    Fed up with calling PayPal on their 5pence per minute 0844 number?

    Why not call them for free on and let them pay?

    PayPal 0800 3587929

    I just googled the number 28 results, seems they want to keep the 0800 on the low down.

    How did you get it?

    Massey - Use this site here: Clickerty Click ;)

    Even things like say: Comet - it often gives the local store instead of the head office call centre.

    Thats good.

    It really bugs me when you have to phone numbers that charge, they should all be 0800 they just like to rip people off.

    I found it on a web designers forum while looking for something else. Was a good find though. I have noticed that if you phone the 0800 number they answer it quicker than if you call the standard number they provide on the website - although I guest that because they are paying for the 0800 call !!!

    cjd and Zeal - thank you SO much! I've passed on the PP number to my artist group and will keep that mobile number in my phone. I'm on a super lean contract (Virgin £8.50/mo) but it still irks me that the main numbers I call are business/bank who use 0870 and then my minutes don't cover it. :mad: Stupid.

    the ebay free phone number 0800 358 3229 sometimes does go through to a mobile phone company - so just hang up and redial - they all get sent to an indian call centre anyway so i think at certain times it just "switches" - promise the number works - i never use any other! and if you keep pressing "0" when all the options come up it will take you straight to an operator so you don't have to spend another 30 minutes pressing various options!:p
