Why We’re Here
So you have complaint against PayPal. A major issue. And PayPal customer service hasn’t solved your complaint.
Maybe you want compensation for overcharges, fraudulent sales tactics, collections issues, or impact to your credit. Maybe you just want PayPal to admit they’re in the wrong and give you fair treatment. Either way, you’re looking to take action on your PayPal complaint.
So, the question is: how can you make PayPal hear your complaint? Can you sue PayPal? What sort of compensation do customers get from PayPal their complaints?
The first thing to know, is that your PayPal contract probably limits your options for legal complaints against PayPal. You generally have two options:
Take your PayPal complaint to Small Claims Court, or
Take your PayPal complaint to Consumer Arbitration
We at Radvocate can help you file a claim against companies like PayPal. We’ll take your complaint through the legal process of consumer arbitration. This usually gets them to negotiate. (For a list of companies we process complaints against, start here.)
