    Hi I have a verified paypal account with a different name. My payoneer account has my real name on it. I want to attach paypal with my payoneer so that i can withdraw funds locally from paypal.

    Is it ok if i change my paypal name to my real first and last name?

    My paypal is 2 years old

    Thanks

    Wouldn't hurt to ask for Payoneer's support feedback.

    Don't attach the payoneer card. You got a US Bank Account with the payoneer card right? Add that bank account to paypal. So that when you withdraw funds, it will come to payoneer.

    I've done exactly this in the past.. however there is always the small possibility that Paypal will bend you over at some point! They love exploiting every chance to "freeze" your account and keep the funds...

    What i am asking is that the name of the holder of payoneer account is different than the paypal account holder name.
    Now when i attach payoneer us bank account with paypal. Won't paypal think it fishy that it is attached with a bank account that has a different account name(ther has to be a name written on usa bank of payoneer?)

    Again, I've done EXACTLY this before. Paypal and Payoneer name were different etc... nothing happened, but I only had that running for 3 or 4 months.. so I dunno if they would have limited it later on

    Potential to have your account limited is exceptionally high. Be very careful
