It is critical that your business is able to accept online payments in order to secure online sales and process payments quickly and securely. PayPal can help your business offer online payments to both PayPal account holders and customers that do not have a PayPal account. Because PayPal offers your business the ability to add up to eight email addresses per account, you can send and collect payments from customers and send the payments to multiple employees or departments.

Log in to Paypal using the primary email address for your company.

Click on the "Business" tab, then the "My Account" tab, then the "Profile" link.

Locate the Email heading and click on the "Update" link. Click on the "Add" button.

Enter the new email address to associate with your account and click on the "Save" button. An email will be sent to you to confirm the addition of the new email address.

Check your email account for the email from PayPal and open the email.

Click on the "Confirm My Email" link in the email from PayPal.

Enter your PayPal account password and click on the "Login" button. Your new email address can be used immediately.
