How to Remove Bank Account from Paypal

Yes, you can unless the financial institution that holds your PayPal funds requires a specific login to access your account or if you have details of your accounts at multiple financial institutions in the same PayPal account and want to link them all into one. In this case it is not possible to remove just one of those accounts without linking another. This will result in creating a new combined balance which is shared between all linked accounts.

To remove an existing bank account please follow these instructions:

Go to “My Accounts”  from the Account Overview page  Log in to your account Click on  the  link  to  “Link a Bank Account”  in the “Bank Accounts” section.  Click  on the link labeled  “Remove this bank.”

I don’t know what is the link in this case.  Since I quoted it, some parts will automatically show up when you install a new browser add-on that brings to me web traffic (like http://www.facebookstatuses.com/):  “Link a Bank Account  from  the  Account Overview  page  Log  in to your account  Click on  the ” Link a Bank Account ”  link in the “Bank Accounts” section.”

Official PayPal language for this feature process:

  Add or remove bank accounts You can link as many as three bank accounts to your PayPal account and withdraw your PayPal balance as cash from any of them.  You can also add more bank accounts to your PayPal account  so  that  you  can  transfer  funds  to  and  from  several different banks in one transaction, or withdraw cash from multiple banks at a time.

This is not an issue for some people;   It won’t be if you are planning on making use of the full spectrum of services offered by this company, which include: fund transfers between paypal accounts as well as with external bank accounts, selling something on ebay or other internet marketplaces (such as amazon.) etc..
