How do I change the Purpose Code on my PayPal account?

A Purpose Code explains the reason for your cross-border transactions and is required when you confirm your identity with us. You can change it later according to your business needs.

To change the Purpose Code on your PayPal account:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Click Edit beside "Purpose Code".
  3. Select a Purpose Code, and then click Save.
If you haven't added a Purpose Code, complete your identity confirmation now to start receiving and withdrawing PayPal payments.
