I hope the future is near. Because I'm sick and tired of closing my account just to make a url change. Many of us use PaPal for business. And it makes no sense why one cannot change their PayPal.me link, when businesses are changing all the time for numerous reasons. So please, make this update sooner than later. Because it's extremely irritating when you have to close an account, to open a new account, and then you have to wait for your account to pass a probation period that makes you wait to receive your money because your money is pending for 21 days. Now I understand that you give the option to mark a transaction processed by sending the buyer an email. But, italki.com, the company I work for, is getting irritated because of this.
This needs to be changeable. That, or give us the ability to make, say, 10 links so that the one permanent one is a help and not an albatross.
This is supposed to be a helping tool, not the bane of our existence.
Hi, I last see this topic raised almost three years ago. Has anything changed/is it possible to update your paypal.me link yet? Is there an option to go through PayPal tech support do it? When I set it up, it was not clear it would forever have to be that name and it was named specifically for a large event, not for me personally.
I own a one-woman parent digital media company, but the most prominent project within it is DTWJLife and I would like to change the URL to that syntax as it is more appropriate for this large project I am working on building. I don't take changes to my business lightly and every project and sub-projects within that I do are carefully considered before changing the name to my URL. This option would be beneficial to my customers so they can identify me easily and there is no confusion in communication.
So due to my fat fingers, I have typed my paypal.me link incorrectly so I want to correct it.
I see that I can turn it on or off under the Manager function but I would like it if there was an 'Edit' or 'Update' option as well.
So until one of those options become available, I have to turn it off which is a bit of bummer 😞
This was posted in Nov., 2015 and it is now Dec., 2018. Many people are having this problem still. Are there any plans to allow users to update their paypal.me link or were you lying before?
David wasn't lying, he stated ''It may become an options for customers at some point in future'' that was not a promise that it would !!
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, this isn't really acceptable. Can you get on them to change this??? LOL, what a mess.
