Hi,

 

I saw so many posts with difference opinions, so it made me confused.

i have simple question.

I want to start my new company in Germany, with online shop, and I want to sell goods via paypal service.

If I open business bank account in Germany, can I integrate paypal service from my webshop with my bank account?

I want that my clients can buy goods, pay via paypal and that those paymants arrives on my business company bank account..

All that with german paypal and german bank account.

 

I am asking that, becouse now, in Croatia, where i have oher company, i can not receive paypal paymants on my bank acoount.

 

Thanks for help!

 

Regards!

Hi there PeteB0065,

 

PayPal is a country specific system therefore it is not possible to add a German bank account to your UK PayPal account.

 

When you move to another country, you need to close your old PayPal account and create a new account using your new address.

 

If you have addresses in both countries, you can keep your old PayPal account and create a new one, but only one of your accounts can be a Premier or Business account.

 

Hope this helps!

Hey Xmmm8,

 

Once you have closed your current PayPal account, you will be able to use your email address to register a new PayPal account within the UK. The only thing you can't do is have the same email address active on two different PayPal accounts at the same time.

 

David.

Hi,

 

I'm in a similar situation, I've moved to Germany and want to link my German bank account up to my PayPal account. My question is, if I close my UK PayPal account and open a German one, will I still be able to use it in all the ways I use my UK one? E.g. will it be accepted on UK websites such as moonpig or ebay.co.uk?

Dear Sir/Madame,

 

I have PayPal account which I created months ago, it gave me only option: United States - but I am living in Estonia.

How can I add my Estonian bank account?

I get money already to this account. How can I withdraw money? It gives me only option as to withdraw money to VISA card but I have MasterCard only and it is already added to PayPal, but I cannot use it as system is somehow rejecting all what I try to do.
