My Paypal.me shows my full name as the 'username' <removed> but I use this for my self-publishing and my pen name is M. A. <removed> - I'd rather keep it like this to avoid having others know my full name. Is there a way to modify the end part of the paypal.me? Or use Paypal.me with my business account instead?
Thank you for your post! Your PayPal.me page will show your full name if it's associated with a Personal account, or your Business name if it's associated with a Business account. Business accounts can only accept Goods and Services payments through PayPal.me. It is not possible to change or transfer your PayPal.me URL. The unique link that you created is the only one that can be used with your PayPal account.
I hope this information helps!
"The unique link that you created is the only one that can be used with your PayPal account."
I never created a unique link though - is there a way for me to create one instead of it showing my name?
Thank you 🙂
You can choose a word for the PayPal.me URL that is not your name. Many people choose their name, but that is not required. However, your account will still show up under the name that you have associated with it. The other party in a transaction will always be able to see the name on your account, as this information is necessary for the differentiation of transactions in the records of both accounts.
I hope this helps!
When you visit https://PayPal.me and set up your account, you will be prompted to choose the word that will complete the PayPal.me URL. When you choose yours, you could choose something like MAPublishing or pretty much anything else. As long as no one has taken it first, your URL will be PayPal.me followed by a slash and that word that you chose. Once chosen, that URL is permanent and cannot be changed. When others visit that URL, they will see your name that's on your account and your PayPal.me profile photo if you add one, as well as your city and state.
I hope this helps!
That's what I was asking from the start - if there was a way for me to modify that paypal.me username after it was already set up the first time. And after several threads, you've answered my question by stating that once it's set up, it can't be modified.
