Hey Maffhew,

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

I'm sorry but this isn't a possibility at the moment. It may become an options for customers at some point in future but it's not currently an available feature on the PayPal.me service at this time.

 

I will ensure that your feedback is forwarded to the relevant teams. If there is anything else that we can do to help you in future, you know where to find us.

 

David.

I also put in a Vote to be able to change the URL in the future as I would like to change to another name

What purpose would the uRL name change have?  but in any event yo could try a online link renaming tool like Bit_ly to creat a custom URL link.  We fime the customization of the payment portal that the customers sees once they click the lnk is quite effective.

There are multiple reasons someone might want to change the url. In our case, our school parent guild didn't realize the name was permanat. We picked one for one fundraiser and now we are stuck with it. Ugh. Also, it would be nice to be able to make a new one for each event we hold.

I did the same thing. Wanted to use it to raise money for a fundraiser that I was managing funds for and now am stuck with something "professional" for my personal account

Same problem here.  I chose a named that's leads to a now dead website.   Unfortuantely It seems paypal doesn't care because after all the inquirys, comments and questions they haven't done a thing to change it.

Agree.  If PayPal.Me wants to compete with other payment services, please let users change name or add sub-names.  

  1. Business users need matching names for domain, eBay, and PayPal.Me; so customers won't pay the wrong business.  
  2. Non-profit and personal users need sub-names or tags to separate events.  For example, ABCschool-2019walkathon.

Re: Change PayPal.me Url

Good question! Answer ~ I have decided to attach my .me link to my main consulting firm and without the ability to change the .me link I would not use it as it does not reflect or brand the correct name. And using a bit.ly link for finanacial purposes is not recommended as many do not trust links outside of the media they are using.
