    PayPal question...

    Ok, so I am trying something to help avoid unwanted chargebacks. I created a second PayPal account to receive money, then I can transfer the money to my main PayPal. I want to keep the 2nd account unverified and not attach a bank account or anything to it, but PayPal won't let me transfer any money from it unless its verified. So I have $30 on this account that I need to use, but can't.
    How can I move the money without verifying the account?

    Why not connect to a bank account, move the money, then shut down the paypal?

    Its a thing Paypal has with US accounts. If you make an Canadian or Australian account, it'll let you transfer without verification.

    My husband doesn't know about me selling neo stuff. Adding our bank account would catch his attention.

    If you send a check home it increases the sending limit to $2000 a month.

    Not a fan of checks, but I guess if that's how it has to be then I can do that.

    Not sure if it's the only way, I just know that's how it worked for me.

    I made my first $200 from neo and wanted to send it home. My account was unverified. I had never sent money, only received. After sending the check home, I was able to send money. I discovered it by mistake.

    Here is how I would set it up, not sure if you neeed a bank for this option but hear me out.

    Account 1- Keep it as normal, it's already linked to your bank.

    Account 2- No bank, only cc info I guess?. Prepaid Gift Visa Info?

    Account #2 Receives money, then you send said money to Account 1 as a gift?

    Yeah, you might get some fees but charge back becomes a moot point because who cares if you have a negative balance on a dud account?

    Or!

    You can transfer the money to the bank, close your account, Open a new one under a new email?

    Haven't tried the second option yet.

    I would prefer to be able to send it to my main PayPal, because I have a PayPal debit card on that account. But, I guess I can try requesting a check.

    @Evelsaint
    I didn't know you could verify with a credit card? Hmm. I just don't want to have to continually create paypals. I just want this dud account to use for big purchases. And I can just use it until whenever.

    Well, not verify, you can like a 4000 spending limit if you use CC only?

    I guess you just can't send money to the bank, you can always transfer the funds by sending to another paypal account.

    Kids don't have bank/CC user prepaid cards or moneypaks to charge the account.
