How do I add or change email addresses in my PayPal account?

If you haven't completed identity confirmation, you may not be able to modify the email address registered on your PayPal account. In such cases, you can either close your current PayPal account and create a new one using your new email address, or you can complete identity confirmation first and then update the email address.

If you've already completed identity confirmation, you can add a new email address to your PayPal account following the steps below. Each email address can be used in one PayPal account at a time.

  1. Go to your Settings.
  2. Click + next to "Email addresses."
  3. Enter your email address, and click Add Email Address.


 As long as there are more than one email addresses in your account, you can also modify an existing email address. Simply click on the email address in your Settings and update it.
