I'm currently emailing with PayPal about the issue and after a clear request for an URL change (with good arguments as to why this should be possible) they refused to help me. Every other platform I use gives me the ability to change my URL or username, plus we live in a digital age where changes happen all the time, so in my opinion the fact that PayPal lacks such a feature is something they're failing at considerably. I'm actually looking into doing more, because this might actually hurt me as a musician right now. My donation link is not representing the artist name I use as a musician, meaning that fans might decide to not donate because they think it's not the right page. This in itself is something PayPal should be scratching their heads about, because I'm pretty sure this is not the result they were looking for. And it's not like implementing this feature is such a hard task, I could even hook PayPal up with a programmer who could write the change for them with ease. So don't come at us with "This is not possible", because it clearly is, you from PayPal are just refusing a legitimate request of your users. I'm lucky to be in the position that I have quite some influence in the music production industry and I run a YouTube channel followed by more than 50.000 musicians worldwide. Musicians care a lot about branding and how they present themselves across social media, so I think everybody will be more than interested to hear about how PayPal refuses to help people in this case. Heck, it might even warn some people about it so they think wisely about their URL (and artist name or company name, because if you end up rebranding those, you'll be stuck with an old URL, like me...) Let's put a stop to this guys and let's show PayPal it's time they start listening to their users!

Sorry but that post is rediculous! You haven't even read the topic otherwise you wouldn't have posted that generic copy-paste response. We are in the need of CHANGING our Paypal.me URL!! Every big website offers you to change your URL or username, yet PayPal can't implement a little feature to change your URL. Reason for the change is I completely rebranded my business with a new name, but now I'm stuck with an old PayPal.me URL that doesn't represent the right name. How hard can it be to allow us to change our URL? I've been doing business using PayPal for more than 8 years, but this makes me absolutely furious. Then again if there would be proper support then no issue it would be fine, but there is no proper support! Instead some copy-paste response to a very legitimate question that by now has been backed by more than 200 people. FIX IT PAYPAL!
