Maybe you’ve tried all the PayPal customer service options. Maybe you’ve even tried other ways to bring your PayPal complaint.
But some people say it’s hard to get a refund from PayPal. And while you might think you have the right to a class action lawsuit against PayPal, it’s actually more complicated.
A lot of companies like PayPal add what’s called an arbitration clause to their contracts. It gives them the right to force legal claims out of state or federal courts. But you still have rights to sue under your PayPal contract.
Here’s what you can do…Make a Legal Claim
The first way to sue PayPal is through consumer arbitration. If your contract has an arbitration clause it gives you the right take legal action against PayPal through an officially-designated, independent dispute process that’s not a court and won’t require showing up in person. This can be a better option for a lot of regular people.

The second way to sue PayPal, if you want to avoid the arbitration system, is to use Small Claims Court. While their contract may keep lawsuits out of state and federal courts, they can’t stop you from pursuing the small claims process. If you’re ready to sue PayPal on your own, read on below:
Do you have a strong enough case to sue PayPal in small claims court? Small claims courts are only for certain types of claims. This means you should understand the criteria you have to meet for filing a claim in a small claims court.
There are two criteria especially worth noting:
Suing PayPal in small claims court can take a considerable amount of time. However, you have completed the preliminary work by sending the company a demand letter and submitting the forms required by your state.
Now, the time has arrived to inform PayPal about the small claims filing. Legally referred to as “serving” PayPal, you must send the company the legal documents explaining everything associated with your small claims lawsuit.
Your state’s judicial website should provide instructions about how to serve formal small claims court papers. Most courts have developed strict rules concerning how to serve lawsuit documents. To avoid having your claim denied outright by a judge, make sure you follow every paperwork serving guidelines established by your state.
Showing up for your court date does not end your commitment to ensuring you receive justice from PayPal. You need to stay on touch with your legal representative by speaking on the phone and/or exchanging text and email messages.
Some small claims court cases end after just one hearing, while other cases last for weeks.
