How do I delete my account on the website?

To close your PayPal account through the website:

Go to www.paypal.com and log in to your account Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on Close Account

This action is irreversible. Any account information stored in your PayPal account will be permanently deleted within 30 days.

Please note that this process cannot be undone. If you no longer wish to delete your account, please contact customer support for further assistance.

Please note: If you made a purchase using your PayPal account and do not have a backup funding source (credit card, bank account), the purchase may be cancelled by the merchant and you could lose access to any goods/services you purchased. We recommend contacting the merchant to request the transaction be completed using another method of payment.
