Payment Receiving Preferences

If you have a Premier or Business account, Payment Receiving Preferences can handle payments automatically. You can convert any payment into your primary currency or block certain types of payments.

You can:

  • Block payments from U.S. customers who don't have a confirmed address.
  • Block payments sent to you in a currency you don't hold.
  • Block payments for duplicate invoice IDs.
  • Block payments from customers who have non-U.S. PayPal accounts.

To set your Payment Receiving Preferences:

  1. Click Settings.
  2. Click Payment preferences under "Account & Security" on the left of the page.
  3. Click Update in the "Block payments" section.
  4. Update your settings and click Save.
