I am wondering if a person can have more than 1 PayPal account. Maybe this person have a Personal Account with PayPal and also a Business Account with PayPal. Is it possible ? Would PayPal ban such accounts? Or, if a person can have several PayPal Personal Accounts under different email addresses ? Hope someone can shed some light on this. Thanks.

According to PayPal you can have 1 personal account and 1 premier or business account, but each account has to have separate email addresses and financial information. Another option would be to have multiple emails/cards/bank accounts under the same account.

Thanks for the advise. I didn't know that we can have multiple emails under the same account in PayPal.

Yes. it is permitted. 1 personal account and a Premium account is permitted by paypal. i think both have to verified with seperate credit cards. you can confirm this from the paypal site itself.

yes if you do it this way.. i had to set up a second account since my friend had sent me money to an email addy i didnt have an acct with and so what i did was i have both with different email addresses (a must) and they cant be attached to the same bank account so one is connected to my savings and the other checking and i dont use the same credit cards as back up for each.. your not suppose to have more than one but i was kind of stuck doing it because of her mistake but it works out good because all my mylot and survey earnings i have go to the savings acct one and my ebay stuff to my checking since the checking one is upgraded to take credit cards and so it charges me a fee per transaction where as the one to my savings is basic since its just surveys paying me so there arent any fees

eventhough am not really aware of the rules of paypal regarding this i don't see any reason why they would hinder one person to have more than one account. it's not like a bank that gives an interest to the money in an account that's why banks require a birth certificate to account for the person himself. as long as paypal doesn't encounter any problems and as long as the user would be able to remember his multiple account names and passwords then i'd say go and get another account .

yes you can have 1 personal and 1 business though you can only use your credit to verify once, its either personal or your business account. so you need another credit card again to verify the other one. i tried it myself and too bad coz i link my two credit card to my business account and when i try to open 1 personal account and use the other credit to verify the system didnt allow me. though bank account can still be use for both account.

All you really need to do to be able to verify your other account is remove one of the credit cards from the account that has two of them on it. Once you do that, you'll be able to add it to the unverified account. I hate how PayPal won't let you add a bank account to more than one account. I have a joint account with my husband, and I can't add it to my PayPal account because he's already added it to his account. Really stinks.
