How to change primary paypal email address - full bank account number


Changing a primary email address in paypal is very important especially if your primary email is compromised or disabled.  This is the email address where transaction information is sent.  Unfortunately, Paypal has inaccurate terminologies regarding bank account numbers.

The message says that before changing your primary email address, the system wants to make sure that you are the owner of the account and thus it is asking your full bank account number.

The word "FULL" that was used is misleading and incorrect.  I have tried putting in the complete 5 digit branch code, the 3 digit institution code, and the 7 digit account number. This failed. 

Next I tried to input only the branch code and the account number, it failed again. 

I have to wait for one day for fear that after 3 attempts, the system might lock out my account.

So the next day, I just entered the 7 last digits of my account number, and lo, and behold, it is finally a success.


How to change primary Paypal email address:


1. Log in to Paypal
2. My Account
3. Profile
4. Add or Edit email
5. Add new email address
6. Go to your new email and press to Confirm
7. In Paypal, My Account
8. Profile
9. Add or Edit email
10. Select the (confirmed) new email address
11. Confirm
12. After it is confirmed, select this new email address
13. Make Primary

* At this point, it will ask you to enter the "Full" bank account number"

14. Enter the last 7 digits of your bank account number


Note:

Some people said they have succeeded in putting just the last 6 numbers of their bank account.


Conclusion:

Paypal should define precise formatting of the required bank account numbers.

How to achieve financial investment success with your financial adviser


- Save money regularly
- Setup your investment goals and financial objectives
- Establish an excellent relationship with your financial adviser
- Make sure your financial adviser understands your financial plan for the future
- After your financial adviser understood your financial objectives and goals, he/she should come up with a printout that outlines your financial plan indicating your financial goals, current financial situation, personality, age, degree of conservativeness, level of aggressiveness, and risk tolerance.
- Your financial adviser should come up with an investment strategy and investment portfolio tailored according to your financial situation, preferences, risks levels, expectations, goals, plans, and objectives
- Ensure a regular automatic investment amount taken monthly, bi-weekly, or weekly debit from your bank account
- Diversify. This is an essential investment strategy as it allows a reasonable asset mix of the types of investment for your portfolio allowing you to compensate for loses as well as take advantage of substantial gains
- Contribute regularly to your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) as its growth is sheltered from tax
- Regular updates, new information, monitoring and analysis of the performance and opportunities of your investment portfolio
- Ask for recommendations, solutions,  and strategy on how to meet and attain your financial goals and investment objectives
- Feel free, open and honestly bring out questions and concerns to your financial advisor and make sure you understand his or her answers, explanations, and solutions

How to stay financially healthy and stable (Do's and Don'ts)


Do's:

- Pray. It takes away your worries.
- Take care of yourself and your loved ones. Health is wealth!
- Love your job. Once you found a great job, you enjoy it, and extremely happy with your work, stick to it unless you have a far better alternative and absolutely sure it's worth it
- Save money on a regular basis and set it up automatically by direct debit from your bank account
- Save extra money for sudden financial emergencies and contigencies
- Be insured. Get life insurance, home insurance, auto, car (vehicle) insurance, and other necessary insurances to ensure peace of your mind
- Fund a registered retirement savings account
- Eliminate your debts. The longer they stay, the more painful it is for you
- Prepare for the unexpected
- Buy only what you need
- Control your spending
- Monitor and keep track of your income and expenses. Record daily expenditures so that you know exactly where your money is going
- Have only one credit card and keep your credit limit as low as possible
- Pay the full balances of all your credit cards to avoid those sky-rocketing interest rates which brutally rob you
- Pay your bills on time to maintain a good credit rating and excellent credit history
- Setup pre-authorized monthly debit to pay your bills and get rid of headaches and hassles
- Develop and implement an effective realistic monthly budget
- Set your financial goals on the short term (less than 5 years), intermediate (5-10 years) as well as long term (over 10 years) objectives
- Know your financial priorities. Avoid temptations
- Invest and diversify your investment portfolio
- Invest on things that appreciate in value over time (such as education, real state, property)
- Whenever you plan to loan or borrow money, make sure you have a working plan to repay it on time and thus minimizing interest rates and avoiding unwanted fees
- Seek the advise and help of financial advisers, counsellors, and financial experts
- Ensure that you have an up to date Will and Power of Attorney
- Do whatever it takes for the good of yourself, your family, relatives, community, country, and to the world. All good works will never bear bad fruit.

Don'ts:

- Don't cheat yourself and others
- Don't buy what you can't afford
- Don't spend more than you earn
- Don't use your savings to pay your bills
- Don't use money set aside for something to use it for another thing. Never do this!
- Don't take it for granted. Avoid those "Buy now, pay later", "No payments 'til next year" schemes and traps
- Don't borrow from one creditor to pay another debt. Don't use a credit card (or withdraw cash advance) to pay another credit card company

Relax. Time is your friend. Grow old gracefully with peace of mind! Enjoy the rewards of your hard labour throughout those years!!!
