Anyway to convert old Paypal account to get it to report ?

Hi I looked around to see if there were any threads for this but found nothing.

I know it's been talked about to death but I would love if my old account could somehow
get converted to start reporting. My AAO is just over 5 years.. not the greatest.

 

Thoughts anyone? TY

Greetings,

 

Paypal has many different types of accounts.

Which type are you referring to exactly? PP Credit, a PP Credit Card?

 

If the type of tradeline is hidden, such as PP Credit, there's no way to "convert it" and get it to report.

Companies either report or they don't.

OP, as @Pikaboo-icu mentioned above, unless SYNCB decides to start reporting of the PayPal Credit (previously known as Bill Me Later), then it will remain as a hidden, non-reportable tradeline.

Well, technically there is a way to get Paypal Credit to report - if your account goes 30 days late it will report as a negative tradeline Smiley Sad

Paypal Credit is still hidden   and it was 180+ Days late... it just never shows up even if defaulted.... 

 

If they sue you or send to collection agency  that can show up
