So annoyed with myself!
I have my business Paypal account, and a few months ago they send a notice that I had to verify my business by sending proof of ID. Well, time flew by, and now my account is limited I can;t receive payments if I sell anything, or send payments if I want to buy anything.
I thought the sending ID would be simple…but there are 5 types they need! I can do 3 of them, but am stuck on the following:
- Proof Business Registrations - This helps us ensure that your business is licensed or registered in your industry. This isn’t a request related to the existence of your business. Acceptable forms of this document include broker-dealer, remittance or escrow licences.
What does that mean???
- Membership Information - Please provide proof of professional licences or trade memberships for your industry.
I’m a sole trader artist - I don’t have any of this stuff
I thought I was doing right by setting the Paypal account up as a business one, but I should have stuck to the simpler one!
I do have a second Paypal account, but that’s being used by my second Folksy shop. I’ve had to ask permission to use a Paypal account I run for a small fundraising group just so that I can accept payments when I make sales.
Grrrrrrrrrrrrr! If I had been organised and sorted this earlier I would have been able to contact Paypal and ask about it before the account got grounded
