In my search for a part-time online job, I discovered that it is impossible to get paid if I do not have a Paypal account. Upon singing up for a Paypal account, I also discovered that I need a credit/debit card to verify the damn thing. According to Paypal:
Confirming your credit/debit card is a PayPal security check which lets us know your card is in your possession. We call this our Verification process.
All PayPal accounts are initially ‘unverified’ and have withdrawal limits until you confirm your financial details with us.
Important: You can still use your PayPal account until you reach the withdrawal limits.
