Error Message:


Are you trying to contribute to the campaign?

This message means that the Campaign Owner’s PayPal account is not fully Verified as an Organization or Business account.

Not being “Verified” simply means that they fill in more information about their PayPal account. Once they do, the error message should go away.

To help resolve the issue and help the campaign owner start being able to accept contributions again as soon as possible, please do one of two things:

  1. Contact the Campaign Owner and provide them with a link to this page, or
  2. Submit a ticket with the support button in the bottom left corner. Please provide us with a link to the campaign so we can contact the Campaign Owner to help them out 

Are you the Campaign Owner?

This message means that your PayPal account is not fully Verified and you have reached a payment limit. This often happens at the $5,000 and $10,000 funding limits. PayPal simply needs you to answer a few more questions to complete the set up of your account.

IMPORTANT: Keep in mind that we don’t have access inside PayPal’s system, so our Customer Service agents cannot provide any direct help in getting through any of these steps. The information on this page is for reference only, and may become outdated over time.

If you need help getting through any of these steps, please contact PayPal directly. They can be contacted through their support page here.


After that’s done, you’ll want to refresh the email address in our system to make sure our system is aware of your PayPal account’s new status.

Please follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your account at http://fundrazr.com/manage 
  2. Click the “Edit” link for your campaign in the left column 
  3. Click the Payments tab in the left column
  4. Click the “Check it again” button as shown above and the message should disappear. 

After following these steps, the message should go away. If the messages does not go away, there may be more needed to complete the set up of your PayPal account. Asking PayPal directly for further instructions is best.
