I made a PayPal account when I was about 15/16 and I'm worried about my account getting closed due to being underage when I made it - I've read about people getting blocked from making new PayPal accounts due to this! I'm wondering if there would be any point to taking my bank and card info off my account and making a new one (I'm 18 now). Would this be possible? Has anyone else has issues with a PayPal account they created when they're under 18? Thanks.

You can ask on the paypal forums, but when I looked at this there seemed to be 2 ways to get an account.

1. They had a student scheme for certain countries, but it doesnt sound like you were old enough.
2. You could make one in co ordination with your parents.

It sounds like you made your account on the back of telling some lies.

Ask on the forums, but I think I might shut it down and make a new one, especially if paypal is important to you.
