Amendments to the PayPal User Agreement

We are deleting from the section in the User Agreement headed “Actions We May Take if You Engage in Any Restricted Activities” the provision under which, if you use your PayPal account primarily for the purposes of your trade, business, craft or profession and you violate the Acceptable Use Policy, PayPal may deduct from any PayPal account you control the sum of USD 2,500 (or the prevailing equivalent in the currency of the country in which you reside) per violation of the Acceptable Use Policy (the Clause). We are also deleting references to this Clause in the corresponding heading and removing unnecessary wording relating to damages. These deletions will take effect on 17 July, 2023. In the meantime, for any new claims PayPal may have arising after the date of this notice under the Clause, we will not enforce our rights under such provisions.

Review the updated PayPal User Agreement


Effective 14 August, 2023:

Mayotte users will be subject to the French Legal Agreements for PayPal Services from the effective date.
