person has item just wont tell paypal so they sent them my 442 dollars to the buyer amd now i dont have my item or money how can i get the tracking number to update from am international location because they wont check …..and on another paypal account i have it is limited because i have to provide information that i dont have like invoices of where i got my items from and its impossible for me to get them because of where i got them from amd they want me to send a utikty bill to confirm my address and i have over 800 dollars that i desperately need how can i get it off please help me …please please help

    • Tuan Do

      Hi rhyon,
      Are you using the Global shipping program? If you do, you must have shipped it to eBay shipping center in Kentucky and eBay will take responsibility from there. How can’t you track your package? If the buyer doesn’t receive the package, it is not your fault. Have you contacted eBay support yet?

  8. rhyon

    Yes the buyer has it but wont let paypal know or ebay
    and the shipping wont update on internet and paypal sent the buyer back the money so they have both so i lost over 400 dollars and a new iphone 5c and i dint know how to contact the other shipping company besidds usps because thats who i shipped it with and they said the other shipping company has to update shipment in internet

  9. migz

    bro! same problem but the twist is that i didnt verified the bank account i registered on paypal before they hold my account for 180 days. So 180 days gone by, paypal emailed me that i can withdraw my funds so i tried to open my paypal click withdraw and clicked the unverified bank account i registered then boom! i cant withdraw the money, it always notifies me to eneter the 4-digit code sent to my bank account. well the problem here is they closed my account but paypal states that i can withdraw my remaining balance. How the hell can i withdraw my money?

    • Tuan Do

      That’s horrible.
      Can you add and verify a new bank account now? When my account was limited, I still could add another bank account. Let me know if it helps.

  10. johnly

    how to remove my limited in my paypal?
    its ok i will add another bank account so that i can withdraw my money in paypal?
    please help me how i can solve it.

    • Tuan Do

      No you can’t withdraw your money while your account is limited.
      You will have to figure out why your account is limited and fix it.

  11. Makatas

    Same – got permabanned.
    In paypal email it says, they reviewing account every 30 days, and if possible releases funds to withdraw. Today(after 30 days) i got that kind of paypal emai, but when i go withdraw to card, system doenst let me, there is only Add Card | Currency Converter, sections. Why?

    • Tuan Do

      Did paypal allow you to withdraw your money? Do you see your existing card in your account?
      It should show up there. Try adding the card again.

      • Makatas

        Yes i got email, that they let me withdraw all the money in account(that means i didnt owe anything to anyone when got banned). And yes i see my card here. Tried add it again like you said, but nothing happens.

    • Tuan Do

      You should contact Paypal then, this could be a technical issue.

  12. My account access is limited and Paypal is asking me to upload the CC Statements of all my previously linked CC’s. Here’s why i might end up with my account getting closed.
    1. One of CC’s i have used with my Paypal, is currently linked to another Paypal account (which is unverified + limited)
    2. All the CC’s i used were Virtual. They are asking for CC statements but they don’t consist of my name or address. Hence, they may not consider these statements as valid.

    Now, my only pain is i have $1000 Paypal balance, how to get it (by hook or by crook) ?
    Is there any hope that i will regain full access to my account again? Can i make them understand via email ? Any method that will work ? Please guide me with something. I am going to receive more payments on my Paypal (more than $2500) in few days.
    Kindly help.

    • Tuan Do

      It is almost impossible to gain full access to your account again. I heard some people were successful by creating fake account statements but it is very rare. You might need to link to your real credit card to withdraw your money, there are a lot of risks using those virtual credit cards.

      • Well, i restored full access to my account and that’s how i did it?
        I rang the Paypal helpline and there was this lovely lady who assisted me. I provided her with my Case ID and told her that i am having a problem in verifying my card. I told her that MY CARD ISSUER DOESN’T PROVIDE STATEMENTS MENTIONING NAME OR ADDRESS, HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO UPLOAD SUCH DOCUMENTS WHICH DOESN’T EXIST. And her reply was so cute!! She told me to upload some other documents which should mention my name and address instead of the credit card statement. I just did what she said and within 9 hours my account access was restored 🙂 🙂 🙂
        P.S – I didn’t told her that i am using a Virtual Credit Card, i am sure they are allergic to VCCs

        • Tuan Do

          Wow, that’s awesome.
          Thanks for sharing your experience. It will be very helpful for Paypal users with VCCs.

