How do I change the name on my PayPal account?

We can help you change the name on your account if it's misspelled or if you've legally changed your name. However, it is not possible to change the name on your account to another person's name.

Here’s how to change your name:

  1. Go to your SettingsProfile Icon.
  2. Click Edit beside "Name".
  3. Select the change you want to make and click Continue.
  4. Follow the instructions on the page.

Note: You may be required to submit some documentation. If so, we’ll review them within 3 to 5 working days and contact you once our review is complete.
