If you have an unverified PayPal account, you may not be able to use PayPal fully. Having an unverified account limits some of PayPal’s most important functions, such as how much you can withdraw ($500 per month for unverified users) or how you can transfer funds.
Payments can be made through PayPal accounts without verifying their identity. In any case, without verification, you will be limited in how much money you can withdraw from the account to your bank account (the amount varies by country). The first thing you need to do is sign in to your PayPal account.
