You must agree with all of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement and any applicable agreements and Policies on the Legal Agreements page.

We may amend this Agreement at any time by posting a revised version on our website. The revised version will be effective at the time we post it.

This is an important document which you must consider carefully when choosing whether to use the PayPal Services. Please note the following risks of using the PayPal Services:

Payments received in your Account may be reversed at a later time, for example, if a payment is subject to a Chargeback, Reversal, Claim or is otherwise invalidated. This means that a payment may be reversed from your Account after you have provided the sender the goods or services that were purchased.

If you are an eBay Seller, you can lower the risk of a payment being reversed from your Account by following the criteria set out in the Protection for eBay Sellers section and by following the other guidance provided in the "Security Center page" accessible via every page of the PayPal website.

We may close, suspend, or limit your access to your Account or the PayPal Services, and/or limit access to your funds if you violate this Agreement, the PayPal Acceptable Use Policy, or any other agreement you enter into with PayPal.

2. Sending Payments.

2.1 Sending Limits. We may, at our discretion, impose limits on the amount of payments you can send through the PayPal Services. You can view your sending limit, if any, by logging into your Account and clicking on the View Limits link on the Account Overview page. If you have a Verified Account, we may increase your sending limits.

2.2 Default Payment Methods. When you make a payment, if you have not selected a Preferred Payment Method, PayPal will fund your transaction in this order (subject to availability based on your Payment Methods and country of registration):

  1. Balance
  2. Instant Transfer from your bank account
  3. Debit card
  4. Credit card
  5. eCheck

Note: If you do not want to use your balance, you must withdraw it before making a payment.

2.3 Preferred Payment Method. You may select a Preferred Payment Method each time you make a payment, except for a Preapproved Payment or a No Log-In Payment.

For a Preapproved Payment and, in most instances, a No Log-In Payment, you can select a Preferred Payment Method when you provide your initial authorization for this payment and through the My Preapproved Payments section of your Account Profile.

If you select a Preferred Payment Method but have available balance in your Account, your balance will be used to fund your payment. If eCheck is your Preferred Payment Method, it will be used to fund your PayPal payment, even if you have a balance. PayPal may limit the Payment Methods available for a transaction.

2.4 Refused and Refunded Payments. When you send a payment, the recipient is not required to accept it. Any unclaimed, refunded or denied payment will be returned to your balance or to your original Payment Method. We will return any unclaimed payment to you within 30 Days of the date you initiated the payment.

2.5 Merchant Processing Delay. When you send a payment to certain Merchants, you are providing an Authorization to the Merchant to process your payment and complete the transaction. The payment will be held as pending until the Merchant processes your payment. Some Merchants may delay processing your payment. In such an instance, your Authorization will remain valid for up to 30 Days. If your payment requires a currency conversion, the exchange rate will be determined at the time the Merchant processes your payment and completes the transaction.

2.6 Preapproved Payments. A Preapproved Payment is a payment in which you Authorize a Merchant to directly charge your Account on a one-time, regular, or sporadic basis. Preapproved Payments are sometimes called "subscriptions", "recurring payments”, “preauthorized transfers” or "automatic payments".

2.7 Stopping a Preapproved Payment. You may stop a Preapproved Payment at any time up to 3 Business Days prior to the date the next payment is scheduled to be made by notifying PayPal. To stop a Preapproved Payment, access the My Preapproved Payments section of your Account Profile and follow the links to stop the payment. You may also stop a Preapproved Payment by calling PayPal at 1-402-935-2050 (in the U.S.). Once you contact PayPal to stop a Preapproved Payment, all future payments under your agreement with the Merchant will be stopped. If you stop a Preapproved Payment you may still be liable to the Merchant for the payment or for other penalties under the terms of your agreement with the Merchant and you may be required to pay the Merchant through alternative means.

3. Eligibility for Use.

3.1 Ability to Receive Payments. The ability to receive payments varies by country. To determine whether you have the ability to receive payments, click here.

3.2 Automatic Transfer Countries. If you are a resident of an Automatic Transfer Country, then you have the ability to receive payments but you must withdraw the full amount of your payment through an available withdrawal method. If you do not do so, the amounts will be automatically withdrawn from your Account to your withdrawal method on a regular basis. For additional terms regarding Automatic Transfer, please click here.

