Paypal use your sort code and account number to pay in 2 small sums of money into your account. After a set time they ask you to check your account and tell them the value of the sums deposited. That way they know that you are the legitimate account holder. Good security. I must say that I find all of the adverse comments about Paypal and ebay on this website quite surprising as I have had nothing but good service and help from them. If you read the info on paypal you will find that there is a limit to the value of the purchase you can make without being verified. Again another security measure. I fell into the same trap as you, and it took me some time to sort out. But was very pleased with the manner in which the verification process was carried out.
To get verified may take a few days, and you will need to check your bank or credit card statement for PayPal's verification payment. This waiting procedure could cause annoyance with whoever you want to complete a money transaction with. It is best if you contact the person, and explain the situation. If they are verified, then they would know the procedures.
I agree with Bagsey. I have been with Paypal and ebay for some years now and had no problems, untill recently when I could not log in to my paypal account, so I e-mailed them and they responded in no time at all and it was sorted without any further problems. Much of what has been said about them are one off problems and should not be assumed as the norm.
