Paypal Reversing Money For Personal Payments Sent To Or From India

PaypalPaypal can be called the eCurrency fueling the online commerce allowing payments and money transfers to be made through the Internet, powered by 73 million active users it operates in 190 markets allowing customers to send, receive, and hold funds in 19 currencies worldwide including India. However, for some unknown reasons Paypal has now blocked personal payments to be sent to or from India - add to that they are reversing transactions made during past two days sending back the money to senders automatically.

Paypal Reversing Payments

Users are being sent the following email leaving them with no option but to watch money fly-out from their accounts.


Your payment of XXXX has been sent back to the sender of the payment.

We reversed this payment because we have stopped allowing personal payments to be sent to or from India.

If this was a payment for a purchase of goods or services, and not a personal payment, then you may contact the buyer and have him or her resend the payment as follows: (a) click the Send Money tab, (b) select "Goods," and (c) provide a shipping address.

If this payment was a personal payment such as a gift, then we have requested that the sender find another payment method until we restore personal payments to and from India.

We are trying to resolve this issue as quickly as possible and we're sorry for any inconvenience.

Thank you,

Update : They are even making your Paypal balance negative, this is surely going to get ugly.

Paypal Negative Balance


how does i used this

Actually as far as I know it's the problem with VbV.As SBI and may be some other banks have withdrawn this facility from their cards.

Personal payments to and from India have been suspended while we address some questions from our business partners. You can still make commercial payments. We're trying to resolve the situation as quickly as possible and we're sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

My client sent me payment under services option still it was reversed and he cannot see reversed money in his account and my account is in negative, so we are at loss on both ends :(

Hi Anuj,

Instead of saying it "Personal payments to and from India have been suspended while we address some questions from our business partners."

Please let us know why it is not informed. Does it cost you all a big money mailing to your customer??

Even not the personal payment commercial payment also reversed. As there is no track wether that is done as service or personal. I don't want to debate on that. But you all should inform your customer before applying any rules.

Do you think you people become super power in the world.
Do you people think you are the only one who can do money transfer work.

Dear Anuj,
Could you tell me tht my account is not what can i do to receive payment in india i had earen from ptc. so let me know wht can i do to receive payment and get my account verified

This is actually weird. People are left with a helpless feeling. We dont know what to do. This is so frustrating and why has this happened to Indian subcontinent? We have been religiously using paypal and paypal cannot do this to their loyal customers. How long do you think the issue will take to resolve?
