Found 5th Jul 2009
When i signed up to paypal, i entered the wrong name by mistake as i was unsure what i was doing. So my last name and first name were entered as the same. Can i delete the existing paypal account that links to my ebay and then create a new one that links to the ebay account. I want to do this, because the last name is wrong and paypal won't let me change it unless it is a typing error etc. I have emailed them, and they want me to provide documents etc and i'm not sure if this will enable me to actually change my last name as the email help wasn't sufficient.

Sure, close the old Paypal account and then create a new one. Linking the new account to FleaBay is no problem either.

You will obviously have to re-verify cards/bank accounts etc. on your new Paypal account.

How about adding a new address(same one obviously- just using the add new address button) , putting the name correctly on that one - then making that the primary address for your account?
