Many users were facing issue with creating a Paypal account and verify it in India. Generally Paypal doesn’t allow Indian users to send payments from one paypal account to another paypal account within India. But paypal is used to receive and send payments to the countries other than India. To receive payment you must link your bank account and to send payments you generally need a credit card linked account. One more limitation is that Indian accounts are auto withdrawn once the payment is received. Also you cannot send payment from the existing funds in your account, you must have linked credit card. The below is the step by step process to create and verify paypal account in India.
