How to Change a PayPal Account

By Amanda Kondolojy

  • Overview

    Setting up and using a PayPal account is fairly easy, but at some point you may need to change some of your account information. Whether you need to add or remove a bank account, change your address or just set your preferences, changing your PayPal account is relatively easy and should take you only a few minutes.
    How to Change a PayPal Account
    • Step 1

      Log in to your PayPal account by entering your email address and password on the left side of the PayPal home page.
    • Step 2

      Go to the top of the page and click on the "Profile" tab. A submenu allows you to select what you want to change: your address, bank information, email address or phone number.


    • Step 3

      Highlight the information you want to change, then scroll down and click on the "Edit" button. Enter the new information in the window that appears.
    • Step 4

      Double-check the new information and click "Submit." Your changes will be reflected immediately, although if you are entering bank information, there may be a short verification period.
