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 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.

You can however add a U.S bank account (not card) to 'most' other countries paypal accounts. This is because paypal is a U.S company and so allows this.

Hi,

I need to close my PayPal account in Taiwan so I can open a PayPal account in US.  I called PayPal US and they told me to call PayPal Taiwan Customer Service to close my account. But the number they gave me does not exist.  What is the customer service number for PayPal in Taiwan?  Please help!

Log into your paypal account that is Taiwan registered and then  >>>>>
Contact options for Paypal are accessed by clicking help/contact bottom left of Paypal pages...

1. Paypal phones are slowly re-opening and increasing in numbers (you can use the guest option if you can't log in).
2. Live chat is also randomly available.
3. You can send them a message, during business hours you may also be able to message whilst logged out.
Or
4. 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: https://www.facebook.com/PayPal and @AskPayPal for Twitter.

I've moved from the US to Canada and understand I need to close my account. Can I reopen it using the same email address?

Yes you should be able to once you have closed the old account.

But i would leave it a while before trying as although paypal say you can others have had issues doing so, so i would leave at least 72 hours to allow paypals system to play catch up.

Hello, 

 

I've moved countries and I wish to change my current address to a Polish address, where I'm currently residing.

I have money on the account and I can't withdraw because my new back accounts cards from the new location, are not linked with the old billing adress. So is there a possibility of changing countries & addresses given that I have money on the account, without having to close the account? 

 

Best Regards
