What crowdfunding campaigns does PayPal NOT support?

Lending and equity-based campaign models are currently not supported.   
  • Lending-based campaigns involve individuals contributing to a loan package where the campaign owner borrows from the package promising to pay back investors, usually with interest. 
  • Equity-based campaigns involve individuals receiving some sort of equity or security in the company for their contribution.  
PayPal does not support campaigns that would violate our Acceptable Use Policy or activities that violate any law, statute, ordinance, or regulations such as:
  • Currency exchange
  • Refinancing debts
  • Lotteries and gambling
  • Get rich quick schemes
