Paypal seems to have stopped the domestic payments in India. PayPal Domestic payment means – buyers from India send payments to sellers from India. We do not have any reasoning for this yet. But this is major issues which is going to be faced by Indian Paypal users.
This was revealed on one of the forums, where PayPal Indian user was complaining about following error which he was encountering
“We’re sorry. We’re not able to complete personal payments to account holders in India at this time”
One of the paypal employees replied to the thread and gave following information:
This message is returned if buyers from India send payments to sellers from India (i.e domestic payments). You should be able to receive payments from buyers outside of India.
If you have specific examples where this message was returned to a buyer outside if India when trying to send a payment to you, please contact customer support with the details so that it can be further researched.

Here is the entire thread of the conversation.
Paypal seems to be screwing Indian PayPal users from time to time. This is probably the 3rd or the 4th time that users are facing the issue with Paypal payments.
What is worst is – There seems to have been no announcement intimating the Indian paypal users regarding the same. I can tell you for sure that couple of months back, this was very much possible, as I myself have done it.
We have got in touch with PayPal to know more on this. But if this is really the case, many users are going to get affected with it. We really need a good alternative for paypal in India…
Have you recently faced any issue of this kind ?
