In this post we will see how to successfully verify PayPal account for accepting international payments in India.


  1.  You should be at least 18 years old.
  2.  You should a Aadhaar card or any Address Proof.
  3.  You should have a PAN card.
  4.  You should have a bank account.


You have two choices-
1. Sign up for a personal account for shopping domestic and overseas. It is useful when you want to shop from other nation.
2. Sign up for a business account. It is used by freelancers and sellers to accept payments locally and overseas.

Here I am dealing with option 2 as I am a blogger and many websites( like Swagbucks) transfer money through PayPal.

You need to fill basic information like Name, Address, Country, etc during sign up process. You have to choose the purpose code to know where the funds are coming from (like I choose Software Consulting from Information Technology).


After your first login you will see many notifications regarding your account like doing KYC for receiving payments in PayPal. You need to go to the notification tab and click on :"To receive payments as per Indian regulations please complete tasks".

After that upload the following documents:
  •  Add Address Proof(Aadhar Card)
  •  Add PAN Card
  •  Add Purpose Code (This step is not required as we already mentioned purpose code earlier. )
  • Add Bank Account Proof (Like Passbook or Cancelled Check)
Now you are all set to link your bank account.

Final Steps 

Go to the Money tab and go to the option "Link a bank account". You need to enter your bank's Account number and IFSC code and after that PayPal will send you two small deposits within 5-8 days. Once you receive that amount you need to enter those two deposits to confirm your bank account. Now your PayPal is verified.