3.3 Liability for Invalidated Payments. When you receive a payment, you are liable to PayPal for the full amount of the payment sent to you plus any Fees if the payment is later invalidated for any reason. This means that, in addition to any other liability, you will be responsible for the amount of the payment sent by the sender, plus the applicable Fees listed in Exhibit A (Fees) of this Agreement if you lose a Claim or a Chargeback, or if there is a Reversal of the payment.

You agree to allow PayPal to recover any amounts due to PayPal by debiting your balance. If there are insufficient funds in your balance to cover your liability, you must reimburse PayPal through other means. If a sender of a payment files a Chargeback, the credit card issuer, not PayPal, will determine who wins the Chargeback.

3.4 No Surcharges. You agree that you will not impose a surcharge or any other fee for accepting PayPal as a payment method. You may charge a handling fee in connection with the sale of goods or services, as long as the handling fee does not operate as a surcharge and is not higher than the handling fee you charge for non-PayPal transactions.

3.5 Receiving Personal Payments. If you are selling goods or services, you may not ask the buyer to send you a Personal Payment for the purchase.

3.8 Preapproved Payments and/or No Log-In Payments. If you receive Preapproved Payments and/or No Log-In Payments you must receive your buyer’s Authorization to the payment amount, frequency and duration prior to submitting the payment.

5.1 How to Withdraw Money. Depending on the country in which your Account is registered, you may withdraw funds from your Account in any of these methods: (a) by electronically transferring them to your U.S. bank account or to your local bank account, (b) by electronically transferring them to your Visa branded card, (c) through a PayPal initiated Automatic Transfer to your linked financial instrument, or (d) by requesting a physical check through the mail.

We will not send checks to post office boxes. If you would like us to send a check to an address that does not meet these criteria, you must contact Customer Service and provide the documentation that we request to verify your association with the address. If you fail to cash a check within 180 Days of the date of issuance, we will return the funds to your balance (minus a Fee).

5.2 Withdrawal Limits. Depending on the degree to which you have Verified your Account, we may limit your ability to withdraw funds until you comply with our requests for information.

You will remain liable for all obligations related to your Account even after the Account is closed.

7. PayPal Buyer Protection.

7.1 Types of Problems Covered. PayPal Buyer Protection helps you if you encounter either of these problems:

  1. "Item Not Received" (INR): You did not receive the item you paid for with PayPal; or

  2. "Significantly Not as Described" (SNAD) You received an item you paid for with PayPal but it is Significantly Not as Described (SNAD).

    If your problem is a transaction that you did not authorize, please see section 8 below.

An item is "Significantly Not as Described" (SNAD) if it is materially different from what the Seller described on its website or in the item listing. Here are some examples:

  1. You received a completely different item. For example,you purchased a book and received a DVD or an empty box.
  2. The condition of the item was misrepresented. For example, the description when you bought the item said “new” and the item was used.
  3. The item was advertised as authentic but is not authentic.
  4. The item is missing major parts or features which were not disclosed in its description when you bought the item.
  5. You purchased three items from a Seller but only received two.
  6. The item was materially damaged during shipment.

An item is not Significantly Not as Described (SNAD) if it is materially similar to the Seller's item listing description. Here are some examples:

  1. The defect in the item was correctly described by the Seller.
  2. The item was properly described but you didn't want it after you received it.
  3. The item was properly described but did not meet your expectations.
  4. The item has minor scratches and was listed as used condition.

7.2   Eligibility Requirements.

  1. To be eligible for PayPal Buyer Protection you must meet all of the following requirements:

    • Pay for the full amount of the item with one payment from your Account. Items purchased with multiple payments or installments are not eligible.
    • Send the payment to the Seller in the following manners:

      • For eBay items:

        1. through the eBay “Pay Now” button or the eBay invoice; or

        2. through the “Send Money” tab of your Account by selecting “eBay Item” or “Pay for eBay Items” and entering the required information.

      • For items bought on other websites:

        1. through the Send Money tab on the PayPal website, by clicking the “Purchase” tab, or by selecting the “Checkout with PayPal” button or otherwise selecting PayPal as part of a Seller’s checkout flow.

