    PayPal has the reputation of closing accounts for no reason, but don't give up. I can't remember whether it's on this forum marketplace or somewhere else, that i saw a service that help people reopen their PayPal accounts, they'll supply you with all the documents needed in your name, and the thread has a lot of positive comments (100s- 1000s). I think you should check for such services to restore your earnings.

    Also you can always use other alternatives, like stripe or the dozens of payment processors that will definitely work.

    PayPal definitely sucks, because they impose bans for no reason.

    Did you leave footprints? Different IPs, different browsers, cookies, etc.

    Seems like you knowingly connected blacklisted domain, which got all accounts banned.

    Why do people leave big balances in your PayPal accounts?!.. It is NOT a bank.. My PP balance is always ZERO.. whenever I get a payment I withdraw it immediately to my bank.. NEVER leave balances in your PP account.. You will cry later!

    I never understood why people here open threads to call companies a scam when they get caught for breaking the rules. Selling followers goes completely against their TOS and you got caught, so they limited your account. How exactly did they scam you when you're the one opening up multiple accounts trying to fly under their radar?

    And I highly doubt you had 0 disputes. Those types of customers love to open disputes for the smallest reasons, or sometimes no reason at all. I sold followers for about a year, and its classified as a high risk business for a reason. You won't find any reputable processors openly OK with processing these sales.

    Yeah that’s the problem, PayPal is closing accounts without reason when you have a legal store, but when you have a store or anything that is against their tos then this can go very fast, if they find it out.

    Start offering any and all alternatives you can to your customers. Some will pay using other payment processors. This will diversify your risk.

    But it will also serve to protect your paypal accounts. The less money you receive in a paypal account the less likely you are to get limited. Its a theory i have. This is also why you should have multiple paypal accounts if you can, and spread the money you receive between them.

    And dont be a fucking retard. Never send money between your paypal accounts, andnever create or use the accounts on the same browser/ip address etc.

    Heres an idea. Make a site selling something paypal allows. I am not sure what that is. Maybe they allow baby diapers? No cant be it, babies could die, too risky... well i dont know what paypal allows. Maybe selling pencils. But someone could kill someone with a pencil its like a weapon. Maybe pillows... but someone could suffocate on a pillow and die. Its high risk for sure.

    Okay i tried. I am not aware of any product or service that paypal allows and has no problem with. But if you find it, then make a website selling that product or service and then have your customers pay you through it. Then you should be cool.

    Even if someone reports you you can always at least argue that theyre a competitor and theyre lying to get you in trouble. At that point its your word against theirs.

    And the people that defend paypal, shut the fuck up :)

    I think it's possible to avoid that by a stealth website.

    PayPal has a policy called Acceptable Use Policy, if you violate it, they can fine you for $500 per violation:
    If you had multiple violations, they deduct $500 per violation, so you won't be able to withdraw the full amount, if there's any money left at all, after they're done.
    This is what must have happened to the guy. Your case was different, if the full amount was available to withdraw.
    It's not the disputes or user satisfaction. Selling digital services can be risky. If you were coding bots for social media sites for instance, someone or the site itself can report you and you'll lose your account. If PayPal deducts money (on top of which is reserved for disputes, if there's any), that's always because according to them you violated their Acceptable Use Policy and they can deduct $500 per violation (see above). This can include many things, sometimes not even spelled out. So yes, it's in their discretion to rule against you.

    Fiverr has a very vague rule: if you violate the TOS of a 3rd party site, you violate the rules of Fiverr. Nothing is spelled out, it's a general rule. E.g. you make a gig about selling Twitter followers. You can't do that, because it's against the Twitter TOS, which makes it against the Fiverr TOS, but you won't find this spelled out anywhere in the Fiverr TOS. If they catch you, your account can get suspended, earnings forfeited in serious cases. I just mentioned this example, because it's easy to understand and this is something similar to what PayPal does. PayPal can't/doesn't actively monitor for this, but if someone reports you, they take a look and they can shut you down, on top of it, fine you. Right in the moment when you started to use their service, you agreed to this.

    If you think back what kind of tools you were coding, you might be able to have your answer.

    The answer in your question bro. They totally put limited access on new accounts. Based on your transaction $1k for new account raising high risk alert for them. Create stealth accounts and warming up the accounts for less than $100 per transaction for few weeks should be good

    But: I get over 10k per month from smm ! What can I do?
    I have a new domain now registered and will create a new business paypal with new company name/documents/IP/bank etc....

    also I need alterantive options to diversify the risk. Stripe suspended me once in the past for selling SMM services.
    Which CC provider 100% works?

    Thing is...Clients either want to pay with PAYPAL or CREDIT/DEBIT card.... Literally nobody pays with BTC or other stuff.
    So I have to offet them at least 2 or 3 different checkout methods.


    My store is wocommerce based and yes...inside the paypal transactions it will say '' Product: Twitter Followers: 2000'' or ''Youtube Views: 5000''
    Is there a way to displays the product name on th site and then the actual product name is different on paypal like: ''TWT FOLL 2000 or ''YOUTVIE 5000''

    Yes I KNOW its against their policy. But I am in this business for years and I already changd domain 2 or 3 times and thats my fifth paypal account.
    I think losing the paypal business account simply belongs to this business.

    Guys, we are on BHW, only because its against their policy I will never stop...better to get a new account again...thats a risk that belongs to tis business.

    In the past PayPal never stole the money, they froze it and then released it 180 days after....only bank withdrawal worked then


    Pls help me

    I never heard they stole it...they froze it for 180 days but then released it always. Only bank withdrawal possible then. And receiving/sending money was still not possible.

    Never fully rely on Paypal, try to avoid them as much as possible. With them you never know. Where are you from? There specific countries where so much scam is going on, they have zero tolerance to ban accounts in there...

    I had 100k sales in 2019 and pretty much spent withdrawed 85k of it.....account completely SMM SERVICES (FOLLOWERS/VIEWS ETC)
    Of course 4-5 disputes, some people just open chargebacks but nobody can avoid this....but we then just refund....we never LOST a dispute.
    If PayPal would manually check the account they would know its no risk for them.
