Palestinians living in the occupied West Bank and Gaza are unable to use PayPal services, while Israeli settlers living in the West Bank have full access to the platform.

A coalition of Palestinian businesses and civil society groups is calling on PayPal to end this discrimination against Palestinians. Click here to add your name to the #PayPal4Palestine petition!
Palestinians being denied access to PayPal means they cannot use their services to run a business, or raise money for a charity, or send cash to a relative, or make everyday purchases online. Getting access to PayPal can make a real difference in the lives of so many Palestinians as the struggle for freedom, justice, and equality continues.
