    Hi,
    I have a Doubt
    PayPal requires CC or US Bank Account to verify the account
    But it seems that many are using VCC [Virtual Credit Card] instead of that
    So is VCC legal to verify the PayPal Account???
    SEMrush
    Thanks :)

    Many people to use a Virtual Credit Card (VCC). But I don’t recommend it because the purpose of the PayPal verification is to validate your personnel information. Their goal is to verify the information given by you is correct. VCC’s cheat the system and do so in such a way that compromises the entire network. So even if you were able to verify using VCC, there is constant risk that PayPal might detect it and freeze your account. That’s why I don’t recommend using a Virtual Credit Card (VCC) :p

    VCC is legal, how it is used for however can be illegal. For example if you use the VCC for trying to convince Paypal that you are from a different country other than the country you are in, it is not legal.

    No,dont verify your Paypal account using Vcc as there is a high risk involved and Paypal might suspend or freeze your Paypal account.Its better to verify with Credit card.

    I think Paypal have known about the VCC, and still they are not doing anything about it.
    On my country, where the CC is still "luxury" things, people will prefer for the cheaper one, and it is VCC.
    I think if paypal take action regarding VCC issue (they don't allow it), the number of registration in some "poor" country will go down.

    It will be problematic for sure. When PayPal knows that you are from different country then you, your money as well as your account are gone.
