I signed up for paypal over a year ago. The thing is I must of made a typo in my name because instead of two 's' there are three. I have been trying to figure out how to fix that for a while now. Does anyone know how?

For typographical error with yourname on your PayPal account you will need to call PayPal and see if you can request for the agent to change it for you. There are times that they can change it but if its a major change then they will ask you to fax in documents. Try calling there 1-800 number so that you can get it changed.

You can go to help support and change the 's' letter on there. and you can send email the contact service paypal if the way not work. I think if change a letter the way can do its. but if change full name, we must close the old account and create new account with the true name.

Have you tried to email PayPal or go to their main site and change it? I have a phone number for them somewhere around here. If you want it I will look and send it to you by pm. Doubt I can post it here without getting myself into trouble or this discussion deleted.

Try contacting customer service using the email address you signed up there with (the one they use for payments). They should be able to solve the problem for you.