    • Open a Dispute within 45 Days of the date you sent the payment – then follow the online dispute resolution process described below under "Dispute Resolution"

    • Have an Account in good standing.

  2. For items purchased on eBay look for either a PayPal or eBay buyer protection message in the eBay listing. If you see a message, and you meet the eligibility requirements, then your purchase is covered by PayPal Buyer Protection. The buyer protection message will vary based on the eBay website. The message must appear on the top part of the listing and not under the “Description” or “Shipping and Payments” tabs. If the listing does not include the buyer protection message, then it is not eligible for PayPal Buyer Protection.

7.3 Ineligible Items. PayPal Buyer Protection only applies to PayPal payments for certain tangible, physical goods. Payments for the following are not eligible for reimbursement under PayPal Buyer Protection:

  1. Intangible items, including Digital Goods (subject to exceptions as listed in Section 7.6)
  2. Services
  3. Real estate
  4. Businesses (when you buy a business)
  5. Vehicles, including motorcycles, caravans, aircrafts and boats
  6. Custom made items
  7. Travel tickets, including airline flight tickets
  8. Items prohibited by PayPal's Acceptable Use Policy or by eBay's Prohibited or Restricted Items Policy
  9. Items which you collect in person, or arrange to be collected on your behalf, including at a retail point of sale
  10. Industrial machinery used in manufacturing
  11. Items equivalent to cash, including prepaid or gift cards
  12. Personal Payments

Even if your payment is not eligible for PayPal Buyer Protection, you can file a Dispute and resolve the issue directly with the Seller, however, PayPal will not find in your favor if you escalate a Dispute to a Claim when an item is not eligible for PayPal Buyer Protection.

7.4 Coverage Amount. If you are eligible for PayPal Buyer Protection and PayPal finds in your favor on your Claim, PayPal will reimburse you for the full purchase price of the item and original shipping costs.

PayPal will not reimburse you for the return shipping costs that you incur to return a Significantly Not as Described (SNAD) item to the Seller or other party specified by PayPal. If the Seller presents evidence that they delivered the goods to your address, PayPal may find in favor of the Seller for an Item Not Received (INR) Claim even if you did not receive the goods

7.5 Dispute Resolution. If you are unable to resolve a problem directly with a Seller, you can go to the Resolution Center and follow this process:

  • Open a Dispute. Open a Dispute within 45 Days of the date you made the payment to negotiate with the Seller for resolution of the Dispute.
  • Escalate the Dispute to a Claim. If you and the Seller are unable to come to an agreement, you can escalate the Dispute to a Claim within 20 Days after opening the Dispute.

    You must wait at least 7 Days from the date of payment to escalate a Dispute for an Item Not Received (INR), unless the Dispute is for $2,500 USD or more (or other currency equivalent). If you do not escalate the Dispute to a Claim within 20 Days, PayPal will permanently close the Dispute.
  • Respond to PayPal's requests for information in a timely manner. During the Claim process, PayPal may require you to provide documentation to support your position.
  • Comply with PayPal's shipping requests in a timely manner. For Significantly Not as Described (SNAD) Claims, PayPal will generally require you, at your expense, to ship the item back to the Seller, or to PayPal, or to a third party and to provide proof of delivery.

    For transactions that total less than $250 USD, proof of delivery is confirmation that can be viewed online and includes the delivery address showing at least city/state or postal code, delivery date, and the URL to the shipping company’s website if you’ve selected “Other” in the shipping drop down menu. For transactions that total $250 USD or more (or the equivalents in other currencies as listed in the table below), you must also get a signature confirmation of the delivery.

  • Claim Resolution Process. Once a Dispute has been escalated to a Claim, PayPal will make a final decision in favor of the buyer or the Seller. You may be asked to provide receipts, third party evaluations, police reports, or anything else that PayPal specifies. PayPal retains full discretion to make a final decision in favor of the buyer or the Seller. In the event that PayPal makes a final decision in favor of the buyer or Seller, each party must comply with PayPal’s decision. PayPal will generally require the buyer to ship an item that the buyer claims is SNAD back to the Seller (at the buyer’s expense), and PayPal will generally require a Seller to accept the item back and refund the buyer the full purchase price plus original shipping costs. In the event a Seller loses a Claim, the Seller will not receive a refund on his or her PayPal or eBay fees associated with the transaction. If you are a Seller and you lose a SNAD Claim because the item you sold is counterfeit, you will be required to provide a full refund to the buyer and you will not receive the item back (it will be destroyed).

