Default alternatives to photo id

what if you dont have photo id, eg no passport and an old style driver licence? any alternatives allowed?

It is in real details, so I dont need to make stealth ID and I dont want to resort to that, can I submit my paper licence? or can I send
something like a paper document

in the past i have convined them that i did'nt drive and i have never ever been abroad and they let it slide, i have done this 3 time the last time my attempts failed but i know why, if you between the age of 18 and 22 you will most likley get away with that excuse.

Another thing you could do is get a citezens card or try this it worked for me few months ago

I had this problem a few weeks back - I don't have a passport or driving license - they told me a birth certificate would do instead.

PayPal would eventually require some sort of official identification I would think.

@Kia78, so did you provide the birth certificate and have the limitation removed? I have never used a birth cert. Was this a stealth account by the way?

Yes I provided them with one and the limitation was removed.

This wasn't a stealth account, I have yet to create any - I'm still reading my guide (up to my 5th time so far)

paypal can only ask you for what you can provide. Not everyone has what they tell you to supply.

So if you have no DL, no passport, then paypal usually accept something else.
Birth certificate is aces.

I got an iidentity card from my country, it is old style and I can travelwith it, but I dont want to use it as it has different name from my english name and name on paypal, it is not something dodgy, I just anglicised my name, its complicated, I changed by deedpoll, and I dont want to submit all of that because itkind of freaks me to give that much real info. my birth certificate is not avail as it is gone years ago somewhere abroad, probably my mum might have it. so what else to birth cert, anything at all you can tthink of? I got bank statements on english name, wage slips.

"PayPal accept government issued photo ID. Or a copy of your birth certficate."

@missinglink, go stealth and/or get creative, you know the drill! You could order a copy of your birth cert online by the way. May depend on your country birth place, not sure.

I am personally unsure about birth cert as it doesn't take much effort for PayPal to search the birth cert details. Though I suppose that the point is, it depends on whether they will/do search that info..........
