Let’s firstly know in brief what is PayPal. PayPal is an online money transfer program which helps you to transfer money to anyone living across this globe.

PayPal is one of the most used money transfer applications because of how safe it is.

Another reason is due to the fact that it can be used by anyone throughout the world. It does not specify its used to any particular country. Many people ask ‘How can we block someone on PayPal?’, ‘Is it even possible?’ and ‘If it is even possible, then how?

Individual account

The least effort you can give is to ignore the payment messages or notes given by them. Also, there are few cases when people receive the payment notes from specif person continuously. In cases where you are receiving payment from the same user continuously then you should contact the PayPal support. They are very friendly and will respond to you as soon as they receive your problem.
