PayPal is making some changes to its User Agreement that will be effective for all PayPal users on July 27, 2017. One item that may be of concern to users:
"We're updating the "Payment Methods Used" section to clarify that, for pre-approved payments, if you have money in your PayPal balance, your PayPal balance will be used first and your preferred payment method will be used for any remaining amount due."
We asked PayPal, "If I pay for an item on eBay or a retail website, will PayPal now automatically use my PayPal balance first? What is (and is not) a pre-approved payment?"
