    I have an ex that let me use her name to have an ebay account, and paypal account. She doesn't care if I use her name for the ebay account, but doesn't want the paypal account to be open anymore, as it's associated with her bank account.

    How do I go about keeping this ebay account by adding a different paypal account? Would I need to have the same name for the new paypal account? Can I do a different address, or do I need to use the same?

    Any help is appreciated!

    You can just make a new paypal account and attach it to the eBay account, not too complicated. Just add the new paypal account to the eBay account and the old paypal account will no longer be attached to the eBay account. But you should know that all three accounts will be linked forever because of the order in which you made/added the accounts.

    Does that mean the original paypal account cannot be closed, only able to un-attach it?

    You can try to close the account, but in reality paypal keeps all your info and stats and what not that they have gathered about you and they never get rid of that info. In fact they will use past info against you if they can find a link.
