How do I close my PayPal account?
Before you close your PayPal account, remove any money from your PayPal balance.
If there's a chance that you might want to use PayPal in the future, you can keep your account open.
If you notice a payment that you didn't authorise, please report it right away in the Resolution Centre.
To close your account on the web:
- Go to Settings.
- Click Close your account under "Account options".
- Click Close Account.
To close your account on the app:
- Tap the Profile Icon.
- Tap Close your account.
Once you close your PayPal account, it can't be reopened.
It's not possible to close an account with a remaining balance, an account limitation or other unresolved issues.
