Paypal Bill

What to Do When You Can’t Pay Your Paypal Bill

Paypal is a payment processor popular with eBay sellers and other online businesses. Paypal fuses with a bank account for balance transfer, but customers also have the option of ordering a Paypal Mastercard for faster access to money online. The debit card can pull backup funding from the bank account or credit card attached to the Paypal account, so customers must know how much money they currently have in their Paypal account to prevent overdraft or over limit fees from connected accounts.

Paypal used to offer bill pay, but the service was discontinued in 2003. Today, customers can pay bills with their Paypal debit card and account or utilize the Bill Me Later option for some purchases.

How to Pay the Bill

Fees associated with your Paypal account are pulled directly from payments, so customers never have bills or fees to pay directly to Paypal. However, if bill payments are pulled directly from a Paypal account, the customer could be charged late payment fees or returned payment fees if the money is not available on the due date.

Pay online: You can pay your Paypal bill online at Simply log into your Paypal account and add money or withdraw money.

Pay with credit / debit card: You can pay most bills with your Paypal Mastercard. Simply pay online with your biller and enter the Mastercard number printed on the front of your Paypal card. If your biller accepted Paypal payments, you can enter your log in information for Paypal to complete payment.

  1. I’m just trying ot pay my personal account and it keeps going to a place to set me up to take payments. I’m trying to set up a website right now that will take pay pal, but that’s not what I’m trying to do right now. This is really frustrating. Do I have to stop paypal on the website I’m constructing before I can pay my bill?

  2. I’ve just used my paypal credit for the first time. Nowhere on your site does it explain the billing process and how to pay the bill. I’m paying 6 installments and I usually pay most of my bills via check-by-phone. Will I be able to do this with my paypal bills? Can I receive a statement in the mail or must it be in my email? How do I know when the billing date is? Can someone please reply and answer these questions?

  3. Why in the world can’t Paypal just put an icon on their site that says “Pay my Statement”. It’s impossible to log into the Paypal site and figure out how to pay them. Nothing makes sense on that site, and it could be made so simple with just a “Pay My Statement” icon. It’s frustrating.

  4. I agree with everyone else.Please make it easier to pay bill.Right now i don’t know if my April payment went through.

  5. I to am having problems paying my bill on line. I had to send in my payment last week for this month early to make sure they get it on time because I didn’t know if it cost to pay by phone. I use to get on with no problem but it keeps sending me to something else and I must have spent a good 20 to 30 minutes trying finally I got mad . You guys need to set it up different for payment wise instead it sends you to money site over and over. Please do something.

  6. I am trying to find out what my payment schedule is. When did it go up and when is it due…..You did not send me a bill. Now it says I am past due. Help

  7. I have made payment via pay pal with my credit card for purchase of good from but as to date I have not received my order. I am unable to trace my the said seller. Can pay pal trace my order ?

  8. Stop telling customers they can pay PayPal Credit from their PayPal account page. THERE IS SIMPLY NO PAYPAL CREDIT OPTION ON PAYPAL. WHY ARE YOU MAKING IT SO DIFFICULT TO PAY PAYPAL CREDIT ONLINE?
