How do you find PayPal coupon codes?


Quick Answer

As PayPal is a payment platform and not a retailer, it does not offer any direct coupon codes for its service, though it does support the use of coupon and promotional codes for retailers using its standard payment platform. These codes may appear in different locations depending on the retailers, such as email newsletters or through sites such as Coupons.com, CouponCabin.com and RetailMeNot.com, as of 2015.

The PayPal service is a payments and money management platform that allows consumers and businesses to store money within a virtual account, and then use it to pay other users directly or for goods and services with a dedicated suite of payment processing options. Since the company only handles the processing of funds, and thus has no direct control over or impact on the prices or actions of its users, it does not directly offer or create coupon codes. However, its retail payment service does allow companies to create and accept their own coupon codes.

Since the management of the codes falls onto the retailer, and not PayPal itself, finding an appropriate coupon code requires users to search for deals from a particular retailer that accepts PayPal as a payment option. Many coupon and promotional code aggregate sites offer profiles for specific companies and include details about the nature of the deal, such as a percentage off the final sale price. Many sites also allow users to rate and comment on codes to report whether the deal is still active for the retailer.
