PayPal accounts are useful for individuals and businesses as they allow free transfer of money from one bank account to another, as well as convenient and secure credit and debit card payments. If you are unable to confirm your account details, such as your location or linked bank account, or if your PayPal account remains inactive for an extended period of time, you may need to reactivate PayPal.
Log in to your PayPal account if possible and click on the link to the Resolution Center at the top of the page. In the Resolution Center, you will see another link to find out why access to your account is restricted if certain features, such as sending and receiving payments, are restricted by PayPal for any reason.
Follow the Resolution Center steps to remove PayPal’s limitations and reactivate full access to PayPal features and services.
Click the Resolution Center link to dispute a transaction if you need to report an unauthorized transaction. PayPal stops unauthorized transactions and you may not be able to process other payments while an unauthorized transaction appears on your account.
If you are unable to access your PayPal account, or if you have any further questions or concerns about accessing your account after using the Resolution Center, please contact the PayPal Help Center by clicking the contact link on the PayPal homepage.
Reactivate blocked PayPal accounts by calling the PayPal Customer Service line at (402) 935-2050, open from 4am to 10am Pacific time on weekdays and from 6am to 8am on weekends.
Have as much information about your PayPal account as possible when you call the customer service line, especially your phone number, credit card or bank account numbers, and your email address registered to your PayPal account.
