Paypal is one of the most popular international wallets around at the moment. The service allows users to send and receive money internationally without having to worry about exchange rates or SWIFT, transfers essentially making the whole process hassle-free.

That said, a lot of scams are also propagated through Paypal meaning there’s a lot of scrutiny around the service with ISPs in regions where Paypal isn’t as popular. In this article, we’re talking about the Paypal error 54113, its causes and what you can do to fix the problem.

What causes error 54113?

The error is mainly caused by your ISP blocking Paypal or Paypal blacklisting your current IP address. The exact cause behind it can be several different things, including previous reports of scams or your Paypal account being reported.

How to fix error 54113?

Here are four ways to fix error 54113.

Use a VPN

This is by far the simplest solution you can use as using a VPN will immediately give you a different IP address which won’t be blocked by Paypal, meaning you can access the service without any issues. The reason behind this can be misconfigured settings at your ISPs end so using a VPN provides an easy solution.

Clear your browser data

Corrupt files in your cache or otherwise can cause this error as well. Clear them out to see if you can get Chrome to work.

Step 1: Type in chrome://settings/clearBrowserData in your browser’s address bar and hit Enter.

Obtain a new IP address

This solution works on the same concept as a VPN, except you talk to your ISP to assign you a new IP address, permanently solving the issue and removing the need for a VPN connection every time you want to access Paypal. Provided your new IP address isn’t in Paypal’s blocklist and your ISP doesn’t restrict access to the service, this will resolve your issue rather quickly. 

Reach out to Paypal support

If nothing else works, you can reach out to Paypal through this link or on their social media handles to get them to solve the issue for you. If you believe you’ve been blocklisted by mistake, Paypal can look into the issue and remove any restrictions on your IP address, resolving the issue.
