How do I upgrade my PayPal account?

You can only upgrade your personal account to a business account if you are a sole trader. For all other business types, you’ll need to open a new business account with a different email address and bank account.

Here's how you can upgrade your PayPal account:

  1. Log in to your PayPal account.
  2. Click Settings at the top right corner of the page.
  3. Click Upgrade to a business account under "Account options".
