    Ok i am really screwed now..

    Just when I received this mail from paypal i received another mail telling me that my account has been limited.. err i dont have a credit card attached to it.

    so i rushed to my advertiser to tell him to make payments to a different paypal id which is cc verified but too late. He had already sent 2k to this account so basically i am screwed.

    I sent a mail to paypal explaining the problem and this is what i get:


    So what are my options now.. ??

    Please help me guys...

    Can i use entropay to verify my account ? and withdraw funds ?

    or vcc ?

    thanks

    they will usually put a 90 day hold on the funds then let you release it. What i did with several accounts that i had i had to refund payments to people i know and have them send it to another account

    Try submitting all the valid documents including ID and Address Proofs and clearly state that you don't have a Credit Card. You can always go for VCC but they can limit account again and ask you to show the Credit Card Statement and then you'll be screwed. My account was limited thrice in 5 days. My ID and address proofs helped my out.

    Good Luck.

    Better submit all the documents they asked.Whatever you do they will take min 3 weeks to go through everything.If you provide everything they asked they will release your funds.

    Yay... just received a mail from them telling my account has been fully restored without me submitting any documents !!

    They said they reviewed my account and found everything in order.

    I will still get a cc though just to be safe and withdraw everything on monday.

    Has anyone figured a way out in case you want to keep the funds in paypal for online software purchases /hosting /etc. ??
    This ways we would loose out on the currency conversion and fees twice over
    1. When the funds are being transferred to our account
    2. When we withdraw funds from our credit card to make payments.

    Thanks

    Paypal are annoying because they even limit legit accounts with perfectly legit activity.
    Contact them over the phone that will speed things up a bit

    Payoneer withdrawal is blocked in India.So if you want to go with payoneer you can use it only for online purchases and again fee is high if we use only for online purchase.

    There is a way..

    I spoke to paypal today and they mentioned that the receipt of a payment will be made available for withdrawal upon submission of shipping tracking number (in case of goods). For services they will wait for the buyer to confirm that the service has been delivered and only then will the money be available for withdrawal. The lady I spoke to mentioned that they are still in the process of working on drawing up a final policy but the new policy will revolve around the confirmation of delivery of the promised contract (goods or services). So you can always ask your buyer to delay the confirmation (for services). This will give you sometime before you are required to withdraw.

    However this wont serve your purpose as you will not be allowed to make purchases with receipts you have received. So back to square one.

    I still feel this is not going to be all that of a problem. It will only mean that we will have to pay a similar fees to our CC company while making purchases. So approx 3% fees for receiving money and approx 3% (foreign transaction fees) for sending money. However there are a few banks that waive this...yet to do a research on that..

    Though this is not the real problem my friend..the real problem is overlooked by us....It is this confirmation of services and if we will need an IEC to withdraw the money..coz if we need one then we are all screwed..we will have to maintain accounts like a proper offline business house....figure that

    rprocks, even though this sounds like a much awaited option but this is not one, not for me..

    I have been using paypal for years now and I cant just shift my entire client base to something else suddenly.

    Besides, this is going to be the rule for all such services in India, sooner or later...so changing is definitely not an option...looks like we will have to start paying taxes on these receipts...and that will be after we figure out how to convert receipts from BH activity to WH ones....

    Looks to me as the mark of a new era lest you plan on being fined thrice the amount of receipts (if you infringe FEMA) or worst still arrested for tax evasion.

    The best way is call their customer support and make you clear what their needs to lift the limited account and do the necessary things then they will surely lifted your limit for sure... My account got limited for more than 6 times :)