7.6 Digital Goods Micropayment Disputes and Claims. Digital Goods are generally not eligible for coverage. However, if you file a Dispute for a Digital Goods purchase of up to the amounts in the table below, PayPal may, at its sole discretion, refund the transaction without requiring you to escalate the Dispute to a Claim.

PayPal may limit the number of Digital Goods refunds that you may receive. If these are limited or if your purchase is not eligible for coverage, you will still be able to follow PayPal’s standard dispute resolution processes described in this Section 7 to attempt to resolve the issue with the Seller directly.

7.7 Relationship between PayPal's protection programs and Chargebacks.   Credit card Chargeback rights, if they apply, may be broader than PayPal’s protection programs. Chargebacks may be filed more than 45 Days after the payment, may cover unsatisfactory items even if they do not qualify as SNAD, and may cover intangible items. You may pursue a Dispute/Claim with PayPal, or you may contact your credit card company and pursue your Chargeback rights. You may not pursue both at the same time or seek a double recovery. If you have an open Dispute or Claim with PayPal, and also file a Chargeback with your credit card company, PayPal will close your Dispute or Claim, and you will have to rely solely on your Chargeback rights.

Before contacting your card issuer or filing a Dispute with PayPal, you should contact the Seller to resolve your issue in accordance with the Seller’s return policy as stated on their auction or website.

7.8 No Double Recovery. You may not file a Dispute/Claim, or receive a recovery, for a purchase under PayPal Buyer Protection if you have already received a recovery for that purchase directly from eBay, the Seller or your credit card company.

8. Errors and Unauthorized Transactions.

8.1 Protection for Unauthorized Transactions and Errors. When an Unauthorized Transaction or an Error occurs in your Account, PayPal will cover you for the full amount of every eligible Unauthorized Transaction or Error so long as you follow the procedures discussed below.

An Unauthorized Transaction occurs when a payment is sent from your Account that you did not authorize and that did not benefit you. For example, if someone steals your password, uses the password to access your Account, and sends a payment from your Account, an Unauthorized Transaction has occurred. If you give someone access to your Account (by giving them your login information) and they conduct transactions without your knowledge or permission, you are responsible for any resulting use.

8.2 Notification Requirements.

  1. You should immediately notify PayPal if you believe:

    1. there has been an Unauthorized Transaction or unauthorized access to your Account;
    2. there is an Error in your Account history statement (you can access your Account history by logging into your Account and clicking on a link to “View all of my transactions” ) or in your transaction confirmation sent to you by email;
    3. your password or PayPal Mobile PIN has been compromised;
    4. your PayPal Mobile-activated phone has been lost, stolen or deactivated; or
    5. you need more information about a transaction listed on the statement or transaction confirmation.
  2. To be eligible for protection for Unauthorized Transactions, you must notify us within 60 Days after any Unauthorized Transaction first appears in your Account history statement. We will extend the 60 Day time period if a good reason, such as a hospital stay, kept you from notifying us within 60 Days.

    You should regularly log into your Account and review your Account history statement to ensure that there has not been an Unauthorized Transaction or Error. PayPal will also send an email to the primary email address you have provided in order to notify you of each transaction from your Account. You should also review these transaction confirmations to ensure that each transaction was authorized and is accurate.

For Unauthorized Transactions or Errors in your Account, notify us as follows:

  1. Use this form to file a report in the PayPal Security Center; or
  2. Write to PayPal, Attn: Error Resolution Department, P.O. Box 45950, Omaha, NE 68145-0950; or
  3. Call PayPal Customer Service at (402) 935-7733 (in the U.S.).

When you notify us, provide us with all of the following information:

  1. Your name and email address registered to your Account;
  2. A description of any suspected Unauthorized Transaction or Error and an explanation as to why you believe it is incorrect or why you need more information to identify the transaction; and
  3. The amount of any suspected Unauthorized Transaction or Error.

If you notify us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within 10 Business Days. During the course of our investigation, we may request additional information from you.

