      Can I Open Multiple PayPal Accounts?

      I have two business accounts with Paypal. Recently, my friend told me that it is against Paypal policy to open multiple Paypal accounts. Is that true? If so, what should I do now?

      Yep, your friend is right. According to Paypal policy, an individual can open one personal and one business or premier account. If an individual opens multiple business accounts, premium accounts, or personal accounts on Paypal, Paypal reserves the right to freeze the accounts.

      Here’s the difference in the PayPal accounts, just so you know:

      Personal Account: This account is useful for individuals who want to purchase online, transfer money online, and receive money online. It comes with limited features.

      Premier Account: This account is useful for individuals who have high transaction volumes and need special features that are not available in a personal account.

      Business Account: This account is useful for businesspersons that operate under a company name. It has various features like quick settlement of customer issues and multiple logins to the Paypal account.

      Take a look at their website – it’ll tell you what you need to know: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=p/gen/terms-outside.

      I suggest that since you’ve opened two pay pal accounts, which is against Paypal policy, you should close one business account as soon as possible.

      Hey, that’s good advice, but I wonder why Paypal allows people to open multiple accounts if it’s against policy.

      I guess it’s difficult for paypal to find out if a person is opening a first or second account with them because most people give a different mailing address, email address, and bank account number for each of their Paypal accounts.

      I used to have two business accounts with Paypal. There was no problem until Paypal realized the fact that I had multiple Paypal accounts. My accounts were frozen and I lost some money.

      Most people open multiple paypal accounts in order to link them to their multiple ebay accounts. Most ebay users are not aware of the fact that you do not need a separate Paypal business account for each of your ebay accounts. You can easily link two or more ebay accounts with just one Paypal account.

      You’re probably right. So how can I add my second ebay account to my existing Paypal account?

      Red, adding a second or subsequent ebay account to your paypal account is easy. You should first login to your Paypal account.

      • Click on “my account” button
      • Click “Profile”
      • Click on auctions
      • Click “add”.
      • Add your ebay user id and password.
      • After entering the ebay user id and password, again click add and the second ebay account would get linked to your paypal account.

      Yeah, I’ve done it - It takes 24 hours for your ebay account information to get updated on your paypal account. No sweat.

      ebay users need to remember that to link two ebay accounts with the same Paypal account, you should have different user Ids and email addresses for your ebay accounts.
