PayPal changes to user agreement

PayPal announced important changes to its terms and conditions for U.S. users, including the discontinuation of the Digital Goods Micropayments Purchase Agreement. All changes are effective June 9, 2021

Amendments to the PayPal User Agreement

  • PayPal is further revising PayPal’s Purchase Protection and Seller Protection to be globally consistent and to further clarify which transactions are eligible for protection.
  • PayPal is clarifying how sending or receiving donations are treated.
  • PayPal is clarifying that you are subject to any changes that are described on the Policy Updates page at the time you accept the user agreement (which changes apply to you on the indicated effective dates).
  • Pursuant to prior notification to Goals users, Goals will no longer be available. All agreement references to Goals are being removed from the PayPal User Agreement effective June 9, 2021.
  • The Digital Goods Micropayments Purchases Agreement is being discontinued and will no longer be available; therefore, all references are being removed from the PayPal User Agreement.

Amendments to the PayPal Cash and PayPal Cash Plus Terms and Conditions

  • PayPal is clarifying that users are subject to any changes that are described on the Policy Updates page at the time users accept the PayPal Cash and PayPal Cash Plus Terms and Conditions (which changes apply to users on the indicated effective dates).
  • Pursuant to prior notification to Goals users, Goals will no longer be available. All agreement references to Goals are being removed from the PayPal Cash and PayPal Cash Plus Terms and Conditions effective June 9, 2021.

Discontinuation of the Digital Goods Micropayments Purchases Agreement

  • The Digital Goods Micropayments Purchases Agreement is being discontinued and will no longer be available and is therefore being removed from the U.S. Legal Hub.

As always, there are no actions required for users as all terms if you want to continue to use PayPal. Users who do not wish to agree to the new terms will need to close their PayPal account before June 9, 2021.
