How do I change the name on my PayPal account?

You can request for a name change on your account if it's misspelled or if you've legally changed your name. However, it's not allowed to change the name on your account to another person's name.

Here’s how to request for a name change:

  1. Go to your SettingsProfile Icon.
  2. Click Update beside your name.
  3. Select the type of change you want to make and click Continue.
  4. Follow the instructions to complete the name change process.

You may be required to submit documentation such as valid photo identification to support your name change request. You can choose to upload or fax your files. Once we receive your documents, we’ll review them within 3 to 5 working days and contact you when our review is complete.
