i have created paypal with australian master card ,can i used in afghanistan? my uncle living in australia butt i live in afghanistan.
please reply me
Your account must be created in the country where you reside with financial links in the same country with the same in-country address.
If you go to another country you need to open a PayPal account in that country.
Can I receive Euros in my account from a Europe friend, and keep the Euros seperate from my US dollars?
The Euros I receive from Friend1, I may later need to send to Friend2 in Europe.
You can definitely have more than one currency in a PayPal account! You can find details on currencies here. I hope this helps!

Hi, I just bought an iPad and downloaded the Paypal appication. While trying to log in to set everything I was informed my acct was being upgraded to a business acct. I do not want to register a business acct because I do no have a business. This App is giving me no freaking options. Its like they assume thats the only way to proceed forward is to register a business. I tried to play along at first and it is asking me for a business name, ph # and tax ID. If I leave any of those options blank then I could not go forward or proceed with the registration. Can someone shine a light as to how to log in without registering as a business? This i incredibly annoying. Give us some options!
It sounds like you may have downloaded either the PayPal Here or the PayPal Business app. These apps require a business account, which is why it would be trying to make you upgrade when logging in. Check the app store and make sure you're choosing the app that only says "PayPal" and you shouldn't be asked to upgrade.
Hope this helps! Have a great rest of your day.

According to PayPal policy, it is not possible to change the name of the account holder unless it is a minor change.
When the account was created it was done so using a business partner name. Since then the partner has left the company leaving us with a major problem as verification of the account cannot proceed.
The email address used to login and the credit card are both mine.
We have submitted the documents for a name change, including ID & Credit Card Statements as requested by PayPal in the hope that the Compliance Department would be able to see that a name change is indeed needed.
Apparently, after reading the forums, this can take a very long time to do.
Can someone suggest a way forward?
1.) Create a Business Account as an Individual?
2.) Transfer all the funds to our bank account and reopen a PayPal Account using the correct information? (Is this doable? Limitations on transfers due to the account needing verification?)
3.) Other suggestions?
Also, how does one contact PayPal via email? We are based in South Africa and the US call centre does not appear to take our issue seriously.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
It seems your issue is not really a name change but an account holder change; you can't do that.
I assume you meant the account was in the name of another person and that other person is no longer part of the business.
What financial links were used? Was the financial ID used that of the business or that of the other account holder?
I see that the credit card is in your name; this creates another problem as the account has one name but credit card of another name.
I think you just need to open a new account with a new account holder name. Since the accounts were in the name of a person you can't just transfer funds from one account to another like you would do with a bank. You would have to ask the other account holder to send you the funds for your new account.
I think you have a serious problem with conficting information used for the original account.
To contact PayPal support click on Help & Contact at the bottom of the page and select from the options available.
You need to understand PayPal ID and security policies and then very carefully and logically lay out plan, not missing any detail.
So I use Chase Bank with my paypal to forward money once a month. Chase requires an ACH to waive fees for me. Does anyone know if a Paypal cash transfer to my Chase Checking account is an ACH transaction?? Chase has been no help in answering this and Paypal has a rather Byzantine phone system.
Yes - honestly I am just being rather cheap about things. Chase wants me to keep $1500 in the checking and I would rather park it somewhere like Etrade that does not require a minimum to avoid fees. Thank you all for the help.
I am from Vietnam, i have made withdraw for 15k usd from Paypal to my local bank (Vietcombank, a big bank in Vietnam), this is my saving money in years working an software engineer, but i got big problem, Paypal Singapore has had big problem, they have not sent my bank statement to Citi Bank so that Citi Bank sends payment to my local bank to receive money correctly. I reported my bank, the bank said such, the bank said that "we see unusual on Paypal side, many clients complaints they also failed the payment for all transactions from Paypal on 31th OCT 2016, 01st NOV, 02sd NOV 2017, there are no statements from Citibank(on behalf of Paypal) sent out the payments, seems Paypal has internal problem with these days"
I opened some tickets and called to Paypal Singapore but have not got the right answer, just generally waiting and waiting, and auto stupid messages in the message center.
Anyone sees this problem like me? of course my local bank account is valid and i have done previous transaction fine except this, i can sure that this is Paypal problem for their hidden internal and they do not expose or share with me for this
I am very worry about my legal money, sometime i think Paypal is not problem with their financial in these days and become unstable?
Please help me because i have waited 10 days without information to know?
Not happy with Paypal working with this way, bad support and questions are ignored
Feedback: They returned money to my Paypal account back on 11th NOV 2017, they have no explaination why failed and have no back tracking information.
I will make withdraw again but Paypal works in this way is not right and be bad management proccess
I bet there is a system problem because multiple people are posting about this. I too am experiencing the same problem. I have messaged them and am currently waiting on the phone to speak to someone. I hope this is figured out..... she said they are currently doing a system upgrade.
I would just like to ADD A Folder, For This,
Transactions that I do with a Certain Sore.
Thats All, Simple, can not find out How to do this !
Are you referring to the downloaded report you can get within your account? If so, there's no way to filter that on PayPal. Regrettably, it would have to be sorted manually from within the spreadsheet once you download it.
I hope this helps!

someone wants to send $$. Is my account my email address?
Welcome to the community!
That's absolutely correct! A sender would only need your email address in order to send you a payment. Please also make sure that your email address is confirmed on your PayPal account, as the payment, once sent, will only show up once the email is confirmed.
I hope this helps!
Hello I received an email regarding that my account is now limited. I followed the directions to verify I am the account holder and when I logged into my account it doesn't show that there are any cases opened regarding my account. Is there something I'm missing? I would really appreciate assistance on this!
