Hi guys.

 

I'm sorry but it's not possible to change the country that your PayPal accounts are registered in.

 

If you have moved to a different country, you can either close your current PayPal account so that you can use the same email address to create a new account or you can keep your current account open and create a new account in the country that you are living in at the moment.

 

David.

You can add a 2nd e-mail for the first account setup the new one as the prior one than delete the first e-mail address from the list. Create the new account and add the deleted e-mail address to this new account as thd prior one. Easy.

They weren't asking how to re-use an email address, they were asking about changing countries.

No you can't CHANGE your paypal account to another country, you have to close the old paypal account down and then open another paypal account in the country where you now reside making sure you add a phone number / address / cards / bank accounts from within that country.

I've recently moved from Canada to Spain so i wanted to change my home adress and my credit card number since i deleted my account in Canada, when i did this i forgot that i had netflix and twitch linked on my bank acount and so my paypal account, since my bank account was deleted they took the money from paypal and now i'm in negative balance. I need to pay this to delete my account but every time i try it shows this mesage after putting in my information: 

"Sorry — your last action could not be completed
 

If you were making a purchase or sending money, we recommend that you check both your PayPal account and your email for a transaction confirmation after 30 minutes.

If you came to this page from another website, please return to that site (don't use your browser's Back button) and restart your activity.

If you came from PayPal's website, click the PayPal logo in the upper-left corner to return to our home page and restart your activity. You might have to log in again."

I moved from UAE to India. To change country I have to close the account first and for that I must have zero balance. Paypal site does not allow either closing or the transferring the money . If we complain, they simply mail saying they tried to call, but they do not as I do not have any missing number. If I call, it is automated, and I have to spend a lot of money. A lot of people face this problem but it has not been solved.  I authorized them to close it and transfer the money to my new account when I open. No use. I have been trying this for many months now. One should think of alternatives.

Hi Guys,

 

Thank you for contacting the Community Forum and welcome to dikshant as a new member!

 

Once you have created a new PayPal Account you can log into the old account and send the money yourself.

 

To send money:

  1. Go to www.paypal.com and log in to your account.
  2. At the top of the page, select Send and Request.
  3. Depending on your preference, select Pay for goods or services or Send money to friends or family.

If you experience any difficulties I would suggest you call us.

 

Thanks - Siobhan

Totally useless, I agree. And nobody replies to emails...
