Different name on bank account


Different name on bank account

I have a PayPal account that's in my name and need to add a bank account. Currently my dad let me use his bank account, which is under his name. I understand the bank account and PayPal name must match. So is there a way to make a joint account or something with PayPal that grants this access so that I can be able to use my father's account even tho it is under his name? I really need a solution for this.


Re: Different name on bank account

Hi @Krazey_,


Thank you for your post and welcome to the Community Forum!


Unfortunately, the option to have a joint account is not available and we would not recommend using and adding funding sources that do not belong to you to your PayPal account. 


I hope this helps,
