  • If your account was created in Germany, you can only use PayPal if you are over 18 and can use ID to prove it.

If you live in one of these countries and your PayPal account does not have enough funds to cover the wallet top up, PayPal may charge your registered card or bank account, which may lead to an international transaction charge. To avoid this charge we recommend that you ensure that your PayPal account has sufficient funds to cover the payment.
