Is it possible to open a Paypal account if your old one was suspended years ago?

    If you have a different physical address, email address and a different bank account/credit card to attach to it.

    Beware of doing this though, as if you were suspended and in debt to outstanding refunds or whatnot, you will fall victim to recovery payments and account liquidation should paypal update/merge your accounts at any time.

    No, I don't owe Paypal anything and I don't have a new mailing address, etc. How can I go about opening a new account? It has been a couple of years since they suspended it.

    It takes only a minute to open a new account, just as simple as it always was. A coming complication will be PP requiring a SSN/TIN for all US accounts, other than that you should be fine if you use a new name (perhaps a corp), email, address, bank etc as stated above.

    as for the address, there is a simple trick to "change it"

    say your address sounds like that

    123 Nobody Street
    12234 Houston, Texas
    USA

    change it to
    Room 123
    Lot No. 123 Nobody Street(XI),
    12234 Houston, Texas
    USA.

    Given the IQ of paypal employees, I don't think they will be able to spot that.
