Ok okokoko so PAYPAL. at a certain point always gives me this like message which somewhat blocks or stunts my account or idk to the point I've had to recreate my account and shit so many times u no sneaky style
It basically tells me I have recieved over a certain sum of money during the year and I am nearing some kind of annual limit (2500 euros) and thus I have to send them my IDs and stuff.
i should be able to fix this, but that's not the issue
THE ISSUE IS
this is due apparently to some EU reglementation? meaning u cant recieve over 2,5k euros in a years time. Which is problematic. That doesnt mean like "I cant have 2501 euros on my account at once" it counts everything, whether you spend the money that passed through it, recieved it, sent it to the bank, withdrew it from the bank. It's problematic cause it means I can only recieve like 600 euros more on this account until I cant use it anymore - until next may, where the counter resets.
Does anyone know like.. how to lift this limit or like if theres anyway to not have it imposed on you? Cause I have a feeling which I am pretty sure of that other account can go above said limit.

Is your PayPal verified? Meaning you have given them a credit card/debit card + bank account (and/or) whatever the EU equivalent of a social security number is. I didn't wanna give PayPal mine and I can't remove it but there's another option I just can't recall what.
There are certain limits to a personal account but I googled it and can't find out what they are.

| |I already sent you an ask on the tumbles, but I think all you need to do is verify your account by doing any of the following things:

| | From what other people are saying (on this topic I found) it seems to be something they have to do to be sure it's not money laundering
To help prevent fraud, money laundering and identity theft, we ask you to follow steps to confirm that the bank account or credit card linked to your PayPal account is actually yours.
It's pretty dumb that they keep doing that to you, but it's just to like..make sure? I honestly don't know if you can lift that limit? I'm trying to see if maybe switching to business instead of personal would fix that.
But so far, all I'm seeing is sending in the information

yeah no that's what I am doing with them already, like i know it's for those reasons in which im ok to give them scans of id/bills etc
but I am just like... if that fixes the problems I have now, will it leave the annual 2500 limit on my account or will that be lifted too
LIKE i guess I am switching back to a UK account once i move back there for uni so the limit will be reset on that account but it's still bothersome to know there is a limit on these?
ANYWAY i will do what they ask annnd come back and say once it's cleared if the limit is raised, if anyone else in the eu has said problem

just to get back on this;;
i have submitted all the stuff they asked for and I think the wholelimit has been taken off my account
So if u get that message, just give them what they need I guess LOL
