    Hello there @anandnikam, I hope you're well today!

    I've never heard of that before... and though it is weird, I'm afraid that there's no solution to that... That's just PayPal policy!
    The only thing that I can think of is that you change your address in PayPal for a couple of hours to another country and see if you can send it then.
    At least you'll be able to get your payment!
    Another solution would be to use another payment gateway and not PayPal.

    I know they are both "ugly" solutions and they don't actually solve your problem, but there's really nothing we can do to affect PayPal policies on that!

    Cheers,
    Ari.
