Default it is safe to transfer money between multip paypal accounts

I am in Canada I have two paypal accounts which vertified by Canadian banks.

Recently I opened a U.S base banking account ,so I will have a U.S paypal account soon. I will have a lot of online shopping , but most of US retailers only accept U.S paypal or Visa Card.
I will not link this US paypal to any ebay account. I just want to use it to make payment.

My question is : it is safe to transfer money from Canadian paypal to U.S paypal account. I will do a lot of shopping, so each time, I may transfer around 2000 US .


Thanks

Convenient only if paypal allows the transaction to go through without problems. $2000 is too much to consider putting thro: even if it is for shopping, paypal's system may pick the transactions up and decide there may be fraud.

Are these accounts, personal,premier or business? Premier & business have a little more freedom. Not the best thing to do,imho

You will also run the risk of other accounts being linked when the original account is limited.

Why they picking on these transactions now because too many people doing "e-funds exchange" business..They receive funds from sender's stealth accounts and withdraw it themself,pay sender by other way with lower exchange rate so they get profit between exchange.This is illegal for paypal and those exchanger always ask you to send personal payment...So all the personal payments whatever for now all run a risk.

Do you have 2 activing unlinked ebay account for those 2 paypals??If so you can list an auction and buy with another ebay account,just mark it low price eg $50 t avoid the fees,then edit the invoice to $500 and pay by the paypal you wish to transfer from.So that will make it a ebay purchase and should be much safer.Just spend a bit more fees but worth a try.

Before you transfer to the china paypal,check the feedback and reg date.If its an old account with many transactions before,Not a problem.Because paypal already trusted them so you send payment to them you on safe side as well...

The red flag would be transfer between new accounts.So if both of your accounts less than 6 months old.Not recommend to do what you said at all!!

If you're just trying to use this to buy things, a lot of people accept google checkout... If you have a US bank account, why not get a debit/credit card to go with it?

I see . I really appreciated these help from this forum

I just opened my U.S account. I think it will take sometime to apply a Visa Card.


Did Amazon accept google checkout?

my old account is 10 months old.

I guess my supplier's paypal account is more than 6 months.

Don't do it!!

I'm here because of that. They viewed it as 'money laundering' no matter how innocent you plead they will close both accounts. I only sent 1000US$ two times as well and the second time they both got suspended and 3 years later I still can't use them
