If you don't escalate a dispute to a claim within 20 days of opening it then it will auto-close.

It tells you that on the email you get when you open a dispute and on the dispute itself.

Hi @mohammed-aouad,


Thank you for posting to the PayPal community.

I completely understand trouble and apologies for the inconvenience caused.


In a dispute, you can exchange messages with the other party in your Resolution Center to try to solve the problem.


If you’re unable to settle the dispute, you can escalate it to a claim. To escalate a dispute, we often require that at least 7 days have passed since the payment date.


By escalating a dispute to a claim, you’re asking PayPal to investigate and decide the outcome. A dispute will automatically close after 20 days unless it’s been escalated. Closed disputes cannot be reopened or escalated to a claim.




Please contact our PayPal Customer service via link - https://www.paypal.com/smarthelp/contact-us (then choose at the bottom one of the contact methods - email or phone) for further assistance.


Hope this helps!
