Default PayPal act has been limited question

Hello all. My eBay and PP have been up and running a little over a month, no issues. No cases, complaints, etc.

Just received an email from PP saying my acct has been limited, stating "significant changes in your account activity". Requesting:

*Photo ID
*Proof of address
*Provide invoices
*Supplier contact info
*Provide Proof of SSN

BTW, this is not one of those spoof emails that have been going around - it's in my PP dashboard too.

What should I do? Thanks in advance!

If you're unable to provide the documents they're requesting your only hope is calling in. There have been cases in the past where the seller was able to get their account reinstated without providing all the documentation - but it requires calling in.

Default Re: PayPal act has been limited question

UPDATE! First off, thanks phaz0rz! Took your advice and the first rep I got on the phone pretty much said they needed all documents. Waited a bit and called back and this rep said all she needed was invoices and a utility bill (WAY less than the original requirements list!). So a step in the right direction.

My question is if I get the utility bill (yes this PP is stealth) will it be an immediate shutdown? As in, will this be essentially the same as sending in a photo ID (where I'm assuming they use a third party verification system) and it be a no go?

Thanks!

@ernest, not necessarily a 100% shutdown - worth a shot with the utility bill

Thanks rsot. Do you (or anybody) know if PP actually uses identity verification? Been reading conflicting answers in the forum

Yes, they do.

They also allow for changes in life like moving and not updating utility addresses.

GreenBean do you, or anyone, know if they do identity verification specifically for Utility Bill only? I would imagine they can do it for Drivers License/ID, but I was told by someone else that they do not do it for just utility bill.

Thanks in advance!

Yes they CAN work.

But be prepared with your back up accounts in case it turns out for the worst.

Hey earnest. Dam man im sorry for what happened. I'm actually planning on starting up another sellers account, but I'm a bit scared as i don't want 1 month to go by and it gets red flagged.

When you say ""significant changes in your account activity" Did you do anything different at all that you know of for them to suspect you?

Hi Chronos. I will say that my sales shot through the roof - much faster than they should have for a new stealth acct. Perhaps it was due to that, perhaps it was simply due to my using of a VPN.
