PayPal Bill Pay Terms and Conditions

PayPal Bill Pay Terms and Conditions by using PayPal’s Bill Pay service (“Bill Pay”), you are confirming your acceptance of this legal agreement, which applies to you as a customer of the service. It is the unfortunate reality of some things that we don’t have to accept. The responsibilities of managing money can be avoided when one takes advantage of opportunities for spending responsibly. We don’t want you, our valued customer, to feel trapped into using this service when there are other alternatives available to facilitate your financial needs. Rest assured we will always endeavor to comply with all relevant legislation regarding account management and transaction processing about the safekeeping and depositing of funds belonging to customers like yourself.

If you sign up

If you sign up for Bill Pay, the Terms will always apply to your use of the service. We may change the terms of this agreement at any time by posting a revised version on our website. The revised version will be effective if we post it within 30 days after the changes are posted. If we don’t post a new version, then chances are that no changes were made since the last update. Let’s hope that hasn’t been too long there are a lot of things to keep track of these days. If our changes reduce your rights or increase your responsibilities, we’ll give you notice in advance.

Setting up account

When it comes to paying for things and/or settling up accounts with others, PayPal Bill Pay is certainly one way to go about it. The service currently allows you to pay one-time or recurring bills that you have with select companies via your PayPal accounts’ balance. You will be ready to initiate a payment request at any given moment you feel under the need to, after all, the service doesn’t require prior registration.

Once your request has gone through the necessary steps and checks by us, we’ll carry out the actual transaction immediately which is then sent directly over to your chosen Biller (given this option is also available that is). We’ve found that some of our clients like to use this service because they can avoid processing fees when using a credit card as well as make payments on time so they don’t get hit with late fees.

Cancel Payments

If you want to cancel payment to a Biller, there is good news all payments made can easily be canceled by simply logging into your account and clicking on the Biller Hub. You will notice that any payments in the Biller Hub as processed or already processed cannot be canceled. However, if you look closely enough, you will see that some cancel buttons appear next to certain payments. These buttons refer to payments for which it’s possible to cancel them (PayPal Bill Pay Terms and Conditions).

Don’t worry about your cancellation being faulty because canceling a payment transaction will automatically cancel all later scheduled payments with that same Biller too. That way, you’re assured that all of your scheduled payments are being managed accurately.

Limits

PayPal might change your transaction limits from time to time. They might also limit, suspend or block certain transfers to particular individuals, entities or recipients and/or suspend your access to their service for a time in its sole discretion. PayPal is not responsible for any losses incurred by you as a result of such changes. Following Section 6.4 of our services agreement, PayPal can amend the terms related to bill payments. The amendments may relate to transaction volume policy and processing limitations. We apologize for any inconvenience (PayPal Bill Pay Terms and Conditions).
