Paypal India Outage problem – Money not getting transferred to bank accounts

We were just alerted that PayPal India is experiencing some challenges and stopped allowing payments to be sent to or from India. Funds requested through PayPal India are being reversed to their senders, and users have no access to them. PayPal has yet to share with us an estimated time for resolution. Excerpts from a Paypal Email: —————————————————————————————————————————————


If you sent the payment with a bank account, the funds will be returned to your PayPal balance. If you paid with a credit card, the amount will be credited back to your card.

We returned the payment to you 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 resend the payment to the seller by following these steps on the PayPal website: (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 to a friend or family member, then we request that you 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,
