Default New "feature" Claim your money? SS needed

Hey guys,

So I have somewhere between 40-50pp accounts active and just started a new one which is totally different.

I got my first payments in (sub 100USD to break it in easy) but I do not have a paypal-balance.
I only have "Money is waiting for you" "CLAIM IT". And when clicking "Claim it" it requests DOB and SS.
Option 2 is transfer to bank... but I'm obviously not linking a bank for sub-100USD.

I called PP what is going on but was told you can only have a PP-Balance after providing SS which I obviously rejected.

Anybody else have that? Any way around this?

thanks!

Well obviously that monkey you spoke too is a liar.

This is one of those soft limitations, so add an EIN number and upgrade the account to business while you are at it. See if it goes away.

@rsot: of course not linked, all stealth !

@SaiJin: really dont want to get an EIN. Not sure if this a "soft" limitation. Looks like another new Paypal layout with this BS attached.

Hopefully somebody has a solution...

Account is FULLY verified of course.

So you have a VBA on the account?

IDK what's going on if you already have a VBA attached and they're telling you to add a bank account to claim money.

Yet you say you do not want to add a bank account?

A bank account verifies a paypal.

A vcc confirms a paypal.


Tell us what you have done.

add screen shoots of the paypal message please.

Add a VBA and I'll bet it goes away. The picture of your PP account you uploaded shows it has no bank account attached, just a card. BTW you should black out identifying details next time. A PP rep could see this thread and go looking for your account.

If I'm wrong and it still wants your SSN after adding a VBA or real bank, then that's scary. That could indicate Paypal is finally making the transition to being a real bank/merch acct provider in order to make up for the losses they'll incur by eBay cutting them off in 5 years.

I think if you get this Claim thing, this account holder has opened a Pp account before...

UPDATE:

This is not a new feature, this is a back-end-problem.
Spent several hours on the phone with PP - they could not explain whats going on. Apparently a security feature going haywire.

Nothing could over-ride it and they admitted (well they are always lying anyways) that the account has no risk.

Fairly new account, fully verified with VBA and VCC, mobile confirmed, IP solid. Just got a few low-amount payments in.

SOLUTION:
Paypal closed the account for me and opened a new one (LOL).


I ran into the same issue with a second account now. Let's see how that goes.

I have 40-50 active and maybe another 30-40 agin, so far only 2 accounts showed this issue.

I think you are right, Paypal has something up its sleeves... Maybe requiring SS from the very beginning will become a reality...

I kind doubt this is just a mix up why would they have a whole button coded if it was a mistake

When creating new PP's, the funds are not placed into the normal wallet. Instead you have to select the "Claim your money" button where you are given a choice to either provide bank account or confirm SSN/DOB. If you do neither, the funds are not available to withdrawal, obviously.

This just seems to be a way for PP to get verification before allowing funds to leave the account.
