How to convert my business account to personal account?

Posted on

I'm very new to the PayPal. When I did signup for pay-pal I was sneaking around all the options available and I did signup for business account as well.

Till the time I realize and i wanted to close business account I got some money credited into the account by a known person. Now that money is on HOLD.


I want to convert the business account to personal account. And I also would like to know, after conversion is done what will happen to the money that's on hold.





How to convert my business account to personal account?

There is no automatic way to downgrade a business account to a personal account, you have to contact customer services and they will do that for you.

Click help / contact bottom left of Paypal pages for options available for your country.

Or have you considered contacting Customer Service via Facebook or Twitter?
You can send them a personal message from their facebook or twitter pages.
It's: and @AskPayPal for Twitter.
You could just close your business account (removing all subscriptions / financial info etc first) and open a personal one.
