A client has corporate PayPal and it's convenient for thim to use it. Whereas for me not, Transferwise is better for me.

Can he send USD from his PayPal to my borderless TW account? now in 2019. People say that it used to be possible, there're instructions out there. But since recently, it appears, they say it's no longe possible.

Or to Paysend from his PayPal?

I was researching this some time ago... And what I found out is that if you're adding us bank account (which you would add if you want to connect TW with pp) PayPal doesn't know to who the bank account belongs to.. so you could in theory connect any us bank account with pp. You will have to verify it of course but that is not a problem

My PP account is several years old. This morning I sent $30 to someone, and fucking Paypal made my account limited and frozen the payment too.

verify for what? For sending money from PP too it? Or only if I need to spend money from it?
That is, my client would need to verify my TW account added to his PP before sending money?

Ok my situation was like this :

I had a verified perianal pp account
My girlfriend (different last name and address ) had payoneer and I had my own payoneer
I connected both payoneer accounts to PayPal , using their us bank account , at first pp didn't let me..
So I called them and asked what is wrong , they asked if I'm trying to connect virtual bank account , I said of course not.. I opened that account myself in USA ... They said ok , you will get an email from us.. got the email like few hours later that I have 24 hrs to connect that account with my pp .
Same thing for my girlfriend

Then I needed to verify the bank accounts , they deposit a small sum or they withdraw idk but you need to verify it like that , very easy... And simple

After that I used that setup for a few years , for the last two years I don't use pp and more... I closed my account.

So don't know who is paying to who in your case but if something didn't change you should be able to connect TW with PayPal , then you'll need to verify the tw bank account and that's it.. should be good to go.. also bare in mind that if pp asks you of it's virtual bank account you have to say that it isn't and that you opened your account yourself.. in USA.

You have to verify your account if it gets limited by PayPal. They made it very clear in their Terms and also when you login to your account, click limits and actually read what they say there.

He can not send from his PayPal to your transferwise account.
He can transfer to his own bank account. It might technically be possible that he links your transferwise account to his PayPal, the names in the accounts are supposed to match but its not always checked. However then he could also withdraw from your account (transferwise doesn't support that yet, but says they are working on it).

You can link Transferwise borderless usd to PayPal, it doesn't always work but normally.

If you are using us bank account feature from TW it doesn't matter which name is registered with TW .
I've done it before just using payoneer not TW.

So pretty sure you can do it... Easy enough to try and see for yourself...

Different countries. Currency - same.
Okay

I totally agree, it would be faster to simply try with a small amount then waiting for replies here which most often wouldn't be anything else then simply suggestions.
