Can I have two PayPal accounts?

PayPal has long won the title of the most widely used payment method in the world. No online marketplace can function properly without using PayPal. It’s especially useful for buying various online games and other similar services.

Many users don’t stop with only one PayPal account and register their PayPal secondary account. That’s useful when you need to separate your personal and business money flow or just to protect your online privacy. Officially PayPal only allows having 2 accounts - a personal one and a business one. However, you can always buy a virtual number from Tiger SMS and have as many accounts as you need.

Those who already use PayPal know that the full verification process includes a bank card. However, as far as a phone number is concerned, Tiger SMS can help you. A virtual number for PayPal 2nd account only costs several cents and gives you the possibility to keep your real number away from PayPal.

Mind that if in your country PayPal is not available, only using a virtual number from another country is not enough: make sure you use the platform through a VPN service or a proxy server.
