If I was to receive a $50 donation through paypal, could I use that same $50 to purchase Yola Pro - for example

I know that when you have money in paypal you can receive that money via mailed check without being verified (using a bank) because I've done it, but can you also make other purchases without being verified?

ok, I think you need to be verified, they did however, allow me to request a check in the mail. I closed my previous bank account and I don't intend on reopening it until I have a need for it. Banks in US take way too many fees. I once got two overdraft charges for one overdraft and they wouldn't refund me the money. And then another bank I had an identity theft thing and they never resolved it. So unless I'm making lots of money, I'm not opening up a bank account. I'll just request a check in the mail and then put it on my credit card if I need to buy online.
