    Hey, I use paypal for my dropshipping business. I don't selli any infringed products, I have shipping IDs for my customers' orders too. It's a real business. The only mistake I made was my paypal acc was 'personal' at the time when I connected it to my shopify store. After limitation I upgraded the acc to business with real business license stating that I deal with ecommerce.

    Current status of my paypal http://prntscr.com/dcm5v1

    I'm guessing my earnings in my PP acc spiked suddenly so that raised a flag.
    But completely closing down my account for this reason is too much even for gaypal.

    Also, I got to know recently that paypal HATE dropshippers.
    It's considered as "high risk" business because of all the refunds and late deliveries from China.
    But so far I haven't had a single refund from my account.

    2nd mail from Paypal http://prntscr.com/dcm570
    all documents submitted.

    I got this reply after that http://prntscr.com/dcm3bo

    It looks like they have no intention to uplift the limitation or give my account back.

    I have close to 100 orders pending now which I have to pay from my own pocket.

    Before someone asks why I kept such high amount in paypal; I did not keep it intentionally. I use Indian paypal which automatically auto-withdraws to my bank every night. I found about about the limitation the day I didn't get any paypal deposit notification from my bank.

    I highly doubt if I'll get that 2k back after 6 months. Idk why no one has started any sort of petition or taken any legal action against this mafia like organization. I had sleepless nights building my store and working on making sales. And then I get my payment processor frozen. It's just a damn shame.

    This is my last desperate attempt.. if anyone experienced can help to withdraw the money to my bank acc I'm willing to give some percentage from the balance in my paypal.

    Thanks,
    Dev

    You will, you just to need wait it out, which sucks especially if you're missing those funds from your cash flow. After 180 days has passed, you'll be able to withdraw it to a bank account of yours.
