The online payments serviceÂ PayPal has taken the unusual step of suspending many transactions inÂ India for more than a week.
A spokesman for the service said Saturday that “personal payments” to and from India are being blocked. Transfers toÂ banks in India are being suspended as well.
The spokesman, Anuj Nayar, said PayPal is taking the step while itÂ answers questions that have arisen about the service. He declined to elaborate.
Nayar said the suspensions began Jan. 28. He wrote in a blog post that PayPal, which is owned byÂ eBay Inc., hopes “to resolve the situation as quickly as possible.”
