Switching from a US to Aus account

Hey Guys, 

 

I moved from the US to Aus and want to link my Australian address + cards but it won't let me. Is there a way to change your location or do I need to sign up for a new account?

 

Thanks

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 / and bank accounts from within that country.

You are supposed to withdraw any funds / resolve issues / remove cards and bank accounts before you leave your old country. If you don't then you may have problems doing so once you have moved.

The only exception is U.S expats can add their bank accounts to other countries paypal accounts (paypal is a U.S company so they allow their citizens to do this).
