hi there

my paypal is verifiied (got the 4 digits to my bank account)

but still, as i approach the finish line of posting an item for sale on ebay,

it says:

"To have this restriction lifted, you need to become PayPal Verified* and then link your verified PayPal account to your eBay account. Once you've completed this process, you'll be able to sell on any eBay site worldwide"...

well... it is verified...

am i doing something wrong?

Hmmmm. How long ago was your Paypal account verified?  If it was just today or the same day you tried to list on eBay, then you might have to wait 24-48 hours for it to process.

Also, you stated that the Paypal account is verified but did you then link it to your eBay account?  I believe it's a separate step.  The link posted above by recyclit123 gives step by step instructions.

If it doesn't work after completing those steps then call eBay customer support as it may be a bug in the system.
