    ... and about 10 other threads.

    Long story short - there's no such thing as a virtual bank account in the UK (and in most other countries for that matter). Banks all around the world have KYC regulations that they have to follow and therefore they MUST make sure of your identity, and in some countries, such as the UK, see you in person, in order to open an account for you.

    That said a company called Payoneer are experimenting with a US-based virtual bank account service. Read about it in the threads I've linked and/or do a search on BHW for payoneer.

    Virtual Bank Accounts to verify Paypal cost $15 each. The problem here is the UK paypal issue. I have not seen a cheap solution. If you don't mind paying say £20 to £50 there are UK virtual accounts that you can get to verify your UK Paypal.
    I would advise that you either open a US paypal account or one one from say India.

    You can get virtual bank account from many banking services which offer virtual bank account. For example, bank of america provides virtual bank account. So you can try that. Or you can buy virtual bank account.

    My understanding is that HSBC has a UK website available, which can permit a person who applies to get an online account. In addition, sites like vccandbank provide templates for faux US/CA/UK driver's license to help verify a UK paypal.
