Paypal Credit Card Payment Processing Problem

I have a credit card payment processing problem, my credit card is connected to my paypal.com account, and I use Paypal.com to pay workers as I work at my mobile offices all over the planet, I am location independent, I do not have a home.

As part of the Paypal.com security for processing of payments, they want to call me, I am not in the USA, and my parents answer the number on my account. They have strict orders, if anyone asks to verify a payment on anything, they are to say no.

Skype.com Number
As part of the paypal credit card payment processing security, they said, I could add a new number. I tried to enter my Skype.com number; however, it is not connected with an address therefore it is not accepted by Paypal.com

Doe this mean, every time I pay with Paypal.com, I need to be in the USA to answer phone calls? I could use the Verizon Global Phone, maybe they have a address connected, that number will forward anywhere on the planet.

Guatemala Security
I tried to make a reoccurring payment to buy software while here in Guatemala, for some reason it refused. I called Paypal.com and they tested everything, their recommendation was for me to return to the USA. The Paypal.com support call I made, was answered by call center in Manila, Philippines.

Mobile Office blues, there is an ever increasing security of credit card payment processing, I am not sure what to do, I know I am in the extreme minority. However, the value of paying things online is to do it anywhere, not just from my home.
