Verify Paypal account help?

Hello.

I currently hold commissions on deviantART, and I get paid through paypal whenever I finish a commission.

My problem is that I can't seem to get my account verified. I only have PostFinance (E-finance?) and a Pre-paid VISA Corner Card (Cornèr Bank?) as banks/cards.

How can I get my Paypal verified? I tried to link my PostFinance, but the first time it didn't work. And when I tried to link my Corner Card, it wouldn't work either. I may have made some mistakes, but I double checked everything.

Please help; I really need the money.

I think you might need a proper credit card to verify your account. They charge your credit card account with SFr 3,-- and leave a 4 digit code on the transaction. When you have verified it is your card, by giving PayPal the 4 digit code, the SFr 3,-- is credited to your PayPal account.

Cornercard can be either Visa or Mastercard (I have both through Cornercard), so that should be sufficient.

I originally had linked my PayPal account to an ordinary Visa credit card. Later on I changed it to a pre-paid PostFinance Mastercard. Never had problems.

Mine is linked to my Postfinance current account and I didn't have any problems with the verification process. Maybe try the process again. Good Luck!

Re: Verify Paypal account help?

I am trying to add my UBS account to Paypal, but it doesn't accept it. I keep getting this error message that i can only add numbers, without dashes or spaces. My UBS account has also letters. Any advice?
