Hello @NR1992 and @ Temp20230912y


Welcome to the PayPal Help Community and thanks for posting here!


Sorry to know that your recent payment was declined due to regulations. PayPal security system reviews every transaction before its approved. Each time you initiate a transaction, it goes through series of filters for possible risk and may not be able to process the transaction due to the possible risk associated with it. You can try to complete the payment using a different payment method. 


Hope this information helps,
