Notice of amendment to the PayPal User Agreement.

Effective Date: August 19, 2019

You can find the PayPal User Agreement currently in force by clicking here or accessing it via the “Legal” or“Legal Agreements”footer on most PayPal site pages.

1. Refused Transactions and Refunds

We are amending sections 4.6 (Refused Transactions), 5.7 (Your Refund Policy, Data Protection, Privacy Policy and Security) and A3.1.2 in Schedule 1 (Table of Fees) to clarify what happens when a payment is refused or later refunded by the recipient (including where the original payment involved a currency conversion and where a currency conversion (and, in some cases, a currency conversion fee) applies to the returned amount).

Section 4.6 is amended accordingly for payers receiving returned payments and is also renamed “Refused Transactions and Refunds sent by the recipient.”.

Section 5.7 is amended accordingly for recipients sending refunds or refusing payments and is also renamed “Refunds, Refused Payments, Your Refund Policy, Data Protection, Privacy Policy and Security” with a new section 5.7.1 (Refunds and Refused Payments) added for the purpose of this clarification.

Section A3.1.2 in Schedule 1 (Table of Fees) is amended accordingly.

Sections 4.6 and 5.7.1 now read as follows (presented in context with their root clauses and with added wording underlined):

“…

4.6 Refused Transactions and Refunds sent by the recipient.

We may allow the recipient of your payment to:

  • refuse to accept it; or
  • decide to accept it and then use our Service to send you a refund of all or any part of the amount of the payment later.

We will return the amount of any refused payment or refunded payment to your Balance. We will return the amount of an unclaimed payment to your Balance within 30 Days after the date you initiated the payment.

If any amount of any payment is returned to you in any of the ways outlined above, we may convert the returned amount for you into either:

  • the currency of the Balance you used for the original payment (before any conversion into the currency received by the recipient happened);
  • the original opening currency of your Account; or
  • US dollars (opening a Balance in that currency for you, if you don’t have one already).

If the original payment you sent involved a currency conversion we will convert the returned amount from the currency received by the recipient as follows:

  • if the amount is returned within 1 day of the date of the original payment, we will use the transaction exchange rate applicable on the date of the original payment, so that you receive the original amount (including the currency conversion fee you paid) in the original currency you converted from for the original payment; and
  • if the amount is returned after 1 day of the date of the original payment, we will use the transaction exchange rate applicable at the time of the conversion of the returned amount. See section 8.2 for more information about how we, set the transaction exchange rate. Note that, for the purpose of this particular return conversion the transaction exchange rate includes the Currency Conversion Fee.

You agree to bear the currency conversion fee set out at section A3.1.2 in this case. We may also automatically withdraw the returned amount from your Balance and transfer the funds back to the funding source you used for the original payment. Withdrawals can also involve a currency conversion – see section 6.

We may decide to not charge your original Funding Source for the original payment in the first place if the the amount is returned to your Balance as outlined above before the payment from your original Funding Source to PayPal to fund your original payment has settled.

The returned amount could be lower in value than your original payment amount. This can happen as a result of:

  • the recipient sending you a refund lower in value than your original payment amount. As we are only a payment service provider, we cannot know what you are entitled to from the original payment recipient as a refund or why the recipient sent the refund in a particular amount; or
  • transaction exchange rate fluctuations.

PayPal is not responsible for any loss resulting from the recipient's decision to refuse or refund your payment, except to the extent that a refund sent by the recipient is a payment executed incorrectly by PayPal (see section 12).

5.7 Refunds, Refused Payments, Your Refund Policy, Data Protection, Privacy Policy and Security.

5.7.1 Refunds and Refused Payments

If you are the recipient of a payment and we allow you to refuse a payment or send a refund of that payment to the payer:

  • you alone are (and PayPal is not) responsible for:
    • your legal and contractual obligations towards the payer for any amount you return to the payer; and
    • any difference between the cost to the payer of making the original payment and the value of the amount returned to the payer (for instance, as a result of transaction exchange rate fluctuations) except to the extent that the refund is a payment executed incorrectly by PayPal (see section 12); and
    • we will retain all the fees you paid to us as the recipient of the original payment (see also section A3.4 Commercial Transaction Refunds in Schedule 1);
