Why can’t I upgrade my account to a business account?
Business accounts must be held in the name of a business, not an individual. This means an upgrade from a personal or premier account to a business account is not possible, unless you are a sole trader. If you are a sole trader, you can upgrade to a business account. For all other business types, you’ll need to sign up for a separate account using a different email address and bank account.
You can hold up to two PayPal accounts at any time in the following combinations:
- One personal account and one premier account.
- One personal account and one business account.
- One premier account and one business account.
