    Hey guys,

    so my paypal got limited sometime last week.

    I called paypal last friday and told them some of the stuff I couldn't provide proof on. Because they didn't fit for my paypal account(the business proof)

    Then the nice lady told me I should go down to a personal account(I have premium at the moment) and she told me it's because when I made a paypal account you needed premium. I thought fair enough and she said she would tell that to the department which takes care of limitation.

    Now I just called them again, since they didn't answer to my emails or anything. A lady which seemed to have a hearing aid since she couldn't really understand me(maybe my rusty voice maybe something else) said that it can take up to 30 days for them to sort such a thing like this out:eek:

    How long have it generally taken for those of you who got your paypal limited, before they sorted it out?

    And also I can see I should be able to recieve money while it's limited, but one who was about to pay for a service couldn't so I am scratching my head here.

    Was it because it got limited exactly the same time he tried to pay the money request I sent him?

    I hope somebody on here can shed some light on things :)

    i was limited 2 times before (once before i verified my account and once after that), i provided them all the proofs they needed in both cases and they lifted the limit in a few hours (i haven't even called them), but if you can't provide all the proof they need for any reason, i guess the process will last longer

    receiving payments until your account is limited depends on the type of limitation, in some limitations you may still receive payments (they tell you exactly what you can and can't do until the limitation lasts)

    yea, most likely the payment of your customer triggered their "security system", and also most likely it doesn't even matter if it was a money request or not (probably he sent it to you from a non-verified account)

    p.s. and your account is premier not premium ;)
