How to Restore Your Paypal Account Limitation

Are you an eBay user? All of a sudden suddenly your account freeze? Well, here’s what happened once again! A few weeks back, TechieDan has gotten his paypal account access being limited. Thus he can only receive funds but can never do any other transaction with it.

TechieDan finally resolved it by uploading documents which required photo ID and proof of address. Then suddenly after using paypal in the office, paypal account is once again limited. Finally found out the reason. The office is currently using a gateway or a proxy in the middle, thus Paypal detected it as an intrusion to the owner’s account, thus setting the account limitation once again.

This time with more serious documents needed to proof one’s ID. Here’s the latest update. A repeat of the previous email was sent again and this time, TechieDan did the same thing he did, uploading the same documents. Problem though, it wasn’t enough, as they now required more than just a driving license.

Here are the documents required this for resolving this matter.

Proof of ID

National Identity Card


Driving License

Proof of Address

Utility Bill (must correspond to user’s address and name)

Uploaded all, but since TechieDan is staying with his parents, there’s no utility bill under his name. Now what should those who faced the same problem do? Solution is to just find a utility bill of your house (same address as your other proof of ID) and upload it. Do write a short note, stating the reason your name is not the same.

If this still fail, do contact Paypal for more clarification on the matter. Contacted Paypal and this was their reply.
