Contacting Paypal

Discussion in 'PayPal' started by Felu, May 21, 2007.

    Last night i got an email from Paypal that my account was limited and they want me to fax some documents. I guess this is normal and is done for security purposes. Before sending the fax i'd like to contact paypal. I've heard that Paypal's support doesn't respond to emails. What way would you suggest me to contact them? If via Phono, then do they have any support in India or do i have to make an international call?

    If they want you to fax some documents then you have to fax them that documents through their fax number +1-402-537-5755 (please verify this with their site)

    BTW you have to print their fax cover sheet also and you'll find their fax number on their cover sheet also.

    No it is not normal. i would make very very sure this is from paypal and call them up, as 99.99999 % of the time its phishing - i get about 3 emails a day like this from 'paypal'.

    Thanks for letting me know about the cover sheet. I didn't know that.

    Also, i'd like to know how can i contact paypal for fast replies(which is the main purpose of this thread).

    I'm very sure its from paypal as the limited status appears even when i log into paypal. Should i use skype for calling them up? Or do they have any support in India too?

    From my experience, it takes some 2 to 3 days to get an email reply from PayPal.

    So, to get a prompt and fast reply, it is better to CALL their customer support.

    You have to call them at their international support as no support currently available in india (indian number) IMO.

    i talked to paypal help service on this number: +1-402-935-2050
    i talked about setting up new account. a women talked to me. i asked here whether i can share the account of my relative living in canada. she said if the account is business then u can. then i again asked but i am in BD and he is in Canada and i also said i don't have prob withdrawing money to my relative;s account.she said well as long as the paypal account is busniess account u can share with other ppl.
    that's how long i talked. so now i can use my relatives paypal to get and send money. i also asked as i am loggin from Bd is that a prob. she said no? but whoever i asked in the past always said the opposite. does business account cost anything per month?

    No the business account doesn't cost you anything, but there are some fees charged on every transaction made. You can check out about the fees on paypal's site. Business account is basically a premier one with multi-user support.

    On the other note i got the limit lifted off my account and didn't even need to call paypal.

    Business accounts would be able to withdraw to Business Bank Account which costs around $1000-$2000 or so

    They hooked you... :eek:
