UPDATE: A new tip
oh my! i can't believe it.... my paypal account is now verified by linking to my smart money mastercard. i was having a hard time at first, but then just follow the instructions given here... and voila! my paypal account is now verified! the catch here, i think, is you have to unlock your smart card for internet transaction each and everytime to have to pay for the charges..., so your smart card must have a balance of at least 200php.... and always view your paypal account after each transaction for further instructions til you get verified... smart will text you the 4digit code you have to enter in order to complete the trnasaction and get verified...
