Issued: 8 July 2024

Amendments to the PayPal User Agreement
Effective: 10 October 2024

  • We are updating the “Your use (as a seller) of personal data; Data protection laws” section of the PayPal User Agreement to remove any duplicative language and improve clarity.
  • We are clarifying that merchants are permitted to share customer personal information provided to them by PayPal with their service providers. We are also asking that merchants acknowledge they have the rights and authorities to share personal data with PayPal. This is a requirement under existing user agreement for merchant to comply with applicable data protection laws.
  • We are removing the following documents from the Legal Agreements page: (i) Key Payment and Service Information and (ii) User Agreement Reference Notes. Any references to User Agreement Reference Notes will be deleted from the User Agreement. A pdf version of the Key Payment and Service Information document and User Agreement Reference Notes is available using the links below.

Amendments to the PayPal Online Payment Services Agreement

  • We are changing this agreement to introduce a new service, the SEPA Direct Debit service, which will allow merchants to accept SEPA Direct Debits as a payment method. Consequently, we are renaming this agreement to PayPal Online Payment Services Agreement.
  • We are also changing our Merchant fee page to introduce new fees relating to this service.
  • We are introducing new terms and fees for Fraud Protection Tools, as an optional additional service.

Amendments to the PayPal Alternative Payment Methods Agreement
Effective: 8 July 2024

  • We are removing the following redundant sentence in section 3: “The additional percentage-based fee for international commercial transactions set out in the User Agreement does not apply when you receive APM Payments”. This information is already covered in the PayPal Merchant Fee page. Removal of this sentence does not change how PayPal charges for APM Payments or additional percentage-based fees for international commercial transactions.
