Hi, I have a personal account with PayPal. I started to change it to a business account but changed my mind mid way through. Now I am stuck in the business questions and can’t access my personal account. How can I delete this business thing and revert to my old personal account? I live in Ireland and the phone number listed on the contact help page doesn’t work.
Welcome to our Community!
If you have started the process to upgrade the account, you will need to contact our Customer Support to downgrade the account. You can send a request through the secure Message Centre found in your Help section. In regards, to our number in Ireland, the current valid number is 1800 948510. I have just checked this number and it is working fine.
Welcome to our Community!
In such cases, you will need to contact our PayPal Here team directly, so they can advise you if it is a warranty issue and how to return the device or if it can be resolved with some live troubleshooting. You will find contact details here UK Support , Australia Support or US Support.
Thank you to everyone for participating in this week's chat session!