          • If possible, add this info inside your article, people do not read all comments.

    Hello, pls help me with this question, I have 945$ in my paypal, then send 20$ to a friend as gift, them immediately transfer 925$ to my bank.. after 2hours, paypal complete my transfer and says the fund will be ready on the 25th of sep 2014… Bt my money is always in my account the next day b4.. And paypal now limit me account immediately bcos I send 20$ to someone.. And I try to appeal bt it was denied. paypal then send me a message that I will have to wait for 180days to withdraw or have acess to my money.. My question now is that, will paypal still deposit the 925$ I have transferred and that has been completed on my payal acc despite the limitation? Am now expecting the money in my payoneer account, will they still credit may payoneer account or where is now my money? My friend that I send 20$ too have received his money cash yesterday and am yet to receive my… Pls reply me asap bcos my mind is not settled. All my transactions are all legit

    • Tuan Do

      It takes longer to process money withdrawal. You should wait a few days to see money in your account. If your account is limited after the transaction is completed, the money should be in your bank account soon.

  14. Jacqueline

    I have sent money over to an account that has been limited – unfortunately the buyer cant send the money back to me and is saying I’m the one that needs to issue refund? (how can I since I am the buyer not the seller)

    How can I get my money back 🙁

    I have already emailed PayPal about my issue

    • Tuan Do

      You can file a dispute on Paypal and they will help you get your money back very fast.
      Hope it helps.

  15. Su

    My PayPal account has been limited and they have sent me an e-mail saying I could withdraw part of my funds. The problem is I don’t have any bank account attached to the account and it doesn’t let me add one because the account is limited. What can I do about this?

  16. Ngio

  18. Md Aktarul Islam


    I am from Bangladesh. My country does not support paypal. I opened a Malaysia paypal account.

    I got limited after few days ! As it is fake paypal account. I hope to regain my account access is impossible.

    But I want to withdraw funds from my paypal account. I have around $450 on my account.

    I have Payoneer USA checking account. Can you withdraw to my virtual bank account ?

    I am a bit confused. I am from Bangladesh. Paypal is from Malaysia . Bank account should be from USA.

    I want immediate help.

  19. Helen

    my account was limited (background info: I live in the U.S., my card is is linked.) However, before it was limited, I received a pending money statement. After it was limited, the transaction went through, and I have the money in my account now. How do I take it out with a limited account? I read similar accounts up above, do I have to wait six months?

  20. Auction Essistance

    The only way you can withdraw from a limited Paypal is to wait the 180 days. However, if you have sent payment to that account from another Paypal that you have access to. Simply refund and you should have access to the money.

  21. Olga

    The same happened to me, I used my husbands paypal account and added my bank account to his paypal. After that both mine and my husband’s account were permanently limited because of fraudulent activity! that is absurd, I have not called them yet because Im currently out of the US. Im guessing I am not using paypal ever again!! the thing is I have a balance of 500 on my husbands account and won’t let me withdraw it. My question is why would they wait until I received a payment to restricted instead of doing it before, how convenient for them!!

    • Tuan Do

      Paypal is trying to make its service more secure but sometimes it seems too aggressive. You should call or email them as soon as possible to explain the situation, it hardly worked for me but you should try if you don’t want to wait 6 months to withdraw your money.

  22. christipher grant

    they told me i could get my money out on dec thec 9th they have held my money for over 18 months and a girl when i rang up told me it iant my money and thats that so they have £2.350 plus i have told them now i am going to take them to cout this is total bullshit and told them i am adding 12.0/0 percent every day they then told me i could get my money out again now i am being accused of a customer complaint more bullshit so how the hell can i get my money and they now have the nerve to ask me to change to a buiseness account are they for real

  23. Happi

    Hi! I just followed your instructions and I was indeed able to withdraw the money. However, it’s still pending. Did you successfully received the money thru your bank account within 2-4 days? I linked my paypal acct to my atm savings account. Thank you.

    • Tuan Do

      Hi Happi,
      Yeah sure I received it after a couple of days. You might need to wait up to 7 days for the withdrawal to complete.

