I think you can have more than one account although I never saw a need since you can add up to 8 email addresses to your PayPal account. I have 1 PayPal account that is linked to 6 different email addresses. It is pretty much the same as if I had 6 different PayPal accounts.

I was going to say the exact same thing about the number of email addresses. Then it would take a new bank account too.

Why not. I think there is no harm to paypal unless you are not joining as a ref of yourself. But its pointless to do that.

I think it is not allowed to have more than one paypal account, but there's no harm to apply for two accounts....As long as you don't verify your account with credit card, I think you can apply for more than two paypal accounts...

I think you are allowed to have several as long as you have different bank accounts for it.. thats what i know.

I cannot think of a reason why you'd even want more then one paypal account, after all you can add multiple emails, so even if you wanted to keep people from associating some payments with one email you could just send or recieve from the other. I am not sure if it is against policy though, best bet is to check out paypals policies, or ask papal.

I have never heard that you could have more than one paypal account. You can have more than one email address for your paypal account, but I don't think that is the same as two accounts.
