Important Notes:

  • PayPal's billing process runs in arrears and is 1 month behind. For this reason, you should expect an additional invoice after you submit the cancellation.
  • Cancellations may take up to 7 days to process. If we don’t receive the cancellation request within 5 business days before the close of a month, we may generate charges. These charges will appear in the next month's billing cycle. Please ensure that you submit the cancellation request before this timeframe to avoid additional charges.
  • Once we’ve terminated your account, you’ll no longer have access to the PayPal Manager or any account data. If you need access to this data after we’ve completed the cancellation, there will be an additional fee.

Partner / Resellers:
If you’re a Partner or Reseller and want to cancel your partnership with PayPal, contact your Channel Account Manager by email at payflowreseller@paypal.com.
