Error Code: 539041 – The receiver PayPal account is based in a country which cannot receive payments

What does this mean?

This error is shown when the recipient account is not able to receive payments. Unfortunately, this means that a donor will not be able to contribute to the cause through our system. The recipient account is unable to process online payments due to being located in one of PayPal’s restricted regions.

Are you the campaign owner? 

This error message means that your PayPal account is registered in a country that cannot use our system. 

Currently, our system can be used in any country with the ability to send and receive payments through PayPal or Stripe. If you are unable to sign up for either service, we cannot help you with your cause.

We are truly sorry about that, but we do not yet have any payment alternatives for you to use at this time. We hope to expand our international payment options in the future!

Note: Although India appears on the list of countries on PayPal’s list of supported countries, Personal campaign users in India are unable to accept payments. If you’re having this issue, please contact PayPal directly for assistance. Sorry for any inconvenience.