  24. Michael

    Hi There,

    My PayPal account has been limited due to receiving over $5000 usd in it. They’re asking for a lot of information such as suppliers, invoices, tracking, descriptions.

    I received an email last night saying the funds are now available to withdraw so I signed into PayPal and attempted to withdraw but received a note saying you can’t withdraw on a limited account.

    Why did they send me the email saying the funds are now available to withdraw when they’re not?

    Thanks so much would appreciate any advice you can give 🙂

  25. hakim

    Hey , my paypal account is limited due to age restrictions. Will I be able to withdraw my money after 6months also? And can you remove a bank account or card from PayPal on a limited account?

  26. Yuhong

    Can I get my money back from PayPal? They limited my account and it says limit my account for 180 days. I have $2000 in my PayPal account. I was selling clothes on eBay and they said I was selling brand clothes so they restricted my account and asked me to provide receipt. But I bought from China while I was traveling. My cousin was working at garment company and she sold me some left overs. I paid cash to her and there is no receipt I can provide. Please help me if I still can get my money back?

    • Tuan Do

      As your account was permanently limited, you will have to wait 6 months to receive your money.

    Can i add a bank account in a limited paypal account? If i can how to add a bank in limited bank account? Please help me.

  28. Tyron

    Hey Tuan, My Paypal Is Limited But I Can Withdraw My Funds . I Used My Paypal Account With A Fake Name Because Of My Security , How Do I Withdraw ? If Paypal Send Me A Check I Can’t Use It Because Of My Name Being Fake , So How Do I Receive My Funds ?

    • Tuan Do

      You will have to try changing your name in this case. Paypal said that they will change name of Paypal account when there is an error, you legally changed your name, or you used a nickname or fictitious name. Good luck.

  29. Mike


    my paypal is limited now and i wish to withdraw after 180 days mentioned above from all yours comments. BUT just now i did see the “Withdraw” button from paypal. may i know where should i click? if that i should link my bank account then just can withdraw? i am dont have US bank account to link even all those bank account to link with paypal. as i not located in USA now. I got the paypal registered during i was in London when i was there for my study. I want to withdraw to my local bank in Asia country. can i do that? pls advice

    • Tuan Do

      Hi Mike,
      You must have a verified bank account in the same country to withdraw your funds. According to what I know, it’s impossible to change the address on your PayPal account to a new country. So I can’t figure out any way to withdraw money to your current Asia country. You can try contacting Paypal then.

  30. Giugiu

    Hello there.
    I added money to my Paypal account using my Citibank Bank Card from Brazil and then I transferred money to my husband’s Paypal and now both of our Paypal accounts have been permanently limited due to “Cash Advance”. How come is it cash advance? They also blocked the money I had left in my account and they say it’ll be blocked for 180 days. They will allow me to withdraw my money after 6 months but what happens to our accounts after 6 months? We are extremely upset about it. We should be able to use our money anyway we want it, specially when we ARE NOT doing anything illegal. it is so frustrating.

  31. alhawari

    Please help me!!!
    i have get this message from paypal
    We’ve limited your account because of the excessive number of claims you’re
    involved in.

    We’ve recently emailed you about this issue. Since our last email, we found
    that your transactions are still resulting in an excessive number of
    claims. This is considered abuse of our Buyer Complaint process and
    violates the PayPal User Agreement.

    after contact paypal , they sendthis email

    We regret to inform you that we’re initiating the closure of your PayPal account because of certain activity that took place relating to your account. This measure is necessary to protect us from potential financial losses.

    Your account balance during the account closure period:

    This decision means we must oversee the appropriate movement of any money currently in your account. A gradual approach to account closure allows us to part ways, while considering any liabilities that may arise. Our aim is to review any valid buyer claims lodged against you. We must allow enough time for claims to be filed as these can take several months to be reported and resolved.

    How will the process work?

