Notice of Amendment(s) to the Ireland PayPal Agreement(s)

Issued: 8 February, 2023


This Page

This page details and/or previews updates to PayPal users of changes to the Ireland PayPal User Agreement or other online agreements, policies, or statements that require notice. You can also review Past Policy Updates notices. Note that additional changes could be made to previewed agreements on or before the effective dates listed, provided the applicable notice requirements are met.


Upcoming Changes

We’re making changes to certain agreements (listed below) that govern your relationship with PayPal. These changes will take place automatically on the corresponding effective date(s) shown below.


Actions Needed

Please carefully review the notice below and familiarize yourself with the changes. By continuing to use our services after the changes take effect, you agree to be bound by those changes. Otherwise, no further action is needed from you to accept such changes. However, if you would prefer to decline them, then you will need to close your PayPal account prior to the applicable effective date, as described in the user agreement. Please note that the change is clarificatory only as you already are asked to agree to a SEPA mandate when adding a bank account to your PayPal account. We are merely clarifying this in the User Agreement.


Amendments to the Merchant Fee page

On 8 February 2023, we are clarifying that payments received by merchants from Alternative Payment Methods (APM) are subject to a rate of 1.2% plus fixed fee. This is what is charged currently rather than the fee of 3.4% which is erroneously reflected on the fee page currently. This fee will formally be changed on the Merchant Fees page on 10 April 2023. For the avoidance of doubt, the rate of 1.2% plus the fixed fee will continue to apply from 8 February.
