How do I update my email address?

You may add up to eight email addresses to your PayPal account. Remember that each email address can only be associated to one PayPal account at a time.

If you want to replace your current email address with another one, simply add a new address and remove your oldt one:

  1. Log in to your PayPal account.
  2. Go to your ProfileIcon Settings.
  3. Click + under the Email section.
  4. Type the new email address and click Add Email.

To remove your old email address, simply click Remove next to that email.

Note: Once you add a new email address to your PayPal account, you need to confirm it. Click Update next to the newly added email and then click Confirm this email.

Since editing your primary email address is not an option, here’s how to update your secondary one:

  1. Log in to your PayPal account.
  2. Go to your ProfileIcon Settings.
  3. Click Update next to your email address, under the Email section.
  4. Type the new email address and click Change Email.
