Effective Date: October 1, 2019

  1. Change of name

The PayPal Local Payment Method Agreement is now called the PayPal Alternative Payment Methods Agreement.  A Local Payment Method (LPM) is now called an Alternative Payment Method (APM).  Corresponding changes have been made to other related terminology and to other agreements to reflect the new terminology.

We have added a note to section 4 as a reminder that, as already agreed in section 11.10 of the PayPal User Agreement, Seller Protection does not apply to APM payments.

  1. Annex 1 – APMs

We have amended Annex 1 as follows:

  • to confirm that it is now possible for a merchant to use PayPal to refund the payer of a MyBank payment; and
  • to introduce Przelewy24 (P24) as a new APM.

 

Updates to the User Agreement

Effective: 11 December 2019

We’re unveiling an entirely redesigned User Agreement for our customers. We’ve worked hard to make this new User Agreement a more user-friendly experience with content that makes it easier for you to understand your rights and obligations when it comes to using PayPal’s products and services.

Here’s what we’ve done:

  1. We’ve redesigned the User Agreement to simplify its format, with new colour-coded headings so you can find the information most relevant to your account more easily. We’ve revised and reorganised the content of the User Agreement to be easier to follow and to include information where you’d naturally look for it. We’re not changing the meaning of what we say, only how we say it and where you can find it.

B.  An updated User Agreement, will be available after 10 October 2019. Please click HERE to view once available.
