    I need to receive $x,xxx in the next 10-15 days. I will be receiving them in installments of $xxx. My PP is fully verified and non-US. So do you think I am safe from being limited? Or should I increase the time period between each successive installment? I don't want my funds being in a limited PP account. I bought it (the account) recently from a BHW member.
    Any suggestions appreciated,
    Thanks,
    RW.

    I wouldn't trust paypal with so much money. Warn them in advance that you will receive big sum of money. Can't you receive this money in any other way? Paypal is really bad for such big amounts.

    Rather depends on where you are receiving the money from I think. Doesn't sound very legit if are getting it sent to PP account you bought, so I would say high chance of getting the account limited.

    High chance anyway with PP to receive that amount of legit money to your real personal account.

    Try to receive that money in your bank account or in cash.
    Using paypal is taking big risk.

    What I do now is against the TOS so that is pretty much impossible.

    I thought so too :(, I guess thats the only way.

    I would not trust PayPal with a washed five pound note covered in pocket fluff.

    WTF? Are you drunk?

    I most definitely could go for it. But my customer who is also a BHW member wants only through PP. Maybe he will listen to reason. What other service do you recommend?

    No I am merely expressing my level of trust in PayPal. Why are you?

    If and when the account is limited, refund the payment to the sender and ask them to send in a different way.

    Accepting large amounts of money in paypal is dangerous, because it's super easy to open a fraudulent claim and get the money back. Limitation is obviously another issue that is 100% out of your control. Unless, you take a form of payment that doesn't allow this, like bitcoin, western union, or a bank transfer. I take paypal for small amounts of money, less than 250 dollars. If it's more than that, sorry, you have to pay me another way. :)

    A bank transfer would be the best way to go when the amount is X,XXX.

    But if you don't want the risk of using PayPal and he doesn't want to use anything thing else then you could both compromise and maybe, if he's buying a service from you and he has service he can offer you could trade.

    The whole thing sounds dodgy. When a person refuses to pay me in a way that is more suitable for me to get the money and I am prepared to take their costs into consideration I have to ask why...

    Thanks for your input George :)

    That is a good idea. Unfortunately, I am pretty sure he isn't offering any service that I could be interested in. I guess PayPal is risky. I have received small amounts before and wanted to have some input from the guys who have been doing this for a long time.

    Do you suppose they could be planning to do a chargeback?

    I would ask the person I bought the account from. But in my opinion a new account receiving a couple of thousand bucks is going to look suspicious. Especially if you withdraw it all to a bank account.

    If it were me, I would get a payment and then go buy some digital product from clickbank or somewhere with part of the funds. Someplace that has a 30 or 60 day guarantee. Then get a refund in a week or two. That would make your account look more natural cause PP is designed to send, receive, and buy shit online. Just go straight thru the vendors site and not through an affiliate link... I hate when assholes refund shit in CB. Or hell, spend it on shit that you actually want domains and hosting and shit.

    I think that would make it look more natural and may not raise as many flags as taking the money and running would.

    If they are adamant about paying with paypal only, they're either worried you're going to screw them, or they have the intention to screw you.
