How can I change my PayPal email address?

The PayPal email address is important as it is what Adyen uses to identify your merchant account on Paypal. This merchant identification (MID) is used to recognize you as the merchant when Adyen processes a PayPal payment


When changing your PayPal email you are essentially changing the merchant identification (MID) for PayPal. Because of this, you need to create a new PayPal account with the desired email. Once this is setup please reach out to Adyen Support and they will recreate your PayPal payment method with the new email address (MID).
