How do I change my business name?

If you have a Business account, you can change the name of your business.

Here's how to change the name of your business.

  1. Go to the Business Information section in your Account Settings.
  2. Click Update to the right of your Business name.
  3. Click Edit on the upper-right corner of your Business profile.
  4. Click Change under your Business name and select “Your business name has changed.”
  5. Follow the on-screen instructions to submit your name change request and documents.

Depending on the name change you are making, you may be required to upload documentation.

You must be able to verify the legal name change of the business. If it’s a new business, create a new PayPal business account rather than updating the business name on an existing account.

To transfer money to your bank, the new business name on your PayPal account must match the name registered on your bank account.
