What’s a primary email address? How do I change my primary email address?

You can use your primary email address to receive payments and notifications from PayPal.

If you want to change your primary email address, there must be at least one other email address on file. If necessary, you can add and confirm a new email address, and then make it your primary email address.

Here’s how to change your primary email address:
  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Click Update beside your new email address.
  3. Check “Make this your primary email address to receive notifications.”
  4. Click Change Email.
