    Hi, I want to have a PayPal account, but I'm under 18 years old. Is there any way to do it? Maybe you can share your own experience? Thanx

    But just for the sake of alertness ,,, Do keep in your mind that you should not make fake proof Id's . It will be a disaster in longer run.

    Just put a fake DOB and get a VCC and it will be fine. If you provide fake bills n ID you will get into a right mess.

    PayPal doesn't allow it.

    Having an account while underage and using a VCC is almost asking for trouble. If your account becomes limited for any reason (it happens quite often to those who use VCCs), you will be out of luck on getting anywhere.

    Please do not teach him the illegal ways of skirting around a contractual obligations, if you are under 18, wait until you are 18, that's it!

    Maybe it would be better if you register the account with the information of your father or mother.And that would be better.When they ask billing info you just give it yours fathers inf:confused:f course you have to ask your father first.

    ha, good for you, if you are 18 or older. I'm 16 and I live with parents, but it doesn't mean that I don't want to earn some money.
    I don't exactly know what are those VCCs, but I'll go to the bank, take a Visa Virtuon card and that's it. I have a friend who is doing like this and he haven't experienced any problems yet :)

    Be careful though, you could risk losing everything you make. Its easier to just use a parent or guardians account until you're old enough.

    Sign up under your parent's name or wait till you are 18. As simple as that.

    If you sign up while you are below 18, you are violating their TOS and will get into big trouble if they ever do decide to investigate your account.
