it puts a limitation on ur account not letting you do anything unless you send in a valid id over 18 years old. I already asked my parents and they just think everyone on the internet scams, so my question is, is there an alternative.
You definitely don't need to confirm your id, in britain anyway, you need to verify your account to add your bank account though, so the only way you can add money is with a debit card(not sure if you can), or sell stuff, or use a prepaid credit card
alright you fucks, ill back this kid up. Paypal changed their policy around 6 months ago, so you need photo id, proof of residence, and one other thing that im forgetting if you created your account recently. I had to send pics of a few documents, then i was good to go but until then i couldnt use pay. Suggestion to op: Find someone who had paypal close to you, pay them cash and go through their paypal. Anyone who uses ebay has paypal, im sure you know someone who uses ebay.
