More PayPal policy changes, effective September 19, 2022

In June, we reported PayPal changes to fees and friends & family transactions. More changes are coming in September, again focusing on cracking down on users trying to avoid fees and a new way to identify websites that violate PayPal policies. The changes are pretty significant and affect both business and personal accounts.

Policy updates effective September 19, 2022:

  • U.S. business accounts will not be able to receive personal transactions from PayPal accounts outside the U.S. starting October 31, 2022.
  • U.S. PayPal accounts will not be able to send personal transactions to business accounts outside the U.S. starting October 31, 2022.
  • The Agreement to Arbitrate will provide revised information on the process if disputes arise between you and PayPal, including additional information about arbitration, small claims disputes, and the payment of associated fees.
  • If you integrate or reference PayPal services on your website, we are clarifying that PayPal may use automated technologies (e.g., website crawling) to assess your website to ensure compliance with the user agreement and to combat fraud.
  • Pricing for sending and receiving certain donations is being updated. The new pricing will result in fee increases for some transactions. You can preview the Consumer Fees Page and the Merchant Fees page that will be effective following such changes.
