If it’s so easy, why can’t I delete my PayPal bank account? Because PayPal has a number of protection mechanisms, as he has been the victim of both scams and lawsuits. It does not delete it for the following reasons:

  • Because you used it very frequently and you want to eliminate it from one day to the next.
  • You have it configured to make automatic payments and withdrawals.
  • No more than 7 business days have passed since your last transaction with the account.

Our suggestion is that you go to the automatic charges and withdrawals section and disable them (if that is the case) and allow about 10 calendar days to pass since you made the last transaction with that account and try to delete it again, you should have no problems. If you still see the message: Unable to delete bank account at this time so…keep reading.

In case the problem always persists you can contact the PayPal customer service department and send a message explaining your case. There are many PayPal accounts that you need a VPN to enter, so it is not a bad idea that you see this article on how to make a VPN go faster.
