Just sold a new laptop (~$800) with bin immediately payment required. the buyer is 0 fb but the id is 3 yr old (with +1 and -1 so net is 0). I am just wondering why his paypal is not verified for such an old account.

In the payment details it does say spp eligible and shipping address is confirmed. If I follow all ppal guidelines (ship to confirmed add with fedex with signature required, etc. do I need to worry about the UNVERIFIED? Does it mean the cc is possible stolen or something?

Unverified simply means the buyer does not have a bank account attached to his account. He would have to pay with either existing funds or a CC, and for that amount I'd bet it's a CC. As long as you follow the SPP rules, you should be fine.

Nobody bothers to read FAQ anymore? I think people selling lappys should know the difference between Verified and Confirmed, for their own sake

Thank you guys for refreshing me on this. I rarely see a paypal account is unverified, though.

I have an unverified paypal account that I've held for about four or five years. I just don't like the idea of linking the account directly to my bank account. If I ever HAVE to do it for whatever reason I'd probably open up a new account and put very minimal funds in there. I don't want to do that much work right now. Using a credit card or existing funds is much easier. HTH.
