How do I close my PayPal account?

If you close your PayPal account, it can’t be reopened. Any scheduled or incomplete transactions are canceled. You can’t close your account if there are limitations, unresolved issues, or a balance. Also, if you have an email address on your account that you haven’t confirmed, remove it from your account before you close it.

To close your account:

  1. Click the Settings icon next to "Log Out."
  2. Click Close your account under "Account options."
