Hi there i need some assistence on claming a paypal.me username...it says its taken but then it says its not and i get this error on my screen may i please recieve help ??? thanks,
Welcome to our Community Chat!
Unfortunately, we cannot provide account specific solutions here on this platform. Here is a link with some information about PayPal.me.
I would suggest you clear the cache and cookies on your browser before trying again. Please note a PayPal.me name cannot be changed and is unique to one account. If the name has been claimed already, I am afraid you will have to create a new one.
If you still have a problem creating a link please contact our Customer Support, to contact them please click Help & Contact at the bottom of any PayPal page for contact options, or reach out by Facebook or Twitter.
i cleared the cookies and browsing data tryed to add the paypal.me account wouldnt work even still it has the username below in the suggestions of other names i click on that and it allows me to have it n claim it and says its available and still says and give me the same error even though i havent even been able to claim it???
That is very strange! In this case, I would suggest you contact our support to see if this is a technical issue with your account. You could also try a different browser to see if this helps. There has been no major issue reported with the creation of PayPal.me links.
I am having a problem with my account that is literally ruining my life right now. On the 21 I I Received some funds in my account but due to a system error my balance stays at 0. I have contacted customer service severally via messenger to no avail, I keep getting the we are working on it typical response. I have even gotten the we are escalating your issue 3 times and still nothing. Please I have tried to call so I can speak to manager but i cant get through. This is literally a matter of life and death and no one seems willing to help me. I understand you must be using a certain criteria but it seems when you guys get to me my life will be in shambles. This money is my only livelihood and I have 0 recourse here. I am hoping you can get a manager to update the funds balance. That would be a life saver. Thanks
