Access Member Information

Use the information PayPal publishes about members to scope out sellers and buyers, and see what they can learn about you.

While all human relationships are built on trust, you might not want to rely on blind faith alone when your money is at stake. To help you determine which vendors and customers to trust and which to avoid, PayPal offers information about its members’ standing with PayPal.

Looking Up a User’s Status

You can check any PayPal account’s User Status by initiating (but not necessarily completing) a transaction with that user:

  1. Log in to your PayPal account.

  2. Click the Request Money tab.

  3. Enter the email address of your prospective buyer, enter an amount to request (a single penny will do), and select the type Goods (other).