8.3 PayPal Actions after Receipt of Your Notification. Once you notify us of any suspected Unauthorized Transaction or Error, or we otherwise learn of one, we will do the following:

  1. We will conduct an investigation to determine whether there has been an Unauthorized Transaction or Error that is eligible for protection.
  2. We will complete our investigation within 10 Business Days of the date we received your notification of the suspected Unauthorized Transactions or Error. If your Account is new (the first transaction from your Account was less than 30 Business Days from the date you notify us), we may take up to 20 Business Days to complete this investigation. If we need more time, we may take up to 45 Days to complete our investigation (or up to 90 Days for new Accounts, or if your transaction was at a point of sale where you were physically present, or a foreign initiated transaction).
  3. If we decide that we need more time to complete our investigation, we will provisionally credit your Account for the amount of the suspected Unauthorized Transaction or Error. You will receive the provisional credit within 10 Business Days of the date we received your notice (or 20 Business Days for new Accounts). This will allow you to have use of the money until we complete the investigation. We will notify you of the provisional credit within 2 Business Days of the crediting. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within 10 Business Days (or 20 Business Days for new Accounts), we will not provisionally credit your Account.
  4. We will inform you of our decision within 3 Business Days after completing our investigation.

    If we determine that there was an Unauthorized Transaction or Error, we will promptly credit the full amount into your Account within 1 Business Day of our determination. Or, if you have already received a provisional credit, you will be allowed to retain those amounts.

    If we decide that there was not an Unauthorized Transaction or Error, we will include an explanation of our decision in our email to you. If you received a provisional credit, we will remove it from your Account and notify you of the date and amount of the debit. You may request copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.

8.4 PayPal Errors. We will rectify any Error that we discover. If the Error results in your receipt of less than the correct amount to which you are entitled, PayPal will credit your Account for the difference. If the Error results in your receipt of more than the correct amount to which you are entitled, PayPal will debit the extra funds from your Account.

8.5 Your Errors. If you erroneously send a payment to the wrong party, or send a payment for the wrong amount (based on a typographical error, for example), your only recourse will be to contact the party to whom you sent the payment and ask them to refund the payment. PayPal will not reimburse you or reverse a payment that you have made in error.

11. Your Liability - Actions We May Take.

11.1 Your Liability.

  1. General. You are responsible for all Reversals, Chargebacks, Claims, fees, fines, penalties and other liability incurred by PayPal, a User, or a third party caused by or arising out of your breach of this Agreement, and/or your use of the PayPal Services. You agree to reimburse PayPal, a User, or a third party for any and all such liability.
  2. Liability for Claims under PayPal Buyer Protection. If you are a Seller and you lose a Claim filed directly with PayPal, you will be required to reimburse PayPal for your liability. Your liability will include the full purchase price of the item plus the original shipping cost (and in some cases you may not receive the item back), and the PayPal Fees that you were charged for the transaction. PayPal Seller Protection will cover your liability for eligible Claims based on Item not Received, and eligible Unauthorized Transactions - see Section 9 (Protection for eBay Sellers) above.

    If a buyer files a Significantly Not as Described (SNAD) Claim for an item he or she purchased from you, you will generally be required to accept the item back and refund the buyer the full purchase price plus original shipping costs. You will not receive a refund on your PayPal Fees. Further, if you lose a SNAD Claim because we, in our sole discretion, reasonably believe the item you sold is counterfeit, you will be required to provide a full refund to the buyer and you will not receive the item back (it will be destroyed). PayPal Seller Protection will not cover your liability for SNAD Claims.
  3. Liability for claims filed under eBay’s Buyer Protection resolution process. If you are an eBay Seller, eBay requires that you comply with the eBay Buyer Protection resolution process. As such, you have provided eBay with permission to make a final decision on a claim that a buyer files against you directly with eBay. If eBay makes a final decision that you lose a claim, you agree to allow PayPal to remove funds from your Account in order to reimburse eBay for your liability. eBay Buyer Protection claims filed directly with eBay are not covered by PayPal Seller Protection. Please see the eBay Buyer Protection Policy for more information. You will not receive a refund of your PayPal Fees. If your balance is not sufficient to reimburse eBay, PayPal will place a hold on your Account until the earlier of: (1) when sufficient funds are added to your balance to reimburse eBay for your liability at which time we will reimburse eBay in full, or (2) 37 Days from the date of eBay’s final decision on the claim, at which time we will remove your balance to partially reimburse eBay for your liability, and you will remain liable to eBay for the remainder of the amount.

