If you are a Paypal customer or user and want to get in touch with customer service, we can help. As you have probably discovered, it’s not easy getting a live person on the phone. There is a long list of questions you have to answer, and they require a verbal response, after which you are likely to be put on hold. In most cases, the auto attendant may not be able to understand your response. Below is a workaround on how to call Paypal customer support and speak to a human.

#1 1-888-221-1161

Phone Number: There are several numbers to call, but we suggest you call the 1-888-221-1161 toll free – That’s the best Paypal Customer Service Phone Number.

Support Hours: Monday – Friday (4:00 AM to 10:00 PM PST), Saturday and Sunday (6:00 AM to 8:00 PM PST).

Instructions: Your goal is to avoid answering any question the auto attendant is going to ask you, otherwise, you will be caught in a web of frustrations.

The first thing the attendant will do is try to authenticate the phone number you have on your paypal account (to look up your account information). Say “NO” to the first question, and say “I don’t have it” to the second question. After that, continue to say “Customer Service” until the attendant transfers you to a live person. That is the best way to get a live Paypal support person.

Did it Work?: Did our instructions work? If yes, GREAT! We hope they resolved your issue successfully. If no, tell us what happened. If you got to a live person using another method, please tell us how, so we can update our information.
