Change Account information

Sorry to bother the group but the website isn't working on this topic.
I mistakenly entered my own name on a autosomal transfer as I was going to administer the kit and of course I would really like the real persons name on the kit. Can I change it or will have to reupload the DNA and pay yet again for the upgrade?
Thanks for any pointers.

You can sign into the kit and change the name. The only thing you can't change is the sex. FTDNA has to do that.
