Change of Country

As far as it is a couple of months I've moved to the United States from Canada, my PayPal is still connected to my Canadian bank and I am not able to change it. Paypal thinks my country is still Canada and only shows the Canadian banks. Even I am not able to change the address of residence and it only shows Canadian provinces and I can not find American states.

Changing nationality is also disabled for me and I can not change that one.

My question is that does anybody have any idea about that? I really appreciate in advance if you share that idea with me.

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.
