  1. Can I ask, I have successfully registered a Paypal account but my name has a seal and missing middle name so can I withdraw money to my bank account ??
    And if not withdraw dk, then how do I do it ???

  2. At first I entered my first and last name incorrectly but now I followed the instructions and also took a photo ID to change my name ... but I haven't seen the name changed after a few days?

  3. Let me ask:
    When I try to pay at Paypal, can I get the visa or do other tests work?
    Do I have to pay at Paypal account or have to verify it?
    If you can't add it to Paypal, can someone transfer it to me?

    Please answer, I am very concerned

    • Can be transferred to you, because your paypal account is using gmail. But if you don't link your account, you won't be able to withdraw the funds. You link your normal bank account number without a visa, without any verification at the bank. But the withdrawal transaction is limited to 100 USD per transaction. About the limit of how many withdrawals per day I do not know. You can learn more.

  4. Can I ask if I transfer money from my paypal account via my normal payment account, can I receive money at my account? or that account must be linked to paypal before withdrawing money. thank!
