We have tried pinging Paypal website using our server and the website returned the above results. If paypal.com is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access Paypal - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

I have been trying to get into my paypal account for the past two days. Their website will not come up at all. I have tried numerous devices, numerous browsers, and NADA! I cannot get access to my Paypal account because their site is GONE, GONE, GONE! I have never had this problem before and have had my Paypal account for ions. What the hell is going on???? I have NEVER had an issue with Paypal, so this is kinda freaking me out.
Sick of this crap, so OK, I just looked up the customer service number for Paypal and called them. They know there is a problem. Their technicians are working on the problem. They are sorry for the inconvenience. They do not know when the problem will be corrected. I asked the guy on the phone; "has Paypal been HACKED?"..........his answer; 'we are working on the problem'. I asked; 'do you have any idea when it will be fixed?'........his answer; 'we are working on the problem and we are sorry for the inconvenience'. So there ya have it folks! guess I will just keep trying to access MY MONEY. For anyone interested, this is the customer service number, 888-221-1161, not that it was very useful except for the acknowledgement that they are aware they have a huge ass problem

Made a monthly payment to PayPal at about 4 p.m. PDT Tuesday and have obviously been ripped off as (1)-the primised e-mail receipt never arrived and (2)-according to the website, which is indistinguishable from the "real" PayPal (including its possession of my bank account number), there is now (and presumably forever) no way to contact anyone to resolve this problem. Will be calling my bank first thing to stop the payment (if possible), but beyond that have absolutely no idea what to do (and almost certainly have no recourse given the unpoliced nature of the Internet).
