PayPal is a popular financial vehicle that allows patrons from around the globe to do personal and business transactions. This e-commerce vehicle allows patrons to easily send money to an email account that is also connected to PayPal. Furthermore, consumers can make transactions through PayPal with many modern payment systems. However, sometimes it is necessary to block PayPal debits. By following simple steps, anyone can stop a recurring bill, subscription or automatic bill by accessing his PayPal account.
Things You'll Need
- PayPal account email
- Merchant name
Enter you PayPal email and password to access your account. Wait for the page to load.
Click on the button that says "Profile" that is located at the top of your account page. Push the "My PreApproved Payments" button under the financial information heading when the page loads.
Select the merchant name that you would like to block from any further PayPal debits. Push the "View the Agreement" button for this business merchant.
Look at the billing name again to ensure that the merchant you have selected is the one you want to block from taking more PayPal debits. Select the button that says "Cancel" or select the button that says "Cancel Automatic Billing."
Follow any instruction thereafter. Click "Profile" at the top of the page if you need to cancel a nonrecurring bill. Push the "Pay List" button within the financial information area.
Locate the merchant agreement you need to block, if you cannot locate the previous step. Push the email address of the merchant or the merchant's name. Hit "Cancel."
Hit the PayPal "logout" button. Wait for the page to show that you have successfully logged out.
Tips & Warnings
- Contact the merchant directly by phone if you do not have an active PayPal account.
- Although you may have blocked PayPal debits, you are still required by law to pay for any merchandise or services you have received. Not paying for such items or services can have severe consequences.
