what document they are asking ?
Quickly buy an old domain, that sounds like a business, or like a service provider (not local! but internet service provider) and then call them bout your limit and tlel them internet services dont have papers....... and u r done.
If I were you, I'd go and start a business, so it actually exists, but only on paper. Register as a self-employed person, go to your bank and open an account in business name. That will get you all the documents you need. If you're self-employed in the UK, you will be liable to pay national insurance contributions, which are pretty low (around 3 GBP per week). Just close the business a month or two later, if you don't want to keep paying the NICs. That way you'll have all the documents and still - no business. Also, PayPal very rarely recognizes forged documents, so if you're good at PhotoShop - have a shot.
I did start a business when PayPal asked for documents. Just opened a bank as self-employed person, paid a couple of NI contributions and then closed the account/business stating that it didn't go well. The documents you'll get from your bank as well as your NIC payment receipts are enough for PayPal.
My Paypal is UK account, and a business account.
Why is there even a 1.9k limit? Don't you get to remove it when you verify your account with a Credit Card? I have no limit at all.
Call them, tell them that your site is an online service, they don't know that since your account was automatically LIMITED (not by them, but by the system they made).
This should solve the problem.