    We’ll hold any money currently in your account in accordance with section 2 below. We do this because it provides sufficient time for most claims, such as chargebacks, to be filed by other parties. These claims can result in financial loss. If your account balance is below zero, you’ll have to settle the amount owing on your account to avoid further action.
    Our first review at 30 days from the date of this email will calculate our exposure and we’ll release any excess funds to you at that time for withdrawal. We’ll communicate this to you at the time. This review can result in 3 different outcomes as detailed in sub-sections 2(1)-(3) below. We’ll always communicate the outcome of our reviews to you.
    We’ll release your entire remaining balance to you for withdrawal. Please note that if you choose not to withdraw the money at that point we reserve the right to re-coup any money at the next review; or
    We’ll release a part of your remaining balance to you. If this is the case we’ll inform you about how much money can be withdrawn. We’ll then conduct another review 30 days later that will repeat the process detailed under section 2; or
    We won’t release any funds to you if we deem our exposure to be greater than or equal to your available balance.

    Your account may be reviewed up to 5 times; at 30 day intervals until day 180 from the date of this email. If any money remains in your account at day 180 it will be made available for withdrawal at that point.

  32. Mihailo

    • Tuan Do

      I tried this earlier but you can only link 1 bank account to 1 Paypal account at the same time. You can unlink or close the Paypal account but be careful, Paypal does not allow creating multiple Paypal accounts.

      • Mihailo

        What if i make 3x VCC? is that the same,can paypal see through the VCC?

    I have the same problem. My account got permanently limited yesterday morning. 1st got a mail that they need more info about 2 of my ireceived transactions from February. Posted pictures that they required and let them know via e-mail that I posted the pics on my paypal account and explained they were all gift money from friends to support my living expenses and school fees and I cannot wait 180 days. After an hour I got another e-mail that they do not like another 3 incoming transactions which were from the beginning of this month. These were also gifts. So mailed them again that they cannot be serious about this and repeated what I have said in my last mail, that the money was gift and I also notified my friends about this problem. Got another e-mail this morning repeating they will keep my money for up to 180 days and will review my account every 30 days because I have violated some policy rules! I have not, I have a personal account, not a business one! So I replied to them that this is no way to treat a long term and loyal customer and I feel like I am being discriminated and that my right are denied. They did not even sent me detailed info about how was I supposed to violate the rules! I have let them know that I want to solve this in a friendly manner, but if they do not return my money and make my account normal again, I can and I will contact organizations that will help me and also ask help from lawyers and court if necessary. Waiting for their next reply. But I will not leave this alone since the 353,66€ I had there were all my savings and by receiving gifts I do not feel like I have violated any policy rules!

    Hi ,

    I have received about 1400 usd and withdrew it to my bank account and the transfer has been completed , then after 1 day Paypal froze my account and said that i have to wait 180 days …i do not care as my balance is a 0 , my question is can Paypal do something to prevent me to get my 1400 usd ?


    • Tuan Do

      I know some cases that Paypal did reverse completed withdrawals. Let me know if you have received your money to your bank account.

    • Chris

      Yes PayPal can reverse it . PayPal did for a lot of People who complained about it to me . But they can not reverse that of a Prepaid card , but can reverse that of Bank accounts .

  43. Jonathan

    paypal limited my account and i have $6800 in it so in 5 days time from now it will be exactly 180 days. can i use any USA bank account with any name cos is USA paypal, Secondly will they ask me for Bank statement before i withdraw? cos they asked me bank statement last year during the time they limited it.Thanks would be grateful for answers.

    • Tuan Do

      No they won’t ask for bank statement when you withdraw your funds.

  44. Georgi Kalenderov

    I succeeded to withdraw my money immediately. They have limited my account but your trick get all the work done for two hours. Thank you, Tuan Do!

  45. kenny

    Tuan do . hey PayPal sent me a email saying . “,we recently noticed a pattern of account activity that, in our experience .is usually high risk . restricted activies identified in our user agreement. So basically they going to hold my money for 180days? If I wait 180 I will be able to withdraw my money right? Because my account is limited right now . please help . thank you

    • Tuan Do

      Hi Kenny,
      Your account is just temporary limited. If you can’t resolve the issue, your account will be permanently limited and Paypal will send you an email saying your funds will be available after 180 days.

  46. Abdirauf

    My account is limited i have received an email from paypal saying that they will hold onto the money until 180 days, so my question is that would i get access to the money after the 180 days are over?

  47. Tiger

    I had a PayPal account limited
    So I started up a fake one, with fake name
    But real bank details & cc
    I subsequently started one in my real name
    But my fake one which has my real bank details
    Has now been limited to I can show proof of name
    my account ( the fake one )
    Has $3500 in it that they won’t let me withdraw
    That I transferred from my real name
    As there are no bank details
    Should I come clean & hope for the best ?
    Or is there another way of getting my money ?

