Why was my Paypal payment declined.

It's possible that your payment has been stopped by Paypal's internal security system.

To provide a safe online payment service Paypal's internal security system reviews every payment before it's approved. Occasionally, Paypal must stop a payment. This is similar to the way most banks and credit card companies work. When a payment is stopped, it's not a reflection of you or your account activities, but rather they have noticed a pattern associated with higher-than-normal risk.

Here are some things you can do to help improve the chances of successful payments on Paypal:

  • Confirm your bank
  • Confirm your card
  • Send the payment using money in your Paypal Balance, rather than using a bank or card.
  • Switch the payment method.  If you tried making the payment with your bank, try again with your card, or vice versa.
  • If this does not solve the problem contact your provider and ask them to send you a manual Paypal Invoice.
