    I have a guy in Canada that needs to verify a Paypal acct, I was assuming I could pick up a prepaid credit nFinanse or Vanilla for him at the store and have him put his legit address and info to the card and verify the account with the routing and account number given to him through the automated system..

    But he says there is a "Institution" number and some other 3 digit # you need (I'm not sure if its the 3-digit # on the back of the card) Can anyone with experience with Canadian PP accts or knowledge of this please give me insight.. thx.

    TL;DR:
    - Need to verify Canadian PP Acct
    - What type of prepaid card can I use to do this?

    He can use his bank account to do it
    or he can get a prepaid card from Western Union and a VCC will do too

    OK that was too much reading lol
    I m in Canada ! I verified my paypal account with my bank account (RBC)
    Then for some reason I closed that bank Account , I re-verified my bank account with a VCC for 3 Months ... Then I added a New bank account (BMO) and it was verified again
    And Now it s linked to a prepaied Wetern Union Credit Card and My BMO account.
    Everything works just fine , I receive payments into my paypal , I send payements, I send money to my bank account and Never had a problem . :)

    I have no idea , but I dont think you can get more than one , because they ask for two pieces of ID ...
