No, you need to withdraw those funds first to your bank account BEFORE you close the account.
Is there a time for the old email adress to be cleared for your system so I use it again with a new adress?
Siobhan, hello from Malta.
Based on your email (and on the offical help desk also), I have to close my account and cretae a new one. Can I use the same email address in the new account? How long is the minimum time in order to do so?
Thank you in advance!
So you have to create a whole new account just to change or add a bank account from another country? This is really retarded, I honestly can't be assed to do that. Easier to just go there and give them the cash myself.
Hi, I have moved countries and I still have funds in my PayPal account in the UK. How do I change my account details so that I can use my funds in my new country of residence? Please let me know ASAP as your customer service email system is useless. Thank you.
I understand this situation can be annoying. I am afraid, when you move to another country, you need to close your PayPal account and create a new account using your new address. It's not possible to change the address on your PayPal account to a new country. Best option is to withdraw your funds into a bank account then close your PayPal account.
If you have addresses in both countries, you can keep your PayPal account and create a new one, but only one of your accounts (if any) should be a Business account. You'll need to use different email addresses for each account. An email address cannot be registered to two separate PayPal accounts.
Here’s how to close your old PayPal account:
We may ask you to confirm ownership of the account before closing it.
After you close your account, any transactions that are in progress are cancelled.
Here’s how to create a new PayPal account:
After you have confirmed your email address, you can use your new account.
I hope this info helps.
