Can I cancel a payment?
You can only cancel payments which have the 'Unclaimed' status. If the payment is completed, you won’t be able to cancel it yourself since your recipient has already received the money. You can reverse a completed payment by contacting your recipient and asking for a refund.
What is the 'PayPal Buyer Protection' checkbox for?
If you’re paying for goods or services, check the box to get eligible items covered by PayPal Buyer Protection. Leave the box unchecked if you’re sending money to your friends or family as those payments are not covered by this policy.
What are the fees for sending money?
Sending money is free for your transfers in euros in France and within the European Economic Area. There is a fee when you send a payment to someone in another country.
Purchasing goods or services using PayPal is free.
