New PayPal Accounts: When you first open up an account, you may have only up to $500 in sending limit. You should apply for the Expanded Use Program at PayPal as soon as you complete the checkout. This will help to speed up processing time of your order.

How do I expand my PayPal sending limit?

New applicants to PayPal (and those who have not completed the “Expanded Use Program”) will be asked to enroll in the Expanded Use Program before they may send any payments over $500. Once you confirm an email address, add a credit card, and enter your Expanded Use Number, your account will have an unlimited sending limit. American Express has decided to decline PayPal credit card transactions that are funded with an American Express Corporate Card. As a result, any attempts to register or use an American Express Corporate Card will be denied. Some accounts, at PayPal's discretion, may have a higher or lower limit before completing enrollment in the Expanded Use Program. Some transactions, at PayPal's discretion, may not apply towards the limit. To obtain your Expanded Use Number, you must pay a $1.95 Expanded Use Fee, log in to your PayPal account, and enter the four-digit Expanded Use Number associated with the $1.95 charge. After you have successfully entered your Expanded Use Number, you will receive a $1.95 bonus on the next PayPal payment you send. (This bonus may take up to 24 hours to process and be reflected in your PayPal account balance.) This Expanded Use enrollment will be complete and your sending limit lifted if and when you correctly enter your Expanded Use Number on the PayPal website. If you remove the funding source (e.g. the bank account or credit card) used to enroll in the Expanded Use Program, PayPal may require you to enroll in the Expanded Use Program again.

Can I still make payments at the school?
