    Verifying paypal

    When I first signed up for Paypal, I didn't take it seriously, and didn't put my real name. Now I can't verify it T.T Can't believe how dumb I was.

    Anyway to change this? Will +rep for help.

    DO you really need your real name when youre using a prepaid credit card to verify your paypal?

    If youre using a legit credit/debit card then yea you need your real name/

    The only way to change your name is to contact PayPal and send in proof of your name ( Passport, driver's licence etc. )

    You can just create a new account under your real name and verify it then.

    I think you have to attach it to a bank account to verify it, but isn't it good unverified for up to ten grand?
    Just make a new account... transfer the money from the old to the new and there you go. Setting up a bank account should be free too.

    I was thinking of doing this, but I rather like my email that I'm using now.

    @underworld Yeah it's good up to 10k but the thing is I can't actually withdraw the cash and buy a drink, I can only spend it online...

    you dont need to have a bank account to verify it. You just need a prepaid card. Thats why you dont need your real name.

    I believe you cant send/recieve money if your paypal is unverified

    I wouldn't use my personal email for paypal because you are going to be giving it out a lot and paypal sends a lot of mail. As for the cash transferring, can you buy giftcards online? Very roundabout way of doing things, but it could work...

    Wouldn't PayPal ask you for some proof?
