This might be a surprise to a lot of people, but you can actually have an anonymous PayPal account. I have done it, and it worked. So if you are looking to send and receive money anonymously on PayPal, you better stick around, and we will tell everything. Before we go on, make sure to read more of our guides on Money Brighter.
PayPal is one of the most widely used online wallets for personal and business purposes. It can be used to send and receive money, pay bills and shopping items, and also as a payroll. It is just pretty much everything you can do to your credit or debit card but with further security.
But for some people, they do not want to be identified when doing financial transactions. There are a lot of reasons for this activity. And most of it is for personal and privacy reasons.
Whatever your reasons might be, it is yours and yours alone. Still, we will teach you or tell you how you can use an anonymous PayPal account the easy way.
Anonymous PayPal Account
Here’s the thing. Sometimes you just want to do transactions anonymously. It can be that you want to donate and help out people without having them find out who you are. Sometimes you just want to get a job done without the risk of getting identified. And then, there are times when you want to purchase something, and you do not want the seller to find out who you are.
It could be those reasons or something else. But whatever your reason is, it is out of our hands. We are just here to give you tips on how to create and use an anonymous PayPal account.
How to Create an Anonymous PayPal Account
So this is where it all starts. But before we do, let me tell you some important things first.
The method that we will provide and teach you is limited. And by limited, we mean that it has some significant limitations. So if you are looking to use PayPal for money laundering, this is not the article for you.
This tutorial is just for those small transactions. Those that do not really involve a considerable amount of money. Now, if you understand what we are trying to tell you, you can decide now whether you want to leave or stay.
Requirements for Anonymous PayPal Account
There are some requirements before you create an Anonymous Paypal account. Please read on to learn about them.
- An existing PayPal verified account (conditional but would be very useful)
- A burner PayPal account (the anonymous PayPal account)
- A fake ID (self-explanatory)
Verified PayPal Account
If you have those four requirements ready, let’s continue. The verified PayPal account is needed because you will need a source of funds. This is conditional because if you already have a set source of funds, then you can disregard this part.
A Fake ID
If you do not want to use your real name, this fake ID will be your anonymous PayPal account holder. Since the initial identification requirement of PayPal is just basic information, then this should do the trick temporarily.
Unverified PayPal Account
You see, new and unverified PayPal account has limits especially on the withdrawal capability. That means you can place as many funds as you want on the anonymous PayPal account, but it is limited to the withdrawal part.
Typically, an unverified account has a $10,000 withdrawal limit. That means you can only spend or take money from your account with that limitation. If that is alright with you, then this tip is for you.
That’s it. You now have an anonymous PayPal account that you can use for the meantime. As we have mentioned above, you can only send or withdraw money up to $10,000 per month. You can do the same again next month.
We hope this article has helped you with your research on an anonymous PayPal account. This might not be much, but this works. As far as we are concerned, this still works today as of the time of writing. And we have been using the anonymous PayPal account for almost three years now for donations and all.
