    Something that maybe helpful to some - hosting websites with Paypal merchant US accounts

    If you have a US Paypal business account and you have users added (limited roles or whatever) and those users are are not identified in some way or another, then Paypal will limit your account (not even allow to receive payments - ridiculous) if you do not send photo ID of the users account to Paypal.

    It's a bit of a joke, cause they expect that all users will be US based and who on earth from outside of the USA (if such users are developers, accountants, etc) would want to send their photo ID to them (especially nowadays being USA paypal for govt or either).

    So if you have users, and don't really need them for now, my suggestions remove till Paypal does this sweep and add users back as needed per task.

    Some new gov't requirement - that I am yet to find nor paypal staff is aware what it is to forward and share to merchants that have been limited.

    If you do get this limitation notice, they will claim you can not remove users or do anything, but actually you are able to delete users.

    after removing the user, you don't have to verify them, correct?

    Well maybe you wont get the warning most likely.

    and of course you should not verify them, who would accept this non-sense.
