PayPal showing Starling Bank wrong name


#1

I have added Starling to my personal PayPal account and it is showing as
Yorkshire Building Society.
I have added Starling sort code and my account number

Anyone experienced this?


#2

@Beth_Abbott could you look into this one for us? Thank you!


#3

Just checked mine and it says:
STARLING BANK LTD

Odd that yours is wrong, I would usually think that they go on Sort Code to which as far as I know, everyone’s is the same right now?


#4

I tried it 3 times !
It’s not a problem, I can wait until it’s sorted, my Nationwide FlexPlus is used with PayPal

It is strange though

Beth and I chatted today, she’ll try to find out the cause tomorrow. I too see Starling Bank Ltd and so it must a nuance somewhere. We’ll update you as we find out more.

Many thanks


#7

How strange? Mine added perfectly. Hope it’s sorted out quickly for you.


#8

Strange one my paypal shows as starling bank. Could be an issue PayPal’s end.


#9

Am using this as a reminder to set up a PayPal DD and of course to test this out for myself.


#10

This is how mine shows in PayPal


#11

Same as mine, you’re not allowed to screenshot the PayPal app on Android so I couldn’t include it.

I have just tried adding Starling Bank to PayPal again, and it has added OK!
I did use the correct sort code each time, but this time I used laptop NOT my phone
Anyway it’s sorted now
