New Paypal User

I've just set up a new account with Paypal and on entering my Bank Details it wants to deposit two sums of money (less than £1.00) to verify my bank details are correct then I reconfirm with them how much was deposited. As i'm ultra cautious when online and only buy on 'safe' sites is this standard practice with Pay Pal?

Thanks in advance!
