    Hello BHtters,

    what are the risks having 3 paypal accounts or more? one business account, one personal account (the two allowed) + another business to keep for "Risky" like selling product replicat, Offer, stuff...
    Is there a risk of losing them all? The 3th Paypal business account would be under a different name and different bank account. Is there a risk of losing all the accounts once?

    It's not risky at all, paypals terms and conditions allow it.

    thanks for your answer, but don't they associate the "Risk taking" account with the others? And they state in TOS that we have the right for only 2 accounts, no more I'm I wrong?

    I'm not entirely sure if they would ban your other Paypal once they realise it belongs to you, but I would assume that if they ban you from Paypal, that means you're not allowed to own or create any more accounts.

    I'm pretty sue this question was next, so I'll post it here as well.

    Thanks bro! sounds very logical! I think the best bet is to make a difficult to trace 3th "risky stuff" account. Different IP, different device...

    I have 4 PP accounts in 4 family members names for years, and they are all operated from a single home PC, as and when the need arises. No risk at all, unless you want to play against the rules. Then anything might happen... you may lose all the accounts because PP may consider you to be a scammer of sort.

    All the accounts carry the same home address but different (and real :)) bank accounts, obviously in our individual names. PP never had any problems with the accounts.
