Setting up a business account beside personal one

New Community Member

I opened a business account alongside my personal one because I registered a company in the UK and I verified my bank account too. I have an issue because I can see my business account in Egypt! It seems something went wrong and this would affect my business!

Hi @masbts,


Thanks for reaching out here on the community. It sounds like you have opened your PayPal account using the wrong country. There is no way to change a country once the account has been created so you will need to close this account and open a new one using the correct address details. Make sure to remove any cards or bank accounts before you close the account so you can add them to your new account.


Hope this helps,
