    Well photoshop. Get real invoice of some sort,scan it(or maybe you find some example invoices online) and change the text with photoshop for example.

    This sounds like a good idea. You can actually hire someone over here or any other site to help you get a picture perfect invoice.

    Never thought to ask them why they need a invoice?

    I had one before and I refused, I rang them up stating that they are not the tax man, I don't need to prove shit to them (other than bank, address blah) - After 10 minutes they put my account back as they couldn't really give me a answer other than the computer said they needed one!

    Oh always have a few back up accounts :)

    This is so interesting.... We really need to find an answer for this one.. seems like it's happening left and right... in anycase the best remedy is to not let it happen at all... what do you guys think triggered this?

    If anybody needs any help with invoices, supplier info, photo ID, bank statements etc that PayPal asks for during the limitation then I can help.
    Ive dealt with 100's of limitations and can do all the documents for you for a small fee.
    P.M. me and we can discuss it (I cant send private mess until i have over 15 posts)

    If you make serious business with paypal, always use a few accounts. They will always find something to block your account. And if you don´t fight back they will also keep YOUR money.
    This PP sobs, limited and blocked 2 of my accounts with both between 6K - 9K Dollar/Euro on it. One of them i got back after f++cking their phone a month. The other is lost.

    As far as i know is PP a Bank, at least in eurpean countries it have the same status like a regular Bank.
    But you have done the right thing, WTF they want all the proof for if there are no issues in transactions ?
    I think they just hope you can´t bring a proof and so they can keep your money in the account.

    Normally, there is no reason for paypal to ask for an invoice ... nor is there a reason for you to send them an invoice ....

    Except there is a buyer's complaint of course .... if you are selling replicas or item is not as described etc and the buyer files a complaint with paypal they will ask for invoice etc.

    hmmm. this might also be the reason why my supplier in china advised me not to pay using paypal and just use western union if the amount is more than $100.

    Don't anyone use microsoft office anymore?
    Code:
    http://www.graytex.com/blank-invoice-template.htm
    Or google come to think of it.
    Funny thing about google is everyone wants to be at the top of it
    but no one uses it.

    I think your supplier said that cause they want to be protected against chargebacks. Also, if you think people in the west have it bad when it comes to Paypal, be glad if you are not Asian. If you even can get an account as an Asian, they will lock it as soon as their Bayesian filters pick up any abnormality (like logging on from a new IP).

    To the OP. Faking an invoice is real easy. Also, if you are in Europe and if your Paypal is in your real name: do what someone else here stated. Just remind them that they are a registered financial institution. Since they already have your ID-info, ask them to shape the f**k up or you will report them to any financial oversight authority you can find. I've had my share of limitations on Paypal, and have always managed to make them see my way within a couple of days.

    Good luck.
