I need help to setup my business account


Is there any way to make my business have a country and my personal information has a different country? I'm trying to set up a new business account, when I made my business country in the UK, I clicked my personal info different than my business address, but it keep showing my countries in the UK, I don't live in the UK.


I'm managing and owning a company in the UK, but currently, I'm living in Egypt, How to make this possible? so when PayPal ask me about my ID they don't see my Egypt ID and my account in the UK, this will limit or block my account

Hi @GamalMohamedK,


Welcome to the community and thank you for your post!


I do understand your query. When creating a PayPal account, you must do so in the country you are currently living in. You are not permitted to run an account from a different country I'm afraid. 


When it comes to verifying your account, you won't be able to complete the process as you are living in a different country. This would then effect you using your account. 


You would need to either close your UK account, and only use PayPal as a personal account in Egypt, or if you ever go back to live in the UK you can then use your account.


If you have any further concerns, please don't hesitate to contact our Customer Support. To contact us, simply click here. Alternatively, you can contact us via Facebook https://www.facebook.com/PayPal or Twitter @AskPayPal.

I hope this helps!
