What does PayPal verification mean?

A member who is 'PayPal verified' has confirmed their identity with both eBay and PayPal.

Once you're PayPal verified, you can:

Enjoy increased credibility with other buyers and sellers on eBay 
Raise your sending and withdrawal limits  
List your items on international eBay sites

To list an item on a different eBay site from which you initially registered, you may need to be PayPal Verified and have your eBay account linked to your PayPal account. Learn more about using PayPal to sell internationally.
