  • Two Paypal Accounts?

    Can I have two Paypal accounts, let's say one account for donations to the site owner, and another to the tech staff?

    I have read the thread about adding a new Payment API but I didn't see anything about the possibility of duplicating Paypal and having two different payment accounts.

    Thanks in advance.

      Well that is nice but not what I was looking for with this question.

      Specifically The owner gets subscriptions for access and donations.
      One of the users wants to sell an item through the web site and wants to use Paypal also.

      So I would have two paypal APIs in the Payment API Manager, one for the owner's payments with his email, and another for a single priced item from the user. Eliminating the need for the site owner having to send Paypal payments to the user.

          Does anyone have an answer to this question yet?

          I already have one PayPal account set up on my forum for paid subscriptions but I want to be able to have the option of sending different types of subscription payments to another PayPal account. This means I'd have X-membership payments going to my X-PayPal account and my Y-membership payments going to my Y-PayPal account.

          Is this possible somehow?

            No, not by default. Doing so would require you to duplicate the payment api for paypal, adjusting it to work as a second account.

            For help with that I recommend you search or ask on
