How to lift the limits in place on your PayPal account

1) Click View Limits



Depending on your account type and status, the limits you see below may vary



In order to lift your sending limit, you need to verify your account

To verify your PayPal account, you can either add your bank account or get approved for a PayPal Plus Credit Card



For the purpose of this tutorial, we will verify our PayPal account using a bank account

3) Click Add Bank

If you have online banking set up, you can confirm your account almost instantly

You will need to enter your bank user ID and password

However, for this tutorial, we will not confirm the bank account online

6) Select Confirm your account in 3-5 days

With this method, PayPal will make 2 small deposits into your bank account. You can then either call your bank or check your next statement

Note that it can take up to 5 days for the deposits to show up on your bank statement

7) Click Continue

PayPal has now made 2 small deposits to your bank account. It will take about 3-5 days for these deposits to appear

You can look up the amounts online, by phone, or on your next bank statement

8) Click Continue



Until you enter the two deposits, your bank account will still show up here as unconfirmed

For this tutorial, we will enter the deposits from a bank statement

9) Go to your bank statement

The two deposits will be very small and be labeled as PayPal

10) Go back to your PayPal account

11) Select the unconfirmed bank account

21) Click Submit

22) Click the link to go to your account

Success! You can now withdraw unlimited funds from your PayPal account
