How do I use the Help Center site?

The PayPal Technical Support site is designed to help you find solutions to common questions related to integrating or troubleshooting PayPal products. With this website you can:
  • Search for information.
  • Submit questions to support staff.
  • Track the status of your submitted questions.

Note: Our Merchant Technical Support (MTS) teams are ready to assist merchants and partners with integrations and other technical issues. For general account inquiries and basic customer issues, visit the PayPal Help Center.

Find information

Here's how:

  • From the Help Center home page, enter your question or search term, and click Search. All FAQs that match your search criteria are displayed.
  • To narrow your search, you can click one of the help topic categories listed on the right side of the page. When you do this, the page displays links to the sub-topics found in that category. Click on a sub-topic, and the page displays links to the names of all FAQs associated with that sub-topic. For example, to see information about the payment types available when you send money, you'd click the My Money help topic, then the Sending money sub-topic, and finally the link to What are the payment types when I send money?
  • If the information you seek is a common search topic among PayPal's customers, you may be able to find additional answers in PayPal's Community Help Forum.
