Verify your PayPal account

PayPal verification is just about providing a little more information about yourself to help confirm your identity. The steps you'll need to take are:

  • Log into your PayPal account on a computer
Under your name on the top left of the page click ‘Get the most out of your
    PayPal account’ 
  • Check and complete the steps for verification

You’ll know that your PayPal account has been verified as you’ll see 5 GREEN circles with a TICK in your PayPal dashboard confirming:

  • Your email address is valid (don’t forget to check your spam folder)
  • Your bank account has been added to your PayPal account. You cannot verify your account without adding your bank account
  • Your mobile number has been added
  • Your credit or debit card has been added to your PayPal account

How do I verify my PayPal account?

  • Log in to your PayPal account online (We recommend using the desktop version). Once you have entered the Summary page, click the ‘get the most out of PayPal’ button to view any incomplete details needed to verify your account
  • Please ensure that the correct bank account, card details, mobile number and email address have all been added and you can now see all 5 boxes ticked in the drop down tab
  • Once complete, you will receive an email confirming your verification and you are now ready to sell!

By taking the steps to provide PayPal additional evidence of your identity, you will be provided with additional protection when buying and selling.
