I currently have some USD 2000 in my Paypal account but there are limits to what I can withdraw and send.

I have enrolled in the Expanded Use Program but still haven't been able to complete it (waiting for four-digit number).

My questions are:

1 - How high can I set my Expanded Use limits per month (Brazil)?

2 - If I can't rise it high enough, how do I request a check from Paypal?

Thank you.

Paypal limits cannot always be explained... Sep 27, 2007


One of my two Paypal accounts is frozen since more than 12 months because they are unable to verify my identity - which they were obliged to do as soon as I had received a total of 6500 EUR on that account.

I am no longer searching for an explanation since even their customer support could not do anything but sending their standard answers from their list...

So I am simply using Moneybookers instead and I am happy with them, although I had a problem with their verification procedure too, but their customer support is working and solved the problem within 5 days.

Good speed,

feel with Harry Sep 27, 2007

Hi Harry,

I experienced the same problem with PayPal in regard to the verification. I really was annoyed - a turnover of 6500 euro within 3 years shall be suspicious in regard to money laundering? Oh no....

Nevertheless - when I finally send a fax with copy of my password, the problem had been solved within 12 hours.

I just recognized that Harrys comment has been removed and my answer is without any reference - sorry.

Regarding your problem: some weeks/months ago, when PayPal announced, that it is a bank now, they send a lot of information including all the limits.
It should thus be contained in their general business information.

By the way: I really would not take PayPal as transfer solution no. one.
It is expensive and all these limits are annoying.
