How to Find a PayPal ID

Your PayPal identification, or ID, is the email address that you registered for your account with. This ID is also the information that you use to make and receive PayPal payments. The term "PayPal ID" is unfamiliar when you first sign up because your PayPal account does not display this title within your account information. If you do not remember the address that you registered with, you can use PayPal's method of finding your ID.

Step

Go to the PayPal website (see Resources).

Step

Click the "Problem with login?" link underneath the "Log In" button.

Step

Click the "I don't know what email address I used" button on the page that appears and then type up to three different email address that you possibly used to create your PayPal account.

Step

Enter the displayed CAPTCHA code and then click the "Continue" button. PayPal brings up your registered address. You now have the option to click the "I know my password and want to login" button to sign in to your account, or click the "I need to create a new password" if you do not remember this information.
