    I have my account limited with $3,900 in it , for paypal.

    am i screwed? paypal wont unlimit me. or in xx days will i be allowed to retrieve these funds . issue is i dont have a ban account linked to it. i think i have a viritual card added to it... i have no disputes. im very upset.

    paypal has been reviewing my documents for 4 days now and still no update. afraid these funds are lost forever... it took me 2 weeks to respond to paypals initial request so i feel like i am forever limited.. with thesefunds locked in it..

    Why not just pick up the phone and call them sometimes talking to a live person is way better than to keep responding to tickets.

    I'm having the same problem and i've called them.

    I had XXXX$ in my account and they blocked my account permanently. They've only let me withdraw the funds available.

    Sadly i didn't attach any bank account to my paypal account just like you. So i contacted them and they told me that after 6 months i can attach a credit card to my account to withdraw the funds. Till then, all you can do is waiting ..

    Good luck !

    If your documents are in order then your money should be ok ....in Paypal pokets. Be prepared to wait for more than 3 weeks for your account to be reviewed; you could open a ticket to speed up the process and replay at the confirmation mail, otherwise your ticket won't get further. Be patient and get your money in your pockets at first occasion. Good luck.

    well here is my situation. paypal was asking for business invoices and I kept logging in and I did not submit the documents... because I went with secondeye and he took almost 2 weeks to deliver the documents for me.... so it says paypal is reviewing my documents but I never submitted any documents! I was hoping they would review the account see that I did not submit anything and tell me to submit again but nope.. been almost 5 days and it says they are reviewing my documents that is submitted and will get back to me in 2 days but this has not happened...

    We're reviewing your submissions.
    We’ll get back to you or lift your limitation within 2 business days.... I had this message for the 4 days and I have not submitted anything .. that is the funny part. I think I passed the amount of time I was supposed to submit the documents... and it autosubmitted or something.



    worse case scenario I can tell my buyers to do a chargeback... and it will automatically deplete my balance ... to get my money back . if paypal wants to play games with me

    Call them, that would be the best solution. They will max limit for 6 months but they do not take your money and close account.

    Why did they limit it?

    Totally agree, after all they have people in almost any country and may speak your native language. To call them will sort this out quickly.
