Having Trouble Setting Up PayPal Account

Australia
July 12, 2008 6:26am CST
Ok,my partner and I share a Paypal account, he is the primary account holder and I have secondary access. Though I'm the boss of the money in there!!!!! Just thought I would point that out! As I have been on Mylot for almost a year now, and have enough earnings to request a payout, I thought it was time I finally got round to asking for one, so I went to setup the paypal transfer thingy! lol. Hey, what else do I call it? ok, so I followed the payments and earnings etc and entered in the relevant info, but when it comes to putting the actual paypal details in, all it asks for is the paypal email. Um, which email, as both my partner and I have separate emails and both are on our paypal account. It can't be as simple as just putting an email address, because that would just be my private email anyway. So, those of you who are in the know, could you please give me step by step instructions on how to set up my Mylot account so that it connects to Paypal. Pretty please, with sugar on top, but don't ask for any cherries or cream, they are mine!

You can add 8 (eight) email address with one paypal account, so you sign up new email account with gmail or yahoo or AOL no problem and add this new email address with your paypal account. But you must verify your paypal account with your bank account or paypal card for achievinng maximum benefit from paypal. If you or anyone like to open new paypal account no problem. You will add your new paypal email address at mylot then will be no problem. To open new paypal account can do it easy way from this link: https://www.paypal.com/us/mrb/pal=79SXQHC9Q3N3A

The bank account attached to my paypal account is my partners, though I'm now thinking of adding mine too! hehehe, I earned the money, I want! lol. I just used my every day email with paypal, and have been using the service for a while now without any problems, it just got me that all they wanted was the email address and nothing else. Still, it should be all sorted by now.

I have a had a paypal account for quite some time now since I primarily use it for my sales on ebay and purchases on ebay. When I set it up on ebay you had to link the two websites but also it only asked for my email address that is linked to the paypal account. When I signed up for mylot it also asked me the same question, which email address is linked to paypal and I gave it to them. I would say in your case, since there are two emails addresses and two users on your paypal account, I would use your husbands email address, since you mentioned he is the primary name listed on the paypal account. If you do have further questions and would like to ensure payment to your paypal account, i would contact mylot as well as paypal to just confirm the correct email address and I am sure they will both be able to answer any questions you have.

I have to say, we did work it out in the end, and it should be working now, but I feel so silly. Um, I have used paypal to hook up to other sites, so I should have known. I'm going to blame it on preggy brain! lol.

hi dear when i started to connect to paypal i connected to my credit card account. and when it was finally done, there appears a code 4 digit code before the words paypal printed in the line where paypal debit is shown . paypal debited 1.95 dollars to my account . and i waited for the credit card statement and when i recd. the same i completed that part and so the account was connected. and as far as the story of email is concerned yes you have to furnish one and only on that basis it will be connected.

Thanks for your response. Sadly, not elligible for a credit card, they are pretty strict about who they give them to these days in Australia and they consider me to be too high a risk. My partner and I worked it out together, and hopefully, it worked. Only got to wait another couple of days to see if it did.
