FAQs

Can I remove PayPal notifications directly on Facebook Messenger?

Facebook Messenger lets you mute notifications, but you will still receive them. Log in to your Facebook account and click the Messenger icon at the top right corner to mute notifications. Hover on the PayPal chat, click the three horizontal dots icon and click Mute notifications. On mobile, you will have to long-press on the chat name.

Why is my PayPal account linked to Facebook?

The accounts are linked if you use PayPal as a payment method for Facebook Marketplace, ads, or to send money to contacts. To completely unlink your account, click the down arrow on the website at the top right corner and go to Settings–>Settings and privacy–>Facebook Pay (this option might say Payments depending on your location). Click the PayPal payment method and click Remove account.