11.2 Reimbursement for Your Liability. In the event that you are liable for any amounts owed to PayPal, PayPal may immediately remove such amounts from your balance. If you do not have a balance that is sufficient to cover your liability, your remaining balance (if any) will be removed, your Account will have negative balance up to the amount of your liability, and you will be required to immediately Add Funds to your Balance or reimburse PayPal through an alternative method. If you do not do so, PayPal may engage in collection efforts to recover such amounts from you.

11.3 Actions by PayPal – Restricted Activities. If PayPal, in its sole discretion, believes that you may have engaged in any Restricted Activities, we may take various actions to protect PayPal, its parent, subsidiaries and affiliates, eBay, other Users, other third parties or you from Reversals, Chargebacks, Claims, fees, fines, penalties and any other liability. The actions we may take include but are not limited to the following:

  1. We may close, suspend, or limit your access to your Account or the PayPal Services; 
  2. We may refuse to provide the PayPal Services to you now and in the future; and
  3. We may hold your funds for a period of time reasonably needed to protect against the risk of liability to PayPal or a third party, or if we believe that you may be engaging in potentially fraudulent or suspicious activity and/or transactions.
11.4 Actions by PayPal - Holds.
  1. Risk-Based Holds. PayPal, in its sole discretion, may place a hold on any or all of the payments you receive when PayPal believes there may be a high level of risk associated with you, your Account, or any or all of your transactions. PayPal’s determination may be based on different factors and PayPal may rely on information it receives from third parties such as eBay. If PayPal places a hold on a payment, the funds will appear in your “pending balance” and the payment status will indicate the hold, for example it can show as “Completed - Funds not yet available.” If PayPal places a hold on any or all of the payments you receive, PayPal will provide you with notice of our actions. PayPal will release the hold on any payment after 30 Days from the date the payment was received into your Account unless PayPal has a reason to continue to hold the payment such as (a) the receipt of a Dispute, Claim, Chargeback, or Reversal, (b) PayPal believes that you have violated the terms of this Agreement or any other Policy and that such a violation results in the need to continue holding the funds, or (c) PayPal believes that you may be engaging in potentially fraudulent or suspicious activity and/or transactions. In such an event, PayPal may continue holding the payment in your Account until the matter is resolved pursuant to this Agreement. PayPal, in its sole discretion, may release the hold earlier under certain circumstances, for example when you upload tracking information of the item you shipped.
  2. Disputed Transaction Holds. If a User files a Dispute, Claim, Chargeback or Reversal on a payment you received, PayPal may place a temporary hold on the funds in your Account to cover the amount of the liability. If you win the dispute or the transaction is eligible for PayPal Seller Protection, PayPal will lift the temporary hold. If you lose the dispute, PayPal will remove the funds from your Account. This process also applies to claims that a buyer files directly with eBay through the eBay resolution process.
11.5 Actions by PayPal - Reserves.

PayPal, in its sole discretion, may place a Reserve on funds held in your Premier or Business Account when PayPal believes there may be a high level of risk associated with your Account. If PayPal places a Reserve in your Account, transactions will be shown as "pending" in your PayPal balance, and you will not have access to funds in a “pending” status until they are cleared. If your Account is subject to a Reserve, PayPal will provide you with notice specifying the terms of the Reserve. The terms may require that a certain percentage of the amounts received into your Account are held for a certain period of time, or that a certain amount of money is held in Reserve, or anything else that PayPal determines is necessary to protect against the risk associated with your Account. PayPal may change the terms of the Reserve at any time by providing you with notice of the new terms.

11.6 Actions by PayPal - Account Closure, Termination of Service, Limited Account Access; Confidential Criteria. PayPal, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to terminate this Agreement and/or access to the PayPal Services for any reason and at any time upon notice and payment to you of any unrestricted funds held in your balance. If we limit access to your Account, including through a Reserve or hold, we will provide you with notice of our actions, and the opportunity to request restoration of access if, in our sole discretion, we deem it appropriate. Further, you acknowledge that PayPal’s decision to take certain actions, including limiting access to your Account, placing holds or imposing Reserves, may be based on confidential criteria that is essential to our management of risk, the security of Users’ Accounts and the PayPal system. You agree that PayPal is under no obligation to disclose the details of its risk management or its security procedures to you.

