    Hello. Ive got a bit of a problem with papal. Currently I am £500 from my yearly receiving limit. Normally I would just submit the info and raise the limit, but the problem is that I am 17 years old. I cant find date of birth I used for me eBay and papal accounts since it wont show up in my profile (i have a business account). I am pretty sure that If I enter my real DOB - 1 year that it will be incorrect when compared to the one that I signed up with. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Are you sure they even ask for birthdate on PP, I checked the UK registration page and it doesn't ask for birthdate. If they ask about ebay just tell you put there wrong accidentally or w/e

    Thanks! I wasnt sure about that. Is the worst case scenario they limit me until my legal documents show that I am 18?

    There may be a slight problem, initially i signed up as a personal account which does ask for date of birth >.<. Since i later converted it to a business they probably have my DOB on record. Might just open a new paypal business account.

    Well i decided to just go ahead and it worked :D Really relieved since £50 a day is kinda life changing when you are 17 and preparing for university.

    hmm? strange i opened my paypal account when i was 16 and never had a problem since, and my ebay account was opened when i was 15 but i lied about my age on that one, i later went back and corrected it when i came of age, but i never had a problem with the age for either accounts, i don't think you have to worry about much, if worst comes to worst just say you made a mistake, no harm no foul
