PayPal – How To Disconnect PayPal From Vendor
I added a PayPal payment method to a vendor and later decided to close that vendor account. But there was no way to delete the vendor account. But I also didn’t want my PayPal permanently connected to that vendor incase they refused to close my account with them.
Turns out I can cancel the vendor-PayPal connection from my PayPal account:
- Log into PayPal account
- Click Help
- Type “What is an automatic payment and how do I update or cancel one?“
- Click the result answer
- Follow directions
An automatic payment authorizes a merchant to charge you whenever you make a purchase on their website without signing in to your PayPal account. This is something that’s set up on the first checkout with the merchant. The terms of the authorization will be available in your PayPal account.
Here’s how to find your automatic payments on the PayPal website:
- Go to Account Settings.
- Click Money, Banks and Cards.
- Click Set preapproved payments.
- Select the merchant.
