Hi there Samanthacoo,

 

When you move to another country, you need to close your old PayPal account and create a new account using your new address.

 

If you reside in both countries, you can keep your old PayPal account and create a new one, but only one of your accounts (if any) should be a Business account.

Hi there mondz, 

 

You cannot change country as advised above. You need to close your account and open on in your new country of residence.

 

Here’s how to close your old PayPal account:

  1. Go to www.paypal.co.uk and log in to your account.
  2. Click ‘Profile’ near the top of the page.
  3. Select ‘My account settings’.
  4. In the ‘Account Type’ section, click ‘Close account’ and follow the instructions. 

Here’s how to create a new PayPal account:

  1. Go to www.paypal.co.uk
  2. Click ‘Sign Up’ at the top of the page.
  3. Select your country or region and your language.
  4. Select the type of account you want to create, and then click ‘Get Started.’
  5. Enter your information, and then click ‘Agree and Create Account.’

After you have confirmed your email address, you can use your new account.

 

Also, you can only use an email address on one PayPal account at a time.

Hi,

I have moved from the UK to the UAE and I know that I need to create a new PayPal account for my country of residence (the UAE), in order to use a billing address in the UAE. What I want to know is, can I use the same UK bank account for a UAE PayPal account? This is important because the billing address for my UK bank account is a UAE billing address. For some reason, PayPal requires billing addresses (for credit cards) and contact phone numbers, to be in the same country that the PayPal account was registered in, which is not always the case especially nowadays as people are relocating more often.

"PayPal requires billing addresses (for credit cards) and contact phone numbers"

People are too much scared by rules. Nothing like that is really needed unless you want to obey. I have my billing address completely wrong, even country doesnt match the credit card issues coun the name doesnt match holder, the phone is from some random country... and guess what. I am successfuly using the account for years and made many transactions around the world.

I protect my privacy. I never provide real data on the internet. Simple as that.

Do you know if you can use the same credit cards for "different" accounts?

Hi jackichan111,

 

Welcome to the PayPal community forum. New members are always welcome.

 

On PayPal a card can only be registered to one PayPal account at a time.

 

I hope this answers your question.
