Account got blocked

I made a direct deposit into my PayPal plus account and ever since then, I couldn't send or receive money again. All I am seeing anytime I login is that I cannot use PayPal again that I need to wait 180days before they can send me back my money. Anybody pls help me on what to do.

Re: Account got blocked


If you have been told your Paypal account has been permanently limited then Paypal holds any funds for 180 days as that is the same time frame that buyers have to open paypal disputes.

If no disputes are opened against you in 180 days then 'normally' you are allowed to withdraw the funds as long as you are over 18, the account is in your legal name and registered in the country where you reside.

Sometimes they confiscate funds under this policy.

Paypal also may request further documentation from you before you can withdraw those funds.

Your best bet is to wait until the phones are back up and running and then phone customer services so that you can speak to an agent.
Then they can help advise on how you can withdraw the funds if and when you are allowed to do so.
