Changing My PayPal Account Location 🌍


Hey PayPal Community,

Hope you're all doing good. I've got a question and I'm hoping someone here can lend a hand.

You see, I originally set up my PayPal account back when I was in Georgia. But things change, right? I've recently moved to a different country, and now I'm wondering how I can switch my account's location to match my new home.

The reason behind this is simple: I want to avoid any extra fees for money stuff in my new location. Who doesn't like saving some extra cash, right?

So, if anyone has any tips or knows the steps to change my PayPal account location, I'd be super grateful. It'll help me keep my account updated and wallet-friendly.

If you need more info from my side, just give me a shout.

Thanks a million for your time and help. Can't wait to hear from you awesome folks.

Paypal is country specific so if you move countries you have to open another paypal account in the country you reside in and add an address / phone number / bank accounts / cards from within that country.

You should really withdraw any funds / resolve issues / remove cards and bank accounts / cancel any subscriptions and close the old Paypal account before you move countries. If you don't then you may have problems doing so once you have moved and may need to contact customer services for help to resolve things.
