Changes to PayPal Legal Agreements

PayPal is changing some of its Legal Agreements with effect from the effective date as listed below against each change (hereinafter referred to as “Effective Date” individually). We’ve created this policy update to help you understand the material changes. By continuing to use our services after the Effective Date, you are agreeing to the changes.

PayPal Local Payment Methods Agreement - Effective Date: 30 January 2019

As a reminder for merchants using PayPal to receive Commercial Transaction payments, on 11 December 2018 PayPal started to enable some customers without Accounts to send payments to merchants’ Accounts using alternative local payment methods.  For this purpose, Section 3.1 of the User Agreement for PayPal Services was amended to clarify how further terms of use apply to merchants when they integrate into their online checkout/platform any functionality intended to enable a customer without an Account to send a payment to the merchant’s Account.  This includes the PayPal Local Payment Methods Agreement. At the date of this notice, Section 3.1 applies (and will continue to apply) from the Effective Date.
