We currently have limited customer service staffing due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) safety precautions. We encourage you to find quick answers to your questions by searching the community forum, visiting our Help Center, or messaging us (message response times will be delayed). Thank you for your patience.
Speak to your bank and see if they can still recover the funds for you.
If not and the accounts are closed then they should bounce back to your paypal account balance, allow 14 working days and if no show then contact customer services for a trace.
Click on the words "Help / Contact" at the bottom of paypals pages and use the phone option in the blue band at the top OR very bottom of page dependent on what country you are in. Scroll down past the list of help questions and click on 'Call us' bottom of that page. Log in and get the code.
OR have you considered contacting Customer Service via Facebook or Twitter? You can send them a personal message from their facebook or twitter pages. It's: https://www.facebook.com/PayPalUK and @AskPayPal for Twitter.
Advice is voluntary. Kudos / Solution appreciated. I do not work for Paypal.
