[Question] PayPal, multiple email addresses!

Discussion in 'PayPal' started by cybercoder666, Feb 22, 2008.

    Greeting!

    I've a question about PayPal's multiple email addresses. I know that anyone can add up to 8 email addresses to a PayPal account. But, I just don't know what's the benefit of that.
    SEMrush
    Can anyone clear me about something? Suppose, I've registered with email address. Then if I add another email address as primary, then when somebody will pay me on my PayPal, in which address they should pay me? or ?

    Or both of them will work?

    Thanks in advance :)

    They can pay on both, but I think you will receive notification on only one email address

    I believe one question may not have been answered yet. The benefits of having multiple email addresses is that some people may have multiple online personality. It will definitely benefit some people who may maintain multiple websites.

    Say if I maintain two sites, two different directory sites. By being able to add one email address from each of the two forums, it would make it easier to identify where the payment is coming from and also with the payment acknowledgement sent to the buyer, they know who they are paying to. It would not be nice if you buy Site A and then you get an acknowledgement from Site B.

    As a customer, I included a few email addresses to my paypal account. Because I do act in several capacity, if I pay for something for my personal needs, I would use my personal email address to send payment and if I do it for my business, I will use my business email address.

    The other obvious use is for business and personal. You can have both a business and personal paypal account but the main idea is that can be used for your business and can be used for your personal transactions. Easier for taxes.

    Also, you can have incoming and outgoing payments.

    That's not true. You can log in with any of the email addresses which you added. If you use Email Pay then the email address you log in with would show up at the seller's payment receipt email.

    Both will work. Also if you remove one email and make a new account with that than that will also work. It helps if your payment program does not support Paypal email change.

    Both of them will work. It is useful if you have multiple websites selling stuff. Each site could use different email address.
