Policy Updates

This page informs users in advance of important changes to the PayPal service, its User Agreement, or other policies. This page displays policy updates with future effective dates. Go to “Past Policy Updates” for previous policy updates.

We encourage you to review this Policy Update to familiarize yourself with all of the changes that are being made to the PayPal User Agreement, Privacy Policy and PayPal Here Agreement. These updates will be posted at least 30 days prior to their effective date. These changes will not apply retroactively and will become effective May 15, 2014. If you do not agree to these modified terms, you should discontinue your use of PayPal and its services.

Amendments to the PayPal User Agreement

Effective Date: May 15, 2014

Section 11.1 is being amended to reflect that U.S. Sellers who sell an item to buyers in the U.K. will be subject to the U.K. buyer protection rules which may have greater coverage for buyers. The revised Section 11.1 reads as follows:

11.1 PayPal Seller Protection.
PayPal Seller protection is protection we provide Sellers from Claims, Chargebacks, or Reversals that are based on:
•Unauthorized Transaction or
•Item Not Received

PayPal Seller protection is available for eligible payments from buyers in any country. When a U.S. seller sells an item to a U.K. buyer, the U.K. buyer protection rules will apply to that transaction.

Section 11 of the User Agreement currently requires that sellers obtain signature confirmation for transactions of $250 USD or more in order for a transaction to be eligible for Seller protection for an Item Not Received Claim. That Section also currently includes a table for the corresponding foreign equivalency amount. This section will be changed to increase the dollar amount required for signature confirmation from $250 USD to $750 USD, and the foreign equivalency amounts are also being increased.

The revised Section 11.4 reads as follows:

11.4 Proof of Shipment, Proof of Delivery and Signature Confirmation Requirements.

“Proof of Shipment” is online or physical documentation from a shipping company that includes all of the following:
•The date the item is shipped.
•The recipient’s address matches the shipping address on the Transaction Details Page.
•The recipient’s address, showing at least the city & province, or city & country or postal code (or international equivalent).

“Proof of Delivery” is online documentation from a shipping company that includes all of the following:
•The date the item is delivered.
•The item’s status as delivered.
•The recipient’s address matches the shipping address on the Transaction Details Page.
•The recipient’s address, showing at least the city & province, or city & country or postal code (or international equivalent).
•Signature Confirmation as described below if the full amount of the payment, including shipping and taxes, is $750 USD, or its foreign currency equivalent provided below:

Amendments to the PayPal Here Agreement

Effective Date: May 15, 2014

Section 8 of the PayPal Here Agreement will be amended to clarify the additional protective actions that PayPal may take with respect to the use of PayPal Here, which include limits on the withdrawal of funds received from Keyed and/or Scanned Transactions. A User can obtain information about the specific limit applied to its Account by referring to email notices detailing such limit to the User. Section 8 will also be revised to remove duplicative language found in Section 10.6 of the User Agreement. For clarity, Section 8 will now make specific reference to Section 10 of the User Agreement.

The revised Section 8 reads as follows:

8. Additional Protective Actions.

In addition to the actions we may take as described in Section 10 of the User Agreement, we may take the following actions in connection with your Account and/or your use of the PayPal Services:
1.Keyed and/or Scanned Transactions – Withdrawal Limits. For payments processed as Keyed Transactions and/or Scanned Transactions over a rolling 7-Day period, PayPal may limit your ability to withdraw such funds in excess of certain amounts as determined by PayPal. After 30 Days, these reserved amounts will be available for withdrawal. PayPal will provide notice to you in the event it applies such a withdrawal limit to your Account.
2.Additional Actions. We may take other reasonable actions we determine are necessary to protect against the risk associated with your PayPal Account, such as requesting additional collateral from you such as a letter of credit or a personal guaranty, or limiting transactions to those made within the country of your account. PayPal may contact your customers on your behalf in the event PayPal is investigating potential fraud.
3.Information. In order to determine the risk associated with your PayPal Account, PayPal may request at any time, and you agree to provide, any information about your business, operations or financial condition. We reserve the right to reassess your eligibility for any Product if your business is materially different from the information you provided in your application.
