How to Contact PayPal?

Contact PayPal Customer Service Via Phone

The PayPal phone number is 1-888-221-1161 for account holders and guests in the US, 020-8080-6500 for the UK customers (may be charged at a national call rate), 0800-365-9448 for landline calls, and 1-402-935-2050 for guests and account holders outside the US.

The process for making a call as an account holder is different from the process of making a call as a guest. To make a call as a guest, you only need to dial the appropriate phone number depending on your location.

Here is the process for making a call as an account holder:
- Log in to your PayPal account.
- Go to the help center, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on “Сontact us”.
- You will be led to a new customer service help page, scroll to the bottom, and click on the “Сall us” option.
- PayPal will provide you with a one-time pass code and dial the phone number provided - you will be required to provide it during the call.

PayPal states categorically that they will only discuss account details with the account holder. The code is part of the verification process to ascertain that you are the account holder and it expires after an hour.

The PayPal customer support is available via phone from Monday to Sunday between 6 AM and 6 PM PT.

After you dial the phone number, the company’s voicemail system will provide you with the following step-by-step instructions:

Thank you for calling PayPal. Calls maybe recorded or monitored for quality or security purposes.

We are currently experiencing extended call wait times and as a result CS rep may not be available.

For faster support go to Paypal help center and send us a message.

You should click "Help" on any page at

For Account information please remain on the line.

It looks like you have 6-digit one time pass code. Please enter or say it now.

Alternatively, if you need more time to find it, say, "One moment."

In couple of words, please tell me what you are calling about.

You can say things such as, "How do I refund someone?" or, "I have not received my payment."

These are just examples, so please tell me why you are calling.

Contact PayPal Customer Service Via the Help Center

PayPal has a comprehensive help center where you can find answers for most common customer issues. The help center has three categories: personal help (for personal account related issues), business help (for business account issues), and technical help.

If you can’t find an answer on the FAQs, there are 3 more ways to get assistance:
- Report a problem at the resolution center (for transaction-related issues).
- Message - since there is no direct PayPal email address to write to, the PayPal message center option is the best channel for chatting with a customer care representative. Click on “New Message” and provide details of your issue on the text box then click on the ^ button.
- Community forum where you can find answers by looking at responses to other customer’s similar questions either by PayPal customer support representatives or fellow customers.

Contact PayPal Customer Support Via Social Media

The PayPal customer support is most active on Twitter (@Paypal Support). Here you can either tweet your question or send a direct message. Sending a direct message is the best option for questions that are specific to your account and include personal information.

There are two PayPal addresses. A corporate headquarter address is 2211 North First StreetSan Jose, California 95131 and a World operations address is 12312 Port Grace BoulevardLa Vista, Nebraska 68128.