    • Chris

      U had to wait for 180 days , or you could possibly make a fake ID as well and send to them with the names on the account to match them up . Did you get the funds already ??

  51. Fred

    Hmm…. i have been using paypal for a very long time, if you register your paypal with fake name and address, there is a way to withdraw your fund after 180days and if you use your real information to register, is very simple to withdraw also after 180days,i used fake details to register and got my money after 180days, i do that all time, i withdraw for people here.

  52. Claus

    My PayPal account has been limited today and I can’t withdraw my money. Where shall I go to request a payout to my bank?

  53. Benigno Mendoza

    Hi Tuan Do,

    I have the same issue as yours. Did you still submitted all the necessary documents that paypal ask you? And what happened to your other paypal with negative balance? Did you pay for it? Can you help me? Because there is no documents I can send paypal to uplift my limitation. Pleas help.

    • Benigno Mendoza

      Hi Tuan Do,

      Please help me. I appreciate your help. Thanks in advance. WIll be waiting for your response.

      Thank you!

    • Tuan Do

      No I never paid for the old account with negative balance. I tried to submit my documents but Paypal told me I have to pay the debt of that account first. So, I’d rather withdraw my money and abandon both of the accounts.

      • Benigno Mendoza

        It helps… thanks!

  54. tea

    Hi Tuan Do,

    Paypal permanently limited my account and cannot be appealed, in violation of PayPal’s Acceptable Use Policy. what can I do now? It did not show that I can wait for 180days to get back my money. Is it I would not get back my money permanently?

    • Tuan Do

      You should contact Paypal and ask for an option to withdraw your money. They will permanently ban your account and send you an email saying you can withdraw your funds within 180 days.
      Hope it helps.

  55. james

  58. Dawn

    Paypal permanently limited my account with over 500 dollars in it. I sent them email to about 20 email addresses telling them I wanted my money and that they could close my account. How long does it usually take them to respond and will I have to wait 180 days or will they usually release money to my bank account before that?

  59. Bob

    You are helping this woman steal money from unsuspecting Westerners. PayPal places holds for a reason. Should you become an identity theft victim you’ll be glad they do.

  69. James Rodrigo


    I have one question, can PayPal be used to send money to friends? Because that’s what I use it for, 1 year now, everything very good . Now all of a sudden they ask for Proof of Delivery and Proof of invoice but how can I have those things? Proof of delivery is that they completed the transfer and the money arrived. Can they ban me for not using PayPal to sell things and just for wire money to friends?

    Thank you

    • Chris

      No , they so at times , but you just need to call them and they will help you resolve this issue in less than not time since you do not have a disoute or received transactions .

  74. Adrian

    I just got my account limited today. I literally just made my first sell and it was automatically limited. I did nothing to get my account limited. They are asking for proof of invoices and tracking numbers but the items I sell are bought from local sellers or just get them from stores. I can’t verify that stuff but they are looking for it. What can I do to resolve this?

    • Tuan Do

      You need to provide them tracking number and invoice of the product you sold. Did you ship it to your customer?

  75. Emy

    Hi , i need help , my account was limited , and PayPal want to verify my Id card , BANK account ,credit card and adress . My credit card was confirmed , But the problem is i dont have full name on PayPal like in id card and i dont have US BANK account , so i can’t confirm it … How can i refund money or confirm bank account ? My account was limited 3-4 days ago..

  76. Mamun Khan

    address exactly as they appear on your PayPal account.

    Valid as proof of address would be a copy of your passport, a utility bill (telephone, mobile phone, electricity, water, gas bill or similar) as well as a credit card or bank statement. The invoice must show your name and address exactly as they appear in your PayPal account and should not be older than twelve months.

    Please provide us with a copy of your driver’s license or passport. Please make the copy as large and as light as possible.

  77. Mamun Khan

    My paypal is limited for my scam.

    Paypal send me this email

    To resolve the limitation on your account we will need the following information.

    Please send in a copy of a recent utility bill showing your name and address exactly as they appear on your PayPal account.

    Valid as proof of address would be a copy of your passport, a utility bill (telephone, mobile phone, electricity, water, gas bill or similar) as well as a credit card or bank statement. The invoice must show your name and address exactly as they appear in your PayPal account and should not be older than twelve months.

    Please provide us with a copy of your driver’s license or passport. Please make the copy as large and as light as possible.

    But It is not possible to verify address, because i created Paypal in unsupported contry.

    How can I send money now?please give me a solution.

    Hello Tuan Do. Please I have a question and I desperately need your reply. I’m from Nigeria and my country is not allowed to receive or withdraw funds with Paypal, but can make payments. I wanna open a Nigerian Paypal account. Can I link my Payoneer US virtual bank account to my Paypal account and make successful withdrawals into my Payoneer account from Paypal? I heard it works and is legitimately approved. Please reply and thanks in advance.

    • Auction Essistance

      PayPal doesn’t allow Payoneer anymore so the finding another option to get money out for international customers has been difficult.

      No. You can not do that in Nigeria .

    paypal limited my account because I don’t want to provide my social number. also the account name is one of my family and she is not citizen. I don’t want to provide my social number because I don’t want they find out I use fake name and I won’t be able to use paypal forever.
    They sent second notice show if I don’t provide anything before 1/16 my account access may be further limited. If I am not going to do any action, can I withdraw my money after 180 days.
    I already add bank account before it has been limited. I don’t want to lose money. How can I do?
    Please help me
    thank you

  82. Michael J.

    Hi there, I’m a bit late but I had a question about this and this article has been all that has helped at all. I have a limited account because it is unverified. I dont have a way to send in a photo ID or mail to prove my identity (I have no idea how I could without just taking a photo of my license and a piece of mail, and I don’t think that’s acceptable). I plan to start selling my action figures on ebay. I was wondering if once I recieve payment I can still transfer it to my bank account even with a limited account? I would test it out but I cant put any money in my paypal wallet to transfer XD.

    Thanks for reading,


    • Maddy

      Hi Michael, you cannot do anything now. No matter you provide your documentation they will not honor that. They will use your money first for 180 day. No sorry you cannot withdraw from limited account.

  83. Tony

    My account was limited just recently, but unlike what was stated here, it has nothing in the resolution center. I contacted Auction Essistance and they said if nothing is in the resolution center, it is a permanent limitation and there is nothing I can do to get it lifted.

    Is my account gone for good? I have over $2000 in there that I don’t want to lose!!

    • Maddy

      Hi Tony, they will hold that money for 180 days.
      They use our money first. They have the choice not to limit us but they still do to use our money first. Paypal really sucks! If you have other payment options to use dont ever use paypal.

  84. Maddy

    Hello Can someone help me, i tried to withdraw from my sales on ebay Jan 25. 2016 to my bank account from paypal account. In the middle the money was lost & didnt get a chance to reach my bank, i keep emailing & calling paypal they said they put a trace but until now which is Feb.18 didnt hear anything yet. Can you please help me what should I do? They limited my account asking all verification but i am not giving them because i know they will not restore my service no matter what I provide the,pm. Please help!

    • Chris

      Hello Maddy , this is May already . Have they sent your money to your account already ?

  85. Ana


    I got an email today from Paypal that my account was limited. I heard that there was a phisher email circulating around to Paypal users to get their information. So I decided to open an incognito browser and logged in to my Paypal account. However when I tried putting in my username and password. I got an error message saying, “We’re sorry, we can’t log you in. If you think there’s a problem with your account, contact us and we’ll help resolve it.”

    I clicked on “forgot password” and received an email from [email protected] to reset my password. I set my Paypal account last 2012 and I can’t seem to remember the answers to my security questions anymore, which is required for me to reset my password. The other option for me to reset my password is to input my bank account number, which I did not do.

    So now, I don’t what to do? I’m waiting for Paypal to open and will call them later but right now, I would like to get some advice or any suggestions of what I should do or should not do.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Hey Buddy

    when you get permission to withdraw money from your limited account, they also allow to send that money to other paypal account?

    • Tuan Do

      You must have a bank account.

    • Chris

      If you have another PayPal account still with your own names , you can call them and send a photo of your ID and ask them to transfer the funds to a the New PayPal account . So it is possible But it would be better for you to just withdraw the funds .
