  • pretty stupid

    By Ghost_the_gamer
    I like how money send and sh*t but to Claim the money or send money u have to enter a ssn or take a pic of a drivers license which is pretty stupid asf. I like how it was where u didn’t have to do all these ssn and driver license like if we are 18, it doesn’t mean we would have a ssn or driver license yet. So stupid 🤭

    Barely. OK if you need cash transferred fast. Fees pile up. International transactions end up VERY expensive. I use PayPal only as a last resort
  • Switching to Venmo

    By Tatonkane
    I’ve used PayPal for over 10 years but my recent experience with their customer service has left me seeking alternatives. I recently changed banking institutions, and altered my account preferences though PayPal accordingly, yet somehow they’ve managed to cost me hundreds of dollars in overdraft fees. When I spoke to their customer service, they shrugged me off and stated that what they saw on “their end” did not reflect the changes that I made several months prior (that were reflected through the app on my end) and that they would rather lose my business than work with me on the issue. I’m beginning to see why millions of people are taking their business to Venmo and will be making the switch myself.
  • I feel appreciated!

    By knanamoore
    Been with PayPal 15 years. No bs no ridiculous fees. Thanks for not being a pain in the rump and please don’t change!

    By Taccoooooooooooo
    I’ve always been iffy about using PayPal because of previous events with my friends, but I found out they were just being difficult. I use PayPal to transfer money when I’m on the road or working. It’s very convenient and adaptable. Thanks🤙🏽

  • Still the Best

    By Bro-Manuel
    I’ve been using PayPal for over 5 years, and have to admit that is still the best and easiest way to manage your funds. Many might complain of their charges, but simplicity has its value and I rather pay a small fee and easily get paid from web sales and been able to transfer them to my bank accounts, as well purchasing with confidence and security.
  • Fees

    By visi71
    I have 2 bank accounts associated with PayPal. One is charged fees and one is not. I would use PayPal more if there were no fees used.
  • Please fix this soon

    By inelde
    It will be easy for us to open PayPal app and see the view of balance on top. Ever since i update this new version, i cannot find where my balance is at
  • Crashes

    This app is constantly crashing, even with the latest update.
  • A class action lawsuit is needed

    By twsplace
    I am so sick of trying to get my $400 to my gf in the Philippines. She tries to long on with her email and she is blocked by PayPal I used their site called Xoom which is a million times better except I got locked out of using that and they won’t tell me what I did wrong I know of many people who have lost money with them and cannot talk to a human to resolve the problem Don’t waste your time and money I have talked to customer service and get no resolution I hate this service. Negative 5 is high praise
  • Funds on Hold for no reason

    By trimind
    Held $5K for 4 days for no reason. Kept me on hold for an hour. A stupid, backwards company that I will never deal with again. Use Venmo instead. It’s much better and no fees.
  • Fees

    These should be reduced... but gotta please the shareholders... which is greed

    This is gonna work great
  • App is terrible company is worse

    By naturallyelevatedsoul
    The app freezes when sending emails to have people verify services. They get mad PayPal holds their money and won’t make it available to recipient. Customer service is worse. They barely help just reinforce “guidelines “ Not American, 3rd country based customer service so PayPal can pay their workers little to nothing. Terrible company.
  • App still wont work for iphone 6

    App still wont load at all for iphone 6
  • Fraud!!!!!

    By Tonos10
    Used PayPal since 2011. Started receiving emails THROUGH PayPal from PayPal email stating I need to send someone more money for shipping. PayPal states that those emails are not from PayPal but IS being sent through PayPal. Someone is trying to get money from me and scam me through PayPals own service! What baffles me is in 3 separate places within PayPal it is validating I owe them money! The notifications section, messaging section and billing links for me to pay the scammer IN PayPals own internal emails messaging!!!! All coming from within the service. The emails stating this are FROM PayPal emails......not a 3rd party. PayPals interface is facilitating fraud to be committed by people by making it appear it is all coming from PayPal! My Etsy account doesn’t allow this, nor my EBay, nor Amazon, nor Walmart, ect. I can’t send an email to someone through Etsy for example stating they owe me shipping money with multiple interfaces and links within Etsy showing this and all the while committing fraud and and trying to defraud someone out of money! Etsy would NEVER allow this......yet PayPal does? This completely compromises the integrity and security of PayPal for me. How would any company allow such negligent practices to be facilitated by their own service and with knowledge of such activities? It seems criminal to me. Called twice today to speak to a manager. Was on hold over 40 minutes with no answer and 20 another which I was told a manager would call me back and case created. 6:19pm and still no call or email about case number. I will never use PayPal again to pay for anything and canceling my account. Too high risk with a minimalist approach towards security threats to its clients and full knowledge that the fraud is being committed within PayPals internal emails, interface and messaging. Shame on PayPal for such poor solutions to security! I hope you get sued on some multi million dollar class action lawsuit for negligent practices that facilitate defrauding people using your own service! UPDATE 06-06-19 PayPal STILL has this guys account up and his profile is asking users (plural) to send him 7 Euros for a package from Germany! Incredulous that PayPal would allow this account to still be active while he is proactively using an account in PayPal and their interface to try and scam people for money and them fully aware of it! This completely erodes trust and confidence as a PayPal user in their ability and desire to make sure their clients are not defrauded.

