    PayPal Age Issue

    I am new to HUKD and I was looking into buying/selling on this website. The only problem, I don't have a PayPal due to the age restriction(i'm only 16). Is there any other way I can pay/recieve money?

    paypal dont check your age. As long as you have a debit card you can open an account

    yeah, lie about your age, it works for other members. or you could ask to use your parents paypal account

    What will happen if an account is reported to have a user under the age of the restricted age?

    What will happen if someone reports me for breaking the age restriction?



    how will they know, well apart from the obvious you have now advertised the fact


    why can you not use your parents?

    I don't have a paypal account either. I always pay and receive by Bank Transfer. Do you have internet banking?

    i meant use their payal account to receive payments, not their bank account, they dont have to give you any details other than the name for someone to pay, they can check payments received and withdraw the money for you

    but they can legally have one, he cant, so surely it makes sense for them to get one, rather than the op get one

    Yea just lie about you're age & if you don't have a debit card use one of those prepaid ones

    If I can get away with having a PayPal account personally, I will. It's less hassle than making/using my parents.

    Yes. You can set up personal payments and also receive them. You just need to give the buyer your sort code and account number (not the long card number on the front of your card). Do you have your own bank account? If so, talk to your bank, or look online to find out more about Bank transfers :thumbsup:
