Default Getting paid via paypal but not claiming your money, yet.

Is this a good idea?

I'm getting a few payments sent to an email address, but that email address is not even registered to a paypal account yet. Is this a good thing to do? I guess it reduces my chances of being limited, and I can just register it when there's enough money attached to it, and then "accept" the money. all in one go.
is this a good plan?

HI, Vimto,
Welcome !

- I read the other day in another Post where a member had done exactly this..
I, personally have never tried it..
-- They said that they could NOT be limited, as the acct was not yet active..
-- So, pitfalls:
a.) How will you get the goods to the folks? Will you ship asap, to keep your ebay rating up + if so, how ill you know what their paypal address will be to ship to-- I guess just in the Paypal pyt email?
b.) Can you afford to push the goods out, without taking any funds in for a while?
c.) What would Prevent Paypal from say-- you get over $500 in there.. so you activate the acct today, you would still need to VERIFY that acct with a cc + bank info which takes 2 lift the $500 Limit?

Just a couple Pros/cons?
Always.. Be the BEST you can Be, at Whatever you do! Be Part of the Solution, rather than Part of the Problem.

Buyers can cancel the payment anytime as long as it hasn't been picked up yet. Probably not a good idea to leave money like that hanging.

Notice: Do not PM me. I get too many PMs to answer.
Please go to and submit a ticket instead.

I have done it and had no problems. I let a few payments come in and then added the email address to an established paypal account. Only wait about 3-4 days though to add.
