    I have a lot of my websites organized under one limited company (UK). Up til now they've mostly been adsense, but I'm looking to start taking paypal payments on a few of them. Here is my question: Is it possible to set up a paypal payment with a different name for each site, or do all payments have to be in the company name?

    In other words: Say my company is called ABC Ltd., and I have a flower site called flowers.com and a site called cupcakes.com. Both are owned by ABC Ltd., but I want people who make a payment to flowers.com to see "You made a successful payment to flowers.com", rather than "You made a successful payment to ABC Ltd.", and the same for cupcakes.com.

    You can't do that, people will be seeing "You made a successful payment to ABC Ltd."

    Alternatively they can be seeing "You made a successful payment to aaa@aaaa.com", but you can add only like 8 different emails in your paypal account if i am not mistaking..

    Technically, Paypal will tell you that you can have as many accounts as you want as long as youre legitimate and your info passes their verification check. Even before you ever have an account verified, you're able to have multiple accounts.

    I'm not sure if they have a solution for multiple accounts these days, since I was kicked off paypal a few years back.

    Thanks innozemec, how can I set it up to say "You made a successful payment to aaa@aaa.com" ? That should be good enough for now.

    you can have upto 10 alias, thats how you do it. you could setup multiple companies, or you could just set it up the way you want it, and put "part of the blah blah ltd company" as a sub note. As long as its mentioned somewhere you'll be ok.
