closing account

To whom this may concern, i am very sorry but when i was setting up my account i accidentally pressed business instead of personal. Is there any way of me changing my account to personal or closing my account and making a new one. I also have a balance of £1 meaning that i cant close it myself and when i try and send it to someone else it says that there is a problem, could you help me solve it please.


Re: closing account

Re: closing account

There is no automatic way to downgrade a business account to a personal account, you have to contact customer services and they will do that for you.

Click help / contact bottom left of Paypal pages for options available for your country.

Or 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: and @AskPayPal for Twitter.
You could just close your business account (removing all subscriptions / financial info etc first) and open a personal one.
