Very hard to switch between business and personal accounts, when opening the app via a link, you never know which account you are in. There is no option to use your PayPal balance to pay for items only your bank account. App is very hard to navigate overall, No option to add links to websites or purchase agreements. Seriously considering closing my account with this company. They just don't seem to care about being user friendly or helpful to their customers.

Hi - I'm sorry you're having trouble. To change profiles, you'll want to select your Profile Icon. Your Profile Icon is in the top left corner of the Dashboard. Then, scroll to the bottom of the page to select Log Out. You can review billing agreements at the bottom of the Wallet page, which is the far right icon on the lower navigation bar. -Meg

Horrible. PayPal will not allow you to transfer your money out to a card. You can not use it to buy anything on Amazon or any other store. They locked me out of my account completely for several days after I tried to transfer money out. Pretty much all of the benefits and services offered by their competitors (cash app, chime, etc...) are not offered by Paypal.... Customer service had me on hold for over an hour and a half... The app is simply out dated. Time to cath up with the times PayPal.

It would be nice if I was able to select my preferred credit card for payment. Since this isn't an option that I can find anywhere on your app. I have cancelled 2 orders after double checking the payment method. I'm assuming I need to delete all but the preferred credit card in order for the one I want to use to work. Plus, you offered me a $20.00 reward credit which is great. But with that it doesn't specify that I received it upon placing my order. That is not a convenient method, IMO.
