So when I register my paypal account, I do not read the terms that in order to send money to my bank account, my registration name in paypal MUST BE the same with my bank account. So, I only register my first name and surname to paypal while my bank account has 4 names in it. I readin TOS, I must send the copy of my ID to them via e-mail. For me, too much complication on doing this. My question is, if I open another account, can I transfer ALL my balance from my OLD to NEW account? Really appreciate your response...

We got the same problem. I registered my nickname on my paypal because at first i am very hesitant to this online earning program. But when i started to earn then i was convince that it is true that people can earn through internet. Somebody suggested to me that i should open a new account with my real name, which was i did. My only problem now is I have only one card to be use for verification. And now i am waiting for my new card from a certain bank and once i got verified i will transfer my fund from my old paypal account to my new one.

well, actually I have other credit card that I can use to verify my account, but since I'm too lazy to open new account, I just contact them to see if i could change my account name. Hopefully it can!

You should contacting paypal help as soon as possible and tell them if you've just made a mistake. I think perhaps you did that mistake because of you didn't read the text carefully so you entered a wrong bank account in your paypal account. So, a fast reaction to preventing account cancellation should be act now. I think you can updating your banking account as well on your paypal account by adding one more bank account there. And remember to contact paypal help for more details. They will asking you to send them a real copy or scan of your banking account details with your ID card copy attached with it as well. It will help you to fixing your problem. Good luck and have a nice day. Happy mylotting.

Problem is...none of my bank account name is the same as my paypal account name since my original ID card using my full name instead just first name and surname. I may contact paypal for detail, but I think it took longer process than open a new account.

It's too costly faxing my documents to them since I don't live in US. I will try to contact them via e-mail. Thanks for the response

I think you can do it that way, open a new paypal account and then send your money form the old to the new account I think they will charge you a little. What I am not sure of is if you can use the same bank account. I don't know if you can link 2 paypal accounts to 1 bank account. Well, good luck! ?

My father's Paypal account is not verified yet and mine is verified. My father can still transfer money in his Paypal account to my Paypal account and it is no problem at all. So I think even if a Paypal account is not verified, it can still transfer money. If you sign up another Paypal account with your correct information, you can transfer money from your current Paypal account. It is easy to sign up a new account, so you can try and it won't waste you anything. I love China

You can have 2 Paypal accounts but these 2 must be of different type, thatis 1 personal the other business etc. And you CAN'T transfer fund in between these 2. I've personally ask Paypal about this before as I want to transfer fund between 2 accounts. You can contact PayPal 1st regard your problem and see if you really have to go by the tedious verify way. Thing may not be as bad as you think.

I was able transfer money from my Paypal account into a bank account that I didn't even have my name on! It was my husband's account. In fact, my Paypal account had my maiden name on it, so not even the last name matched, lol! I did have access to the account, so I was able to verify the amounts that they deposited. I really don't think that you'll have a problem transfering the funds, but you can call or e-mail their customer service if you're worried. I've called them once or twice and they've always been really helpful.

The easiest way for you to do is make a new paypal account with the name same as your bank, then transfer the money from your old paypal to your new paypal acccont since paypal allows us to make multi accounts. there's no fees when you transfer money from paypal to paypal.

I never had this problem now you can call pay pal and they can probably fix it for you as well. So try to call first, but if you have to send an id what i do is take a picture of it and then send it to them if you do not have a scanner or anything. Call them first to see if they can fix it since you know your account. Yeah you would want your account to have the same name just your first and last. If you open another one you might be able to do that as well.
