I made a PayPal account 8 months ago and signed up with another nationality mistakenly (choosing nationality before the sign up page at the time wasn't clear and many cities all over the world share my city name; I'm not sure how I signed up but I ended up with US nationality) and I linked a MasterCard. When I received a payment from a freelancing site about a couple weeks ago, I tried taking the money on the MasterCard and it didn't work. So I tried linking my Visa with the same billing address as the MasterCard and it isn't the right address so it gives me errors. I can't add the right address as the nationality is set to US. So
- I can't receive the money on a card
- I can't accept the money on the account and use to buy any product online as I don't have any document to prove I'm a resident of the US
- I can't send the money to a new account I made linked with a Visa
Will the money will be in
waiting status forever? Can I do anything about it?
