How do I change my email address?

If you want to change your current email address with another one, you'll need to add the new email address, make it your primary email, and then remove the old email address. 

Here's how:

  1. Go to your ProfileIcon Settings.
  2. Click + in the Email section.
  3. Type the new email address and click Add Email.
  4. If you want this new email address to be your primary email, click the box next to Make this my primary email for receiving notifications. This step will allow you to remove your old primary email address from your account.

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

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.

If you need to update a secondary address, here's how:

  1. Go to your ProfileIcon Settings.
  2. Click Update next to your email address, in the Email section.
  3. Update the email address and click Change Email.