    Lo más seguro, confiable y rápido que he encontrado para hacer mis pagos. Además de que cobran lo justo! Me encanta!
  • 😃

    By K.Y.B.A
    A veces se desea cancelar un pago por pequeño que sea, por que la persona no pudo obtener el dinero de algún modo. Y no permite cancelar la transacción. Dice que se envió pero la persona no recibió nada.

  • Made me upgrade, stopped working

    By kaysten77
    Why do apps require an update then stop working. I actually need to send someone money and now I can’t from my phone. Sheesh. White screen of death is not useful, folks.

    By Tristan Berger
    I used PayPal for several years, moving significant amounts of money through it, without issue. My account has a long history of legitimate transactions, as do my other financial accounts. I’ve never been implicated in fraud, I’ve never even been overdue. So don’t think my story is just something that happens to other people. This can happen to anybody, at any time. I recently changed checking accounts. When I tried to remove my old account, the website said only “There was a problem.” I called into support, and they removed the account for me. I asked them specifically: I’ve heard many PayPal horror stories, are you completely certain that this won’t cause some system to lock my account? “Yes.” When I tried to add my new account, the website said only “There was a problem.” I called into support, and they added it for me. When I tried to withdraw my balance into my new account, the website said only “There was a problem.” I called into support, and they said my account had been automatically locked after the checking account switch. They said it would be lifted in 24 to 48 hours. After 24 hours the hold had not lifted, so I called into support to check up and was told the hold would take at least 48 more hours to lift. I was told I could withdraw cash at Walmart, for a fee, in the meantime. I went to Walmart and tried to withdraw cash. The app said only, “There was a problem.” After 48 hours the hold had not lifted, so I called into support and was told I didn’t yet agree to a terms of service update. After I walked the agent through my account information, he realized this was untrue and told me it was a verification issue. After I submitted additional verification to no benefit, he told me a supervisor would call me back in half an hour, and an internal ticket had been created to review my account’s issues. After 3 hours, I had gotten no call back, so I called support. I was put on hold for about 20 minutes, then spoke to a supervisor, who told me that it’s not a ToS issue, it’s not a verification issue, but there’s a temporary security hold on my account that will be lifted in 24 to 48 hours. That was a day ago, so I’m waiting on that timeout and the internal ticket. I’ll update this review if they go anywhere, but really, what do you think the chances are? Mistakes happen. However, when most mistakes are rare but mistakes that happen to let them walk away with your money are common, that’s intentional. When most issues are quickly resolved, but issues that let them keep your money have them stringing you along for a week, that’s intentional. Throughout the process I was told adamantly that customer service has no power to correct this issue. That this was the security system, not them, that they can’t control the security system. You may as well tell me it’s not you punching me, it’s your fist. When PayPal puts a wall between the people they’ll let you talk to and the people who can give your money back, effectively refusing to speak to you about the money they took from you, that’s intentional. DO NOT LET THIS COMPANY ANYWHERE NEAR YOUR MONEY.
  • Great

  • iPhone 6 loading issues

    By Daniella_lynn
    Continually issues with my iPhone6 loading the app. Very frustrating!
  • Do not recommend.

    By angrywithpaypal
    I’ve been trying to update an order account and the customer service was horrible. I was an hold almost an hour and then had a promise they would call me back. It never happened. Opened up a new account and could not get past setting up accounts. Another call to customer service and on hold at the moment. I’ve been on hold over 30 minutes and still waiting. If you send a message explaining your problems you get a automated response that doesn’t help. Very frustrating! I’m about to be over this! I’ve been trying to get these issues resolved so I can send money for 5 days! I clicked on one star but it needs a negative sign.
  • App update

    By liams76
    This new update that was just released not letting the app to load up at all.. i tried uninstalling it n reinstall it n it still not loading it . Please straighten this out.
  • Hate it

    By jusjojack
    I started using PayPal because I got a little side job and that’s what they used so I wasn’t tripping at all I’m like PayPal seems cool and all. But it started going bad when my friend sent me money but suddenly opened a case against me but he actually owed me the money so now I have a negative balance so I attempted to use the resolution center to get the case solved and so my balance would not be negative. It said it would take 30 days, so I’m like okay cool but pay pal added another 20 against me. I’m not going to pay that at all review the case faster or take the 20 away from me. I will never use this app again.
  • Too much taxes

  • Horrible!!!

    By Panlinda
    I was refunded my deposit from Airbnb in the amount of $3,784.33. This was put into my paypal balance. When I attempted to withdraw this amount I received error messages. I tried to transfer it to my checking account as well as to have a check mailed to me. I was told that there was a “problem”. They didn’t know what the “problem” was or how I could attempt to resolve the “problem”! I am still trying to figure out what to do or who to contact. I guess they want to keep my money!!! I am wringing my hands. Stay away from this horrible company

    By if4ckedurm0m
    PayPal banned my account that still had legally acquired money in it, and now they have that money and I don’t. They stole my money. I opened the app, and I found out that my account was banned. I cannot deposit or withdraw any of the money, and I can no longer receive payments. I cannot make a new account, because this account has my credit card linked, and I am unable to remove it. Extremely dissatisfied. They have not even provided a reason why I was banned either.
  • Still crashing on iPhone 6
