PayPal Customer Service Phone Number, Assistance Login, Help Center

Updated August 2, 2023 – If you are a PayPal customer and need assistance with your account, here are the customer service phone number and PayPal Assistant login to reach a real live person or leave a message about your question or concern:

PayPal Customer Service Phone Number

  • The PayPal customer service phone number is 1-888-221-1161. Note that if you log in to your PayPal account you will get a one-time code that PayPal says will give you a faster response. (If calling from outside of the United States, the number is 1-402-935-2050.)

Online Account Access / Customer Service Help

  • Log in to your PayPal account here to access the PayPal Assistant automated service or leave a message for a PayPal customer service agent who will contact you at a later time (or hopefully a sooner time).

PayPal Help Center

  • PayPal obviously would rather you go this route and use their Help Center to find answers to frequently asked questions from other PayPal customers. We list it last here because we assume you’ve already tried this.
