Default PayPal says I MUST have Photo ID in order to withdraw



around 150 days prior to this, a PayPal employee told me, if I leave the account in the current state (No bank added, no ID added, literally just an empty account with money on it) I will be able to withdraw in 180 days.

And now they hit me with this, that I need to prove it's me. Obviously it's a stealth account, so I can't provide an ID. What do I do?

Thanks

They’ve started doing this with some 180 day limited accounts recently. It’s no longer a guarantee that you can withdraw your funds after the 180 days

Only thing you can do is provide them what they are asking for

If your going to submit docs make sure they are high quality to give you the best chance. You only really get one shot at this stage

Yeah, I get it, but can they legally just hold on to my money? Paypal's a sketchy disgusting company who take advantage of small businesses.

I've heard people who were in a similar situation (they couldnt get their money after 180 days) and they kind of 'threatened' paypal with the law and etc etc in a long email, and paypal got scared and gave them the ability to withdraw.

Pretty sure I should be able to get my money in 180 days, without me needing to provide anything, no?

I think Paypal have upgraded their document verification process or something. I provided a flawless ID which was still rejected

It can be very tricky to get money out of paypal if they feel you are not who you say you are. I have $2995 in one and just this past March was able to get funds from 2015 limitations on multiple accounts.

Hve you tried calling paypal and see if there's an agent that can just withdraw your funds to your bank account?

No, because the 180 days are gonna be over in like 2 weeks. I might make a call though if I won't be able to withdraw.

Ahhh... you jumped the gun on this post.

NORMALLY you can withdraw funds after 180 days. They send you an email saying you can withdraw the vast majority of the time. As long as you have a bank account attached, once you receive the email, you log in and withdraw.

I believe most of us was assuming that the 180 days was already up and you were having problems. That is mostly when you dont have a bank account attached that you will run into this issue.

I would try to add a bank account now. You will need one on sooner or later anyways.

It doesn't let me add a bank account as of right now. It says 'We're not able to process the request right now'. Really hope I'll be able to get my money in 2 weeks.

The screenshot he showed is obviously from PayPal's official website UI.

I have read in the past that while in the USA, PayPal 'must' release funds after 180 days, they don't have to in other parts of the world. Not sure if rumor or true.

So basically if they dont release my money, and reject a ⊗⊗⊗⊗ ID I provide, my money will be forever stuck and paypal will keep getting that sweet interest. Doesnt sound too good lol. Do people buy limited pp accounts with money in them? i'm kinda lost here, lol, it hasn't even been 180 days but I've already lost hope
