How to Block Someone on PayPal

PayPal has a block option that allows you to prevent customers or persons from making payments to your account.

This block action can be made if you've disputed with the person and no longer want to do business with them. Or you may have received unsolicited or spam payment requests from someone you don't know.

While blocking someone on PayPal is as simple as ABC, only some users can achieve that successfully.

In this article, I’ll show you how to block someone on PayPal successfully.

How do I block someone on PayPal?

Whether you’re using the mobile app or the web version, they’re always a place for you to block someone.
