What is a Billing Agreement and how does it work?

A Billing Agreement allows a seller to charge your PayPal account when you purchase goods from them or use their service.

An example of this would be an agreement to pay eBay seller fees for listing items on eBay.

Billing Agreements are different from subscriptions. With subscriptions, a fixed amount is charged for a specified period, but with Billing Agreements, the amount and time period aren't fixed.  

To modify or cancel a Billing Agreement:

  1. Go to SettingsIcon Settings.
  2. Click Payments.
  3. Below 'Pre-approved payments', click Manage pre-approved payments.
  4. Search for and select the 'Merchant Name' for the Billing Agreement in question.
