    To verify and confirm your paypal? Well, I have an alternative for you. All it will really cost you is like 28 dollars(you will keep 25 dollars of it) and time....

    How many of you have seen those prepay walmart cards? Well, you can verify and confirm your paypal with them, and use it kinda like a bank account.. LOL... So heres what you do:

    Get one of those cards... It is like 20 or 25 for the minimum you can put on it plus 3 to put the money on the card itself. You have to register online and wait for your personalized card to come in (7-10 business days)

    Now to do the stuff with the paypal. It will say to confirm the card it will take 1.95 out of the account but will replace it when its confirmed... So you have to wait like 7 days for the code to show up, (yes it takes time)

    Then you input the code and voila, one of the limits is lifted... As for the next one, you have to have the routing number for the card..... To find this you have to go into the login page of the card, log in (obviously), hover over add funds, click direct deposit, scroll down the page and click get started... This will open a new window where you can see the account number and routing number...

    You keep this window open and you put that information in on the confirm bank account stuff. It will then say that it has put in money and it will take 2-3 business days... Really, just try for 5 days. It should be in there by then.... Put in the deposited amounts and voila! You are confirmed and verified, thus lifting all your limits.

    P.S.- I suggest on the cards, if you are doing legitimate work, go for the premier account or whatever and use your real name on both the paypal and the prepay card. That way you can confirm your identity by ssn, if you are in the us.


    Hope this helps all the cheap people like me! :D

    But the thing that we are putting out there is that its not virtual.. Its something that you can carry around in your pocket and use.... Anywhere cc's are accepted. There are many advantages of this, but like abhi08 says, you can do this many ways.

    And as this was pointed to me by a fellow bhw'er, you can also use other prepays for this, I just used my experience as what to do, as I know how this one works... Modify to your own needs and your own card choice.

    "You can?t link a gift card, prepaid card, or one-time use card ? those cards won't work because of the security measures we have in place."

    from paypal's website....

    I've been looking into this too. So you've done this and it works?

    Yeah you can link a prepay card... The walmart card is apparently read differently than what they think... Or maybe they don't understand that there are "bank account" numbers associated with the cards... lol... But yes I have done it and im verified and confirmed.... It just takes considerably longer to withdraw to the card, verify it and confirm the "bank account" aka the card.

    like I said.. I used my real name... The same as I would get my checks from companies.... and my ssn matched all the above information.... And with the Walmart cards... It did take a long time, as I explained, about 4 business days for me... So its not quick just cheap... But if you use the card and try to get it refunded to the card, it will take a day or two to show up... And just request checks...

    there's a difference between a vcc and a card that you can actually have in your hand... That is what they were trying to say, but I am certain that a gift card wouldn't work and a one-time use card wouldn't allow you to do the deposit and figure out the numbers of the deposit... The bottom line is that if you still want a card that you can hold, this is a way to do it without having a bank account. And I cant verify that this is true for any other prepay card, as I have never tried any other, I just did this one, the Walmart prepay card...

    If any of you try this out and it works, please let the rest of the BHW community know on here so that everyone can check it out.

    Thanks
