    NOTIFICATIONS NOT WORKING. Using the latest version of the app on a Xperia XA2 Ultra on Android 8.0. All the notifications are on including make a sound, but no notification or sound is made. I have un-installed and re-installed with no effect on the notifications working. Please fix this as its an important security function informing us of account activity, thank you. 👍 Full Review

    Trying to sign in, since it uses the old fashioned SMS method I have to wait for the verification code but I don't receive the message until I close the app and by that time it's too late. Waste of time, I'm trying to make purchases but can't sign in to see my activities and account details. Simplify the log in process while remaining secure and I'll rewrite my review. Full Review

    Ties up payment for way too long to be electronic banking. Not very convenient. Representatives have no knowledge of policies only repeat themselves. 4 calls to customer service in a week..only to find out that no matter what funds are tied up for 21 days even after bank clarified funds had been released the day of transaction...

    The app and customer support have really angered me. It wont accept any of my bank cards for instant transfer then when depositing a large lump sum to my bank account they tried to hold it for 1-5 days(although app only said up to 24 hours). Customer service cancelled the transfer acter i specifically askes her not to, so now im back at square 1 and still in need of my money a week ago. Full Review

    PayPal works great, only issue I'm having is not receiving Paypal Push Notifications.. Everything is set up correctly, I even called PayPal and talked to them about it and they said they don't know why its not working because everything looks to be setup right.. Would like to know when I'm receiving payments! Please fix! Full Review

    Horrible customer service. If you have a problem, make a new account. I've had good experiences with PayPal before but the minute there's a technical issue, there's nothing you can do in terms of contacting help. I just finished an essay while I was on hold. Full Review

    Terrible service. App works sometimes. When it does it is nice. Right now you cannot access your money. So I can add to my balance but not withdraw. I can buy something but not send money. If I cannot access my balance to transfer to my bank account then this is worse than worthless. Called customer service and twice I was immediately and purposefully hung up on. Terrible customer service. Full Review

    Bad app i dont recommend it. Unless you want to wait days and days to get the money deposited in your paypal account. I have sent myself 10$ monday ,the bank approved the next day. But when i check on the paypal app it says that the transaction is still pending. Its now friday and the money is not in the account. very frustating since my bank approved days ago. Been 5 days now c'mon and hurry up with the service. Full Review

    It takes 21 days to be available if your not in a business and 7 days DO NOT DOWNLOAD if Its personal (friends n family ) It takes $2.04 from your money and if u make a mistake and call them they won't help. my friend sent me money because I was stuck outside and he is a truck driver and he can't drive and send me money so because it never said when requesting someone to send money it's automatically as goods and services and they will not help u if it's your first time like me . They had to refund the money which will be there in 3 to 5 business days and they would have to do it all over again Full Review

    Fingerprint login worked ever since I installed the app like a year ago. A few days ago it stopped working giving me the error "Fingerprint not recognized." I disabled and renabled fingerprint id, successfully used my fingerprint to reenable the feature, and then tried logging in again. Still the same error. I don't understand why I am able to reenable fingerprint id using my fingerprint but the app fails to recognize my fingerprint during log in. Full Review

    Paypal is AWFUL don't waste your time, use the Facebook messenger money transfer option. It's fast, free, easy to use, and hassle free, everything PayPal is NOT. They haven't changed the name on my account after two separate inquiries, after deactivating that former account and creating a new one with the same email, my name FINALLY changed on my end, but not on anyone else's. They suspend your balance for weeks, charge extra if you want your money available today. Once they give me my money back in APRIL (It's March 13th) I'll be deleting my account. This app, and the company as a whole is pure garbage. Full Review

    Joined PayPal about a month ago I have not been able to send money once. Always get an error message that says transaction declined. Update didn't help the problem either honestly there was no change at all. At this point in time I don't even see why have the app because it doesn't work. I've tried going on the actual website as well and it doesn't work. I've tried to contact PayPal and have gotten no help. Full Review

    I'm a Canadian who has a USD PayPal, or I used to be able to send USD before with no issues. Now when I try to send the USD in my account, it converts it into CAD automatically and then tries to exchange it to USD. I had to come off of the app and go on the site in order to send the USD in my account. An app should make things easier, so I shouldn't have had to revert back to the website. Will not be using the app again, and if PayPal keeps this up, I won't be using their services again at all. I'm extremely disappointed. Full Review

    PayPal is one of the biggest rip offs. If you need to transfer money, costs are sky high. If you buying which you in doubt different currency, they will rip you off big time for exchange. If you receive the money, you have to wait for 21 days to receive. To withdraw the money, they charge you 2€. All that tells you that PayPal is rip off and that's how they are rich! Full Review

    I can't send money in this app for months so it negates its purpose... PayPal support just told me to uninstall & install again which isn't even addressing the main problem: devs aren't fixing this issue that's been around for months unless you have to do a fresh install... It fixed my issue but damn... Why do I have to pay thru web because this app sucks??? Full Review

    Can't login. Keeps telling me quick security check and upload a photo of a document but when I push the button nothing happens. Can't use other devices because PayPal doesn't consider it's me, because I've never login from that device. And also I've tried to contact the call center but I could login in (obviously ) to have the one time code. Very disappointed... Full Review

    This is the only app I've seen that requires 2 factor authentication every single time you log into the app. What's the point in setting up fingerprint authentication if I have to request a text with a code, wait for it to come in, and type it in every single time? I've used half a dozen banking apps, most of which have 2 factor authentication enabled, and none of them require a code every single time you open the app. It does not make the app any more secure. It's an app, I'm already using my phone. I've already put in my password. It already requires my fingerprint. Full Review

    Be careful with PayPal I sold merchandise on eBay and PayPal charge me $30 for using their service. Don't try to send the money you have with PayPal to the card on file because they will hold your money for 3 days !!your money they'll hold for 3 days ,and there's nothing you can do about it After being on hold for 30 to 40 minutes at a time to speak with the supervisor they have no answers. After the wait that I have to make I promise you I'm deleting PayPal and will never use them again. Full Review

    Automatically converting euros a friend is sending to dollars and charging me 6% and already charging him 4% . . . When I didn't want it converted to begin with, which will require a phone call as apparently there is no route to address this on the app. Also won't let me transfer into my online checking account as euros, which has no conversion fees without converting for me to dollars automatically. Thanks PayPal crooks. It's 2018, that's not acceptable anymore. Full Review

    Wow this is by far the worst finance app. My bank does a better job. So it takes ages to get the right amount, its not clear and now I end up in debt of £100+ to PayPal because they can't do their job properly. I add funds, doesn't show for almost 2 weeks... Then it shows, so I withdraw, now it says I owe PayPal MY money. And thanks to its clever system, I can't see in detail when where and why I'm under. Its a money scam when it allows you to pay even though there is no funds available. If you can't hurry up and deliver my money, don't be giving overdraft and charging me interest. I won't pay for your stupidity Full Review
