How to Use One Bank Account for Multiple PayPal Accounts

Updated February 21, 2017

PayPal does not allow users to use one bank account for multiple PayPal accounts. This is for security and verification purposes. But users are allowed to add up to eight different e-mail addresses to a PayPal account. As long as each e-mail address is linked only to one PayPal account at a time, payments for up to eight different e-mail addresses can be deposited in the same bank account.

Log in to your PayPal account. Click on the "Profile" tab at the top of the Website. Click on "Back Accounts" located under the "Financial Information" category.

Click on "Add Bank." Enter your bank account number and the bank's routing number.

Add more e-mail addresses to the account by clicking on "My Account" at the top of the PayPal site. Click on "Profile."

Click the "Email" link located under the "Account Information" section. Click on "Add" and enter a new e-mail address. Click on "Save." PayPal will send a confirmation message to this e-mail address

Log in to the email address and open the confirmation message from PayPal. Follow the instructions to confirm the email address you wish to add.
