Contacting Paypal Customer Service Center
Paypal is the leading payment processor in the United States. With the huge influx of virtual and online shopping customers need a means of moving money from one place to another at the speed of light with the security of a bank vault and that’s where Paypal fits in. Paypal first became popular as a part of the eBay family. eBay sellers were given the option to accept Paypal payments, print mailing labels from Paypal and even order Paypal Mastercard (debit card) to access the money in the account. Suddenly anyone could be a business owner or carry a fully funded Mastercard without the terrible bank fees associated with traditional bank accounts.
Paypal is supported by a strong customer service team that is responsible for dealing with customer issues and maintaining a barrier between people who want to take an account holder’s money and the account holder. Paypal charges fees for use, so they have a monetary interest in keeping every customer.
Phone Contact Numbers
If you are not a customer you can contact Paypal on the generic customer service line. Once you’ve established an account, you will be given access to another list of phone numbers.

Customer Service Email
Emailing Paypal customer service is generally the same as other means of communication. If you are an account holder you have access to different email addresses and submission forms depending on the type of account you hold. General customer service emails for new or potential customers can be sent using the online contact form https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/webscr?dispatch=5885d80a13c0db1f8e263663d3faee8da6a0e86558d6153d7722c6eea13ecd7b. This form should NEVER be used to send personal information even though it is a secure form. Wait for the Paypal customer service representative to contact you before sharing any personal or financial information.
We called the general customer service line for Paypal in hopes of learning how you can move through the automated system more quickly. You cannot press 0 to bypass the automated system. We pushed through and answered the automated agent’s questions by telling her we were NOT Paypal members and we were calling with a general question about Paypal. Before we were transferred to customer service, the recording told us we would be asked our Paypal account number, last four digits of the bank account or credit card used to back the Paypal account and more. If we are not an account holder how can we provide this information? The agent who answered the call had a strong accent and we were unable to complete the call due to a severe language barrier.
