Default PayPal do not answer the phone

Hi, how does anybody cope with PayPal not answering the phone?

Are there alternatives to PayPal where they are not so rude?

Wow, that's crazy. They have an automated phone answering system so they must really hate you if they ignored your call. I recommend trying a different contact number.

Maybe you are calling when they are not open for business?

Paypal does answer the phone, if anything the wait time is the problem where it can be upto over half an hour.

I waited half an hour and then gave up.

A company that does not answer its phone for half an hour presumably wants less customers.

Any alternatives to PayPal out there? Thanks

PayPal number one : 1 402-935-2050
PayPal number two : 1-800-986-4764

Try any one of them, you will get answer

I've never had them ignore me, nor have I waited half an hour.

Terry, it's up to you what you want to do, but if you really need to talk to them, so you know I remember I had to wait over an hour at times.

I know the timing is now better, but still 30-45min can be pretty common with paypal

Never more than 5 mins wait for me in uk...

Plenty of PayPal alternatives, but you need them if you intend to sell on eBay
