Default How to make Paypal delete your account?

Hello,

How can I make Paypal delete my account which has wrong information and a little bit of balance on it.

I don't care about the balance, I just want the account gone for good. Contacted support, but they WANT me to verify my name, etc. with documents. What do I do?

If the account is not limited, just go in your settings on bottom left you'll see where you can close account.

PayPal never actually deletes any information.....Even closing your account will not make it go away completely.

You can withdraw the balance and then close the account so long as it's not limited. They will still keep all the information on file though. PayPal never truly delete anything

I 100% agree with this. PayPal will never delete an active or inactive account. All the information they collect is kept forever for archival, law enforcement, and duplicate account checks.

As others have said, PayPal will never delete your personal information.

In the UK we can have insitutions remove all information they hold about us, but when I looked into it with regards to PayPal, they use excuses such as 'eliminating financial risk' etc. to hold your data for as long as they wish. No way around it im afraid.
