Ignorance is bliss, or so they say

Can someone please explain PayPal logic to me?

Why is there a limit to how much money you can spend unless you become "verified"? Is this just a ridiculous ploy to get me to give them my bank information? And if I don't comply, does this mean I have to wait "X" number of days before I can buy more? This is important to me because I'm in the middle of buying my shop inventory and ya'll have some crazy stuff I want and simply can't resist. What's the deal here? Can they seriously tell me I can't buy anymore???

Can someone help me before my brain melts completely?

Thanks in advance.

I don't know Kate (yeah, you can thank me for my big help later haha)! Why don't you just give them your info? Thats' a bunch of BS to me! Sorry chica!

hmm.. I forget how - I think you have to have certain number of transactions from or with "verified" sellers. I have this status, I will go investigate how I received it. I remember I even blogged about it because you get a little "badge" you can put anywhere (namely your website, but whatever), which, I thought was fun!
Okay I'll be back if I have info -

yes, yes you were right. You have to add your bank account info. I did this to transfer funds. So...yes. I answered your answer. Aren't I useful? :)

See, that's weird. I thought it was just to transfer funds, like from my personal PayPal account to my business PayPal account, but it's telling me that I won't be able to make another purchase if I don't go through the "verification" process. I'm not afraid to provide my account info, so it's not like I don't trust it. I just find it incredibly hard to believe that they'll actually cut you off from buying crap if you don't give them your personal information. Sounds like a bunch of poop if you ask me.
