We recently reviewed your account, and we need more information about your business to allow us to provide uninterrupted service. Until we can collect this information, your access to sensitive account features will be limited. We would like to restore your access as soon as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Why is my account access limited?

Your account access has been limited for the following reason(s):

  • We have reason to believe that your account was accessed by a third party. Because protecting the security of your account is our primary concern, we have limited access to sensitive PayPal account features. We understand that this may be an inconvenience but please understand that this temporary limitation is for your protection.
  • Requiring PIN Signatures is the latest security measure against: identity theft, credit card fraud and unauthorized account access.
  • If you provide a wrong PIN your account will be suspended or limited for unauthorized account access.

    How can I restore my account access?

    Completing all of the checklist items will automatically restore your account access.
