How do disputes work with PayPal?

Disputes work differently with PayPal when compared to card payments. We explain the types of dispute, how to identify them and how to defend them in our PayPal guide.

For your integration, there are two new payment statuses as a result of PayPal disputes:

  • DISPUTE_FUNDS_HELD
  • DISPUTE_FUNDS_RELEASED

See the PayPal guide for more about these.
