If you already have a PayPal account as a:

  • Consumer, freelancer or casual seller, entrepreneur or sole proprietor with an account opened before 7 March, 2021: We will be transferring these accounts to PayPal Thailand in December 2022. As part of this process, you will first need to take some actions for your account to be transferred, so you can continue using your account after 15 December, 2022. Please refer to the email we have sent you on or after 11 October, 2022 for guidance.
    Until then, you can continue to use your account as usual, including shopping with your PayPal wallet, and to send and receive money with it.
  • Entrepreneur or sole proprietor with an account opened after 7 March, 2021: You will have received an email from us with guidance, on or after 11 October, 2022. As part of this process, you will need to take some actions to continue using PayPal after 15 December, 2022. If you have not received this email, please contact us for assistance.
  • Registered business: Your account, if eligible, would have been transferred to PayPal Thailand in March 2022. You would have been notified accordingly at that time, and you can continue to make and receive payments with your PayPal Thailand business account.
    If your account was not transferred to PayPal Thailand, you can no longer make and receive payments with it, although you can continue to withdraw funds to your bank account. You will need to open a new PayPal Thailand business account to continue using PayPal.
