asked on

needing help locating a direct online chat link or telephone number to a PayPal representative

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

           I am wondering how I might can directly speak with a representative of PayPal either via telephone or live online chat.  The number I have of 888-221-1161 is an automated service, however, I prefer to talk directly with someone due to the complex nature of my issue.  That said, if someone could help me out with this question, it will be greatly appreciated.

           Thank you.

            George

nickg5 is right. Just keep saying agent and you will be connected to a live agent on the original number that you indicated.
I've reached an agent. The phone number you have is right. I had an issue involving validation of my identity. They cleared up things within a few minutes of my getting to an agent.
Good to hear it. They are helpful once you get a real person on the line.

Thank you, everyone, for outlining the avenues for speaking directly with a customer service representative of PayPal.  My original number posted does work, just a little bit of a waiting game.  Thanks for the tip, Nick regarding saying "speak to an agent" at every prompt.  That did speed things up with regards to my need to speak with a customer service representative.

You're welcome, George, I hope you got the issue sorted out with them. Regards, Joe
Thanks George.

The only type issues I've had with Paypal is if the payment involves a transaction on Ebay. The buyer can get a "quick" refund through Paypal before there is a proper dialogue to solve the problem to prevent a refund.
= Make sure the buyer is happy with your item and it's description.
