How long does paypal take to verify a bank account?

Hi, i recently sold something on eBay UK, and the buyer is telling me that he needs to verify his UK paypal account with the bank as he’s reached his limit. This involves paypal depositing small sums of money into his account which he will need to verify. So far, i’ve been waiting for 2 weeks now.

Does it really take this long or should i consider relisting my item? thanks!

    Relist the item. I would not verify bank accounts with paypal because I had my paypal stolen. I did have a verified bank account with paypal, but the administrators told me that my security question, password, email has been changed. I never autorized these changes. so, I don’t want your bank account stolen, so relist is better.

    There are 2 ways to get verified. It should not take longer than 2 weeks. Flag him with negative feedback and contact ebay for a refund.

    How can I become Verified without adding my bank account?

    There are two ways to get Verified.
    Add and confirm your bank account.
    Get approved for a PayPal Plus Credit Card. To apply for a PayPal Plus Credit Card, click the Plus Card link at the bottom of any PayPal page.

    What does it mean to be a Verified member of PayPal?

    To be Verified means you have successfully established your identity with us by confirming a bank account or getting approved for the PayPal Plus Credit Card or PayPal Buyer Credit.

    Verification provides many benefits:

    Higher spending power – There’s no limit to the amount of money you can send once you are Verified.
    Increased security – Verification not only offers you increased security, it lets others know you are a confirmed member of the PayPal community.
    More buyer and seller confidence – Buyers and sellers value your Verified status. It shows you have successfully passed PayPal’s identification checks.

    It takes two to three working days for you to confirm your details with paypal.They take two small amounts for 3p or 4p something to that amount anyway and it only takes up to 3 days for them to do this,once amounts are showing in your bank you log back into your paypal account and it then allows you to put in those two amounts and your paypal account is then sorted.Relist item and block seller as he is obviously trying to bide his time and cannot afford item.
