Add Bank Account

This is an important requirement to get removed your limitation. you can add any bank account but it must be indian bank. paypal send two small deposit to confirm your bank account. check your bank transaction history after 3-7 working days to receive two exact small deposit. come back with your two small deposit amount and enter wallet page to verify bank account.

purpose code for indian paypalPurpose Code

Purpose code is an important matter too. indian government want to know for what purpose you are making transaction. purpose code is important but noting complex.

I suggest to use Advertising and market research for blogger who making money through freelance job. actually outsourcing based service provider should select this one.

If you are getting payments for any others purpose select best one from the list. you can change purpose code later at anytime. also it can be changed for every transaction.

Additional verification requirement

You should have a credit card to make payment. adding a PAN number and bank account would allow you receive payment from any clients. make payment to some or send money  is not possible without adding a credit or debit card. you must have an international credit or debit card to send payment using your indian paypal.
