Re: Account link



In order to change your link, you'll have to close the PayPal account and open a new PayPal account because the links can't be edited once created so choose wisely.


Close account checklist:


  1. Resolve any open disputes or account limitations.
  2. Zero out the balance.
  3. Cancel any active automatic payments.
  4. Remove financial info (bank accounts, cards).
  5. Go to Settings (cog icon).
  6. Click Close Account under Account Options section.

Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂
