    HI,

    Can i open multiple paypal accounts and then transfer the money in one main account which is linked to my bank account. Is it legal and does it violate any TOS of paypal.
    And i mean different paypal accounts not different emails linked to one paypal account.

    Any help is appreciated.

    You are allowed to have 1 business / 1 premier account. Maybe i'm wrong.

    .

    It's against PP TOS .....

    So the answer is TWO.

    You could do it with like different family/friends, etc with different SSN and I'D, etc

    before you can send a paypal balance to another paypal account, you need to be bank account verified, or receive a debit card
    hard to do if you are already setup with one :)

    It's my understanding that you can have as many PayPal accounts as you want, so long as each one is linked to a different bank account.

    Home Page:
    You can have as many as Paypal account and access from same IP, as long as they have different name, credit card/bank details. confirmed with Paypal. However, you should not try to misuse their TOS to receive money from personal account and transfer it to your business account, etc. If you did so all your accounts will be limited.

    so in theory, the best way is to set up new accounts using your family members bank accounts. (with their agreement of course)
