You can have up to 8 email addresses associated with your PayPal Account.  Any of the 8 addresses can be used to accept money.  

 

How to add an email address:

  1. Log in to your PayPal account.
  2. Click Profile.
  3. Click My personal info.
  4. Click Update next to Email.

I was wondering the same thing and hope this helps. If when you log in you see the new site, there is a "settings" icon(loooks like a gear) in the upper right hand corner between the bell icon and the "log out" button. When you click on it you should be redirected to a screen that allows you to change your settings. Scroll down a little bit and on your right-hand side you should see where you can add another email address to your paypal account. Once again, hope this helps and wasn't too confusing.

I realize that this is a bit "off topic," but, perhaps someone out there can help me.  I recently changed my internet "provider."  The change rendered my primary PayPal e-mail address null and void.  I went to the PayPal site and "clicked" on the "gear" symbol which presented, supposedly, a means of editing, or deleting the "old" e-mail address. IMPOSSIBLE!  The site indicates that I can neither edit nor delete my primary PayPal e-mail address.  Never mind that the e-mail address of record is totally useless/null/void/worthless/ancient/obsolete/non-functional, etc., etc.!

 

I tried to resolve this issue via telephone.  Sterile exercise!

Hello galensdad 

 

What you need to do is add your new email address first(coz obviously paypal cannot predict that your email is dead.

 

1. go to cog

2. click +

 

You need to make sure the new email is confirmed then changed it as your primary email.

 

then that's the time you can delete the previous email.
