I Ebay and do PTC sites. I was wondering if anyone knows if you can have two accounts through PayPal. I use two different email accounts. I would like to keep my money seperate from the two. Any suggestions would help. Thank you.

THere are ways to ask pay pal that. It will be more accurate than anything we can tell you. But I have heard you canĀ“t. Anyway, if you earn from two different places and you want to know how much you made wirth each, you can go to your paypal account and see the amounts eBay sent (for instance) and add them.

You can have two PayPal accounts, one personal and one business or premier account. Any more than that, or having two of the same type of account or a business and a premier account, is against their terms. See here for more details:;jsessionid=JvsNL3jMxfLCWCpnGhTWPJ6pch8QmnphJ9G0TThGhW8L2VbvQnrt!-924476804?locale=en_GB&_dyncharset=UTF-8&countrycode=GB&cmd=_help&serverInstance=9005&t=solutionTab&ft=searchTab&ps=solutionPanels&solutionId=163079&isSrch=Yes

You may indeed have two PayPal accounts, one Personal and one Premier or Business account. Just to let you know, the only reason PayPal have those rules because you may only have your Social Security Number on one Personal and on one Premier or Business account. It will be the same with financial information, you may only link it to one PayPal account at a time.

You cant do it and it is against paypal policy.Paypal is one of the secure payment processor.Dont expose your paypal password to any one.