11.7 Acceptable Use Policy Violations. If you violate the Acceptable Use Policy then in addition to the above actions you will be liable to PayPal for the amount of PayPal’s damages for each violation of the Acceptable Use Policy. You agree that $2,500.00 USD (or equivalent) per transaction in violation of the Acceptable Use Policy is presently a reasonable minimum estimate of PayPal’s actual damages considering all currently existing circumstances, including the relationship of the sum to the range of harm to PayPal that reasonably could be anticipated because due to the nature of the violations of the Acceptable Use Policy, actual damages would be impractical or extremely difficult to calculate. PayPal may deduct such damages directly from any existing balance in the offending Account, or any other Account you control.

12.4 Improperly Filed Litigation. All claims you bring against PayPal must be resolved in accordance with Section 12 of this Agreement. All claims filed or brought contrary to Section 12 shall be considered improperly filed and a breach of this Agreement. Should you file a claim contrary to Section 12, PayPal may recover attorneys’ fees and costs (including in-house attorneys and paralegals) up to $1,000.00 USD, provided that PayPal has notified you in writing of the improperly filed claim, and you have failed to promptly withdraw the claim.

12.5 Notices to You. You agree that PayPal may provide you Communications about your Account and the PayPal Services electronically. PayPal reserves the right to close your Account if you withdraw your consent to receive electronic Communications.

13. General Terms.

13.1 Limitations of Liability.
IN NO EVENT SHALL WE, EBAY, OUR PARENT, SUBSIDIARIES AND AFFILAITES, OUR OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AGENTS, JOINT VENTURES, EMPLOYEES OR SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE FOR LOST PROFITS OR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH OUR WEBSITE, THE PAYPAL SERVICES, OR THIS AGREEMENT (HOWEVER ARISING, INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE). Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

13.2 Services Limitation. PayPal is not a bank and the PayPal Services are payment processing services rather than banking services. PayPal is not acting as a trustee, fiduciary or escrow with respect to your funds, but is acting only as an agent and custodian. PayPal does not have control of, nor liability for, the products or services that are paid for with the PayPal Services. We do not guarantee the identity of any User or ensure that a buyer or a Seller will complete a transaction.

13.3 No Warranty. THE PAYPAL SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND WITHOUT ANY REPRESENTATION OF WARRANTY, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY.

PayPal does not have any control over the products or services that are paid for with the PayPal Services and PayPal cannot ensure that a buyer or a Seller you are dealing with will actually complete the transaction or is authorized to do so. PayPal does not guarantee continuous, uninterrupted or secure access to any part of the PayPal Services, and operation of our site may be interfered with by numerous factors outside of our control. PayPal will make reasonable efforts to ensure that requests for electronic debits and credits involving bank accounts, credit cards, and check issuances are processed in a timely manner but PayPal makes no representations or warranties regarding the amount of time needed to complete processing because the PayPal Services are dependent upon many factors outside of our control, such as delays in the banking system or mail service. Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of implied warranties, so the foregoing disclaimers may not apply to you. This paragraph gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other legal rights that vary from country to country.

13.4 Indemnification. You agree to defend, indemnify and hold PayPal, its parent, subsidiaries and affiliates, eBay, and our officers, directors, agents, joint ventures, employees and suppliers harmless from any claim, demand (including attorneys’ fees), fine, or other liability incurred by any third party due to or arising out of your breach of this Agreement and/or your use of the PayPal Services.

PayPal does not own, control nor have any responsibility or liability for any third party software application you elect to use on the PayPal website and/or in connection with the PayPal Services. If you are using the PayPal Services on the PayPal website, or other website or platform hosted by PayPal, or a third party, and are not downloading PayPal's software or using third party software applications on the PayPal website, then this section does not apply to your use of the hosted PayPal Services.

Sections 6 (Closing Your Account), 11 (Your Liability – Actions We May Take), 12 (Disputes with PayPal), 13 (General Terms), 14 (Definitions), and Exhibit A (Fees) as well as any other terms which by their nature should survive, will survive the termination of this Agreement.
