Linking bank account from another country.

Hello,

I am a US citizen who is also a resident of Europe.  My Paypal account is from the US, and I have my US bank account linked.  However, I would like to link my European bank account as well, but I am unsure how to go about doing so.

 

Thank you.

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 / cancel any subscriptions and close the old Paypal account 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.

Thank you. I opted not to cancel my US PayPal account or other things like bank account, cards, etc. because I still visit the US frequently and my long-term plans are uncertain. I have created a new PayPal account for my current country of residence.

You can have 2 paypal accounts but only if 1 is personal and the other 1 is business.
