If you are facing any problem using PayPal, then this Q&A platform and my article for you. Here you will get to know why are you facing such difficulties to open your PayPal Account. One of the reasons may happen is that your PayPal account has been frozen.
Why is your PayPal account frozen?
PayPal may not be functioning properly for a variety of reasons. It's possible that the site is unavailable, or that you have an unverified account or insufficient funds in your account. It's also possible that your bank account or credit card hasn't been properly confirmed.
One of the main Reasons PayPal frozen accounts is a sudden change and rise in transactions from your account
You have transferred a huge amount to an account or vice versa
Multiple refunds have been sent from your account
Someone has reported fraud against your PayPal account
Someone or you are trying to access your account from multiple IP addresses
You are trying to access your account from a suspicious location
You have violated any term that has been set by PayPal
How long does PayPal take to unfreeze an account?
The time it takes to remove a restriction varies based on the circumstances. The majority of restrictions are withdrawn within five days, although some may take longer. You should receive a response from us within 2-3 business days if you've completed the steps in your Resolution Center.
How to unfreeze a PayPal account?
To unfreeze your PayPal account is to clear your judgement. The process is known as "vacating" the judgement. Your account will be automatically released if the judgement is vacated. Without a judgement, a creditor or debt collector has no power to freeze your account.
