Can I have both a personal and business account?

 On my personal account it says upgrade to business which I want but I don't want to lose my personal account. I will be using the same banking details but a different email address.

 

Thanks for your help!

Re: Can I have both a personal and business account?

Yes, you can have a different PayPal account for personal and business. You'll just need to make sure you have separate email addresses for each like you said.

Technically, you can add the same bank account to different PayPal accounts, but this is not recommended. You should keep personal and business bank accounts separate the same way you would the PayPal accounts. Business bank account should be hooked up to business PayPal, and personal bank account to personal PayPal account.

You can add a bank account to one PayPal account at a time.  However, if approved, you may be able to add the bank to a second PayPal account.  You will be informed when linking the bank to the second PayPal account if you have been approved.
