    UPDATE:

    Got my new account varified and restored to normal.
    I think I cracked the code for PayPal verification :)

    Gone through all:
    1. 21 days hold
    2. 2 days hold
    3. Profile verification
    4. Transactions verifications

    Now its time to scale to the moooon~

    Do not be too confident just yet. PayPal can still come after you(as they have me). You can still get hit with reserves(10% on the good end and 30% on the bad end). I scaled from 500 to 1k to 10k+ and each had their own issues.

    Got hit with 30% reserve on 10k+ daily orders and they had the audacity to also take about half of what i already had on my account PRIOR to this reserve. I called them and got them to release that money. Regardless, things can still go very wrong. If you're going to keep using it, all I can say is to try and keep establishing a good relationship with them constantly and even that isn't a guarantee.

    really!!! OMG fk!! this is painful~

    What did they ask you to provide after they clear you once from transaction verification? and did you also upload the tracking number on their system in a timely manner?

    30% reserve for how long?
    I am thinking to call them ahead to let them know that I am going to scale hard for Christmas, Black Friday and boxing day. Have you tried calling them ahead to let them know there will be an increase in the account activity and did it help?

    Use a payment gateway that combines a bunch of payment methods. PayPal sucks, they're still riding on the "first-mover advantage". Nobody should use them, it encourages bad business practices.

    PayPal is terrible! I stopped using them all together and switched to Stripe for my e-commerce stores. How much money do you think PayPal steals from all their big customers when they ban them, probably $1K every minute? More?

    Anyway, if you must, here's how to create a WORKING stealth account:

    1. Create it on a RDP (remote desktop). You don't have to mess around with cookies, proxies, bullshit because your machine and IP is ALWAYS the same. RDP costs you around $15 per month. This way there will not be ANY cross-contamination between your real identity and stealth PP.
    2. Create business account using fake info. If they ever ask for document, get forged documents like bank statements, driving licence whatever for around $30 per document, cheap.
    3. You can cash out to bank (not your own of course), or use drops, cash out to BTC, many ways to cash out it's just more annoying this way.

    Good luck!

    PayPal sucks mate. Just a funny thing, when they officially came to CIS like a few years ago with ads, russian translation etc I made an account with all documents to pay for things on the internet and got banned for my first payment lol and they didn't even try to provide support even when I was talking in english. Took something like a month for the first reply and they asked for more documents. I wonder when people around the world will treat them like in CIS.

    I want to try dropshipping too, but PayPal sucks. I can actually buy legit business PP account from the middleman for the start, but as I see here on BHW there is no guarantee. Stripe seems okay for me, but I don't actually know how it is going to impact on CR, please share some details if you'll stop working with PayPal.

    Noice dude thats what I talking about. Did you try to work with PP or you just went straightforward to Stripe? I'm curious if CR losses are big without paypal.

    No They will not. Paypal offer almost 100% refund to customers if the seller does not deliver or the goods are no good. For this reason most people including myself will not buy from an unknown seller except through Paypal. And don't forget that Paypal offers you an extra layer of security as opposed to buying with your credit card.

    No dude for e-commerce just switched to Stripe. For services, if it's a big invoice and customer only wants PayPal, I can still use them. But it costs me time and money to cash out blabla, so fuck em.

    I reside in India. Paypal does not have rights to hold money for an Indian individual (business included) for more than 24hrs because it is not a bank and it must transfer any funds to the bank account. Due to guidelines from the central bank.

    I haven't done very big numbers. But you can try to set up an Indian account & LLP(same as llc in US) and see how it goes. It costs about $4-500 to set it all up.

    We might be able to help each other. Hmu.

    This is a very good law! do you have the extraction of this regulation that I can read more on it? and does this make GayPal work less with Indian companies?

    Hey! Sorry I couldn't find you a particular article / govt. website.

    From my diligent research I've found that this is because Paypal is not a banking institution. Only a banking institution is allowed to hold money in India and needs to pay interest on it. Since Paypal does not, it is supposed to do an automatic withdrawal to the linked bank account within 24hrs.

    We've got tons of other local wallet services and transaction/payment partners here.

    Hope this helps!

    The sick part is they will tie you down with their terms of services and user agreement but I have read most of their civil cases before that they engaged with on related to hold and they have all lost in all countries so far.

    But again we are in the mercy of GayPal for now because buyers like it but now I am offering 10% discount if they checkout using stripe instead lol.
