Changing username


Hello @staceydmorris

Welcome to the PayPal Community! 

If you'd like to change your Community username, you can let us know your top three choices, and we'll update it for you. However, if you're referring to a different username, such as a PayPal.Me ID, you'll want to contact Customer Support for assistance. You can contact Customer Support by clicking 'Contact' at the bottom of any PayPal page. Support is also available if you send a DM to @AskPayPal on Twitter or a PM to

I hope this helps!

Changing username


Hi Stacey, I made an error and I have to change it or sleep on the couch for the remainder of eternity….. or possibly longer !  I was to have put the Username as HildySueAndBillyBelly  But…. Having the attention span of a gnat I **bleep** it up.  

Anything you can do to help keep me off the couch will be so gratefully appreciated ! 
Thank YOU !
