How do I set my nationality?

 

I am from the Philippines but temporarily residing in Canada.

 

Whenever I create an account, it automatically sets my nationality to Canada.

Paypal is country specific so you have to open a paypal account in the country you reside in and add an address / phone number / bank accounts / cards from within that country.

Hello, @marquisOrtolan!

 

Thank you for reaching out to us through the Community!

 

If you live in Canada, your account must be registered in Canada, as PayPal accounts are country-specific. However, if your nationality is Philipino but in your PayPal account it is Canadian, you can give our Customer Care a call and they will update it for you if you provide proof of identity. Here you can find a link with the contact page: https://www.paypal.com/smarthelp/contact-us.

 

I hope this information helps.

 

María.
