QUESTION ABOUT NAME CHANGE

Hi, I wanna add balance to my Paypal Account through my bank, and it says the full name must be the same. In my Paypal Account I have my first and last name and in my Bank Account I have a middle name as well. Will I have to change my name in paypal?

You know that you don't ''need'' to add funds to your paypal account balance as a buyer do you?

Only normally paypal will credit the seller for you and then paypal will wait for the transfer of funds from your funding source directly to paypal to pay them back again.

 

However if you want to add funds then it should be ok name-wise. I transfer funds to my bank account and the paypal account is in my name but the bank account is a joint account and in both names and never been a problem.
