PayPal Sign Up Problems


Even though PayPal is, perhaps, the most popular service for making payments online nowadays, there are certain PayPal sign up problems that might arise. In this part of our guide, we tried to list these problems and solutions to them, so we hope that it will help you to avoid such issues.

I don’t have a mobile phone number (I don’t want to provide PayPal with my mobile phone number). Unfortunately, there is no way how you can get around it. PayPal literally requires each of its users to provide a phone number, and you are not an exception. We also highly discourage you from using third-party apps to confirm a fake phone number, since it will compromise your PayPal account.

PayPal requires me to provide my documents to verify my identity. As a matter of fact, you will not get the full functionality of PayPal, unless you verify your identity with your ID, international passport, or a valid driving license. If you are not able to provide any of these, you can send your birthday certificate along with a document, issued by the government, to the PayPal support through the Resolution Center.

I don’t receive a verification email address from PayPal. First of all, you should check different folders (such as “Updates”) and look for this verification letter. Also, make sure that you have entered a correct email address. If you didn’t find it, head to your PayPal account’s settings and resend the verification letter. If the problem persists, please contact the PayPal customer support.
