    Sorry if this is in the wrong section, but currently I have a Premier PayPal account and I'm making a steady profit from Fiver (high 3 figures each month). Since this money is coming from Fiverr, does anyone know what the chances are of PayPal limiting my account?
    I don't want to lose my monkeys! I actually read that thread just now and spat my coffee everywhere to thought I'd add the monkeys part in here.

    Cheers

    SMM.

    Yeah it's a legit account. I'm in the UK so it's not a problem getting a real one. Thanks.

    Paypal won't limit your account due to payments from Fiverr.

    As long as your PP account is legit, sit back and enjoy the earnings my friend.

    Cheers.

    Even legit PayPal account can be limited at any time. It's rare, but happens. Don't keep too much money in your account and withdraw them regularly to your bank account. Cheers.

    They can't limit your account unless they have a SOLID reason for it. As you are not doing anything shady, no need to worry about this.

    Cheers.

    If they do limit it, you can always use another account or switch to the Revenue Card.

    Wrong. Paypal can limit your account due to random security checks, or if they think there's suspicious activity going on in your account (even when there isn't). I've had this happen.

    You can withdraw without any problem. Every fiverr seller is withdrawing through paypal.

    if you live in Europe and your account exceeds 2500 euro you will have to verify the account with an ID.

    This is what got my account screwed for months.... :(.


    but no worries payments from fiverr is no harm.

    And why you can not provide them with an ID ?
    that's why they limit accounts because of your case.PayPal is also under pressure because of Money laundering.
    Thanks

    You'll be fine. Fiverr is a legit site. However I highly recommend not keeping your money in paypal. You never know with those guys. I've heard some horror stories. Just withdraw your cash on a regular basis and keep your PP balance low.

    Anyone that says Paypal can't or won't limit your account without good reason doesn't know what they're talking about! Paypal legally takes people's money thousands of times per day and won't give it back unless you ask for it back after a time period of almost six months. Paypal does this as part of their business model. One, they are not governed as a bank and have very little if any regulations on them. Two, they take money from thousands of people a day and get away with it, because they do business with hundreds of thousands or millions a day. Three, when they take people's money they claim they had to do it for fraud prevention reasons (similar to the way the USA takes citizens' rights in the name of protecting them). Four, when Paypal takes people's money they make you wait close to six months, because the time limit has passed for someone to try a charge back with their credit card. Five, if after six months you forgot about the money or don't properly request for it back; Paypal keeps the money (I know that sounds criminal but Paypal gets away with it). Paypal has been doing this successfully for years without the main stream media commenting on it. Learn more at paypalsucks.com

    If you are going to use Paypal withdraw money from the bank account connected with Paypal to a second bank account not connected with Paypal on a regular basis. The bank account connected with Paypal only keep a small sum of money in that account. Many people are unaware that once you connect a bank account to Paypal you have given Paypal permission to deposit and WITHDRAW money from the account.

    If you're going to use Paypal be smart about it! Good luck and be safe!:)
