Hi there!

 

I can't find this answer anywhere. What are the dimensions for the cover photo on paypal.me?

 

Thanks in advance.

W: 480

H: 265 will work

Moeez is close but not quite.

 

The PayPal.me banner is very bizarre with how it fits.  The bottom and sides of it are ALWAYS cut off.  I'm not sure how this can happen.  Hopefully it gets fixed at some point to be sane.

 

For now I'm using 600 x 331, but only the top centre 480 x 265 shows.

 

If you use Photoshop, you can create your image at 480 x 265, then change the canvas size (Alt+Ctrl+C) to 600 x 331 while anchored at the top centre.  Just make your background cover the whole thing in case I'm off by a few pixels and that'll look great when you upload.

 

It's not down to the pixel, but I'm not spending any more time on mine.  I already wasted over 1-2 hours resizing my image and all its elements over and over and over trying to make it look right.  I can't understand how anyone designed this to be so strange.  PayPal, fix this.

@JadeCandy1 totally got me on the right track, and I suppose the difference I've experienced might be due to differing screen resolutions, or possibly PayPal changed something since this thread started.

 

When I followed their lead my header had awful resolution, and the top was still too cut off. What I did was exactly as @JadeCandy1 JadeCandy1 instructed, except I increased the sizes by 200%, and left the graphic centred, rather than aligning it to the top. Looks perfect now.

@HeadsquirrelsThat's so strange how it's working.  It doesn't make any sense.  Sorry my way couldn't be any help.  I wonder if PayPal changed it.  I remember testing it out by resizing my window to all different sizes to make sure it would look good on my customer's screens too no matter their setups, so I don't think that would be it.  Bizarre!

Ridiculously inept. The upload preview NEVER matches the final photo. Inconsistent ad frustrating. Take some of the gobs of money you're making, hire a coder and FIX THIS!!!!!!!!!! @#$%&*!

Just make a 500k by 500k for the profile photo. I've never had an issue.

I took a screen shot of the background ( I was struggling to make in AI), saved it as a photo and then uploaded it. It worked perfectly. Before this, I tried resizing all different ways with illustrator and it would not work. Go figure, It says upload "photo"

*for blurred / pixelated background/header image*

took me a half hour to realize they built it for mobile. upload from paypal app on your phone. login with your paypal.me account, tap @yourprofile, then edit your paypal.me link there. worked first time.

tried everything on desktop, matched exact size of template svg images, no avail. only phone upload works.
