    have yet to actually use it yet this time... acoupla years back, i signed on but used a different email n telephone #, which i cannot recall... wish somewhere, someone would write an all inclusive data base program that finds all the data entered on the internet, and put it all onto a single accessable to my eyes only page or file with unhackable security measures!

    If you just want to look at your PayPal account, then just go on the actual website, try to actual use the app to buy something from a store and suddenly takes forever to load. I was in line, got o it the app to pay on store, was in line for about 15 minutes and when I got to the front it still wasn't loaded. I checked my Internet and other apps that use internet, they worked fine. Get it together paypal. I believed in you. Full Review

    Honestly the best contact and support team out there. The first time I actually had to contact support, I was completely surprised. I mean they bring back the true meaning of good customer service. For once a support team that actually wants resolve any issues their customers might be experiencing. Certain limitations can be quite frustrating at the beginning. However security measures are in place for a reason. The longer you've been with them, the less restrictions you have. Just remain in good standing with PayPal, and they'll always have your back. Full Review

    I gave it 1 star solely for the reason that it took 1000 clicks to enter my birth date. This company and app like USA is living in primitive age. The registration process sucks. If you are from India use Paytm, much more user friendly and made for India Full Review

    How in this day and age when most financial transactions are instant a company still thinks it is acceptable to hold peoples money for the same amount of time as paypal does and still have the nerve to charge the fees they do is beyond me. Pending balances were acceptable when paper cheques were a thing. There is no excuse now. Have deleted the app. There are way better alternatives out there. Full Review

    Please add a payment/balance conversion feature to this app. I live in Australia so I'm forever checking the conversion rate to see what something will cost, and it's such a pain to log into the PayPal webpage every single time I do that. On that note, it's not exactly easy to find on the website either. Full Review

    Hated the app. Its my first time to use paypak since this is the only platform my employer uses. After they sent me my first salary, they have to hold my account for 14 business days because my selling something is progressing. That is not a valid reason to hold an account!!! This is just pure evil Full Review

    Paypal is pure evil. They had put my account in limited status for adding too many of my own credit cards. Is that a crime? It's been 8 years! They still won't remove the limitation or even let me close my account. Stay away from Paypal. Full Review

    I have used this app for a long time. It is the best app ever. Paypal is awesome as well. I have heard so many complaints lately, but I just have to say, I have not one complaint about paypal, or my paypal credit account. I have never ever had any issues with returns, payments, customer service, or the app. I love Paypal! Full Review

    Not happy at all. I was selling something buyer paid. I had to issue refund. I was away from home so no laptop and there was no way of issuing a refund. Buyer got grumpy. Even though going to be doing a refund you keep the transaction fee. Messaged your help line no response. Your app is rubbish! Full Review

    What is the point of having a preferred payment method if PayPal is just going to Bill whatever funding source they feel like billing? And the broken English combined with the excessive background noise and inability/ refusal of customer service agents to listen is enough to break the patience of a saint! Full Review

    Why does it take you guys 3-7 days to process money into an account? I have things to pay and your app is supposed to be a quicker and easier way to transfer money back and forth. I have things to pay I don't need you wasting my time waiting for processing. Full Review

    They don't tell you when you first transfer to your bank they hold your money for review for over 24hrs. If you need this money you're basically screwed. Get Venmo it's easier and there are no fees plus it's instant transfers Full Review

    I wanted to activate logging into app via fingerprint, which didn't work. So, I have contacted the support. First, the support tried to dismiss me with some ridiculous answer like "it is your software that software is wrong". only after distinctly repeating my question, I have received the official statement: "Logging into your PayPal account via fingerprint is only available for Samsung devices with android system and for iOS-based devices."

    PayPal credit payment on this app is horrendous I went to pay and it told me I had already made a payment in that month and I may be over paying. I then get told I haven't made a payment and they're charging me a late fee for the fact. Just be aware of this situation with the app. Better off using the website instead. PayPal are getting worse over the years I used to be able to trust them but over the last few months in situations I have encountered they just don't care about buyer protection any more.

    Nice when it works, but I can't log in anymore since I can't receive auth codes, after changing wireless providers. Whole problem would have been avoided if they let me use the security key I can use on the main website. Y'know, the one stored *on my phone*? Disappointing. Full Review

    Being able to pay for things are great. However offering services that aren't possible is bad IMO. Like paying a nominal fee to release funds to your bank account instantly, just to see that your funds are frozen for review is bullcrap. If your system has bugs or issues, don't offer the service until the issues have been worked out. Just saying.would have given 5 stars, had they not frozen my funds that are needed now. Full Review

    App is fine, PayPal is not. I have been robbed of $100 after a transaction was cancelled, and still haven't gotten my money back. Called PayPal and their answer was to tell me to wait. Well I've waited? Where is my money? DO NOT SUPPORT PAYPAL. Thieves! Full Review

    Love the app. There is a bug that doesn't always let you go to transfer money when an alert pops up. So I get the notification, tap on it, but then end up exiting the app and logging in again to be able to make the bank transfer. Full Review

    In the old days if we needed to send money overseas we had to pay a huge amount in conversion fees and for a signed or 'wired' bank cheque. Paypal (and moneybookers) have streamlined global transactions with low fees and instant payments. Yet ppl still find fault. I remember the old days before Paypal and there are still some countries that continue to use the old long tedious way. Paypal is a company, not a charity. Full Review

    Easy to take money out from you, good luck putting some in. The keys for you to input for your bank confirmation, does not work. Only way to get anything done is by calling them. Even then its comcast standards, long waits, and no care to help, just to "pass it on". There are apps where I can instantly send someone money just by phone number and this POS paypal app has "instant" week wait deposit... Delete this app please. How is it not embarrassing to have eBay funding this, and still a failure. Full Review
