Amendments to the PayPal User Agreement

Effective: March 11, 2021

  • We are revising the listed exclusions to PayPal’s Buyer Protection and Seller Protection to be globally consistent and to clarify which transactions are eligible for protection.
  • We are revising PayPal’s Seller Protection so it does not apply where a merchant ships a physical item or fulfills a purchase order more than two days after being notified by PayPal that the transaction is being disputed, reversed, or is otherwise unauthorized.
  • We are clarifying our PayPal Payouts and Mass Pay services terms, including that they may only be used to make multiple or bulk payments, not individual or other ineligible payments, and that merchants are responsible for obtaining the applicable consents from their payout recipients.
  • We are clarifying the terms that govern communications between you and PayPal.
  • We are clarifying PayPal’s data protection roles and responsibilities in connection with the processing of personal data using the PayPal services.

 

Amendments to the Advanced Credit and Debit Card Payments and Virtual Terminal Agreement, and the PayPal Website Payments Pro and Virtual Terminal Agreement

Effective: March 11, 2021

  • These two agreements are being consolidated and renamed as the PayPal Online Card Payment Services Agreement. The unconsolidated versions of these two agreements will be removed from the Canada Legal Hub after the effective date listed above. Such changes will not reduce your rights or increase your responsibilities.
