As of June 6, 2016, our customers in Turkey can no longer send or receive funds with PayPal. Customers can still log in to their PayPal accounts and withdraw any balance on their accounts to a Turkish bank account.
Supporting our customers is very important to PayPal. However, PayPal was forced to suspend processing payments in Turkey when the local financial regulator denied our application for a Turkish payments license. We were also instructed to suspend our Turkish business operations.
Going forward, PayPal will decline all one-time or billing agreement checkout transactions from Turkish senders and receivers. These transactions will result in a generic decline code 98.
