PayPal is a website that allows you to send money -- to other individuals, community organizations, businesses or anyone else with a PayPal account -- over the Internet. Many businesses, small and large, use PayPal for sending and receiving invoices as well as payments from customers. Creating a PayPal account is as simple as signing up on the website's homepage. Once you've created your account, you can add up to 200 additional users.
Visit the PayPal website.
Log into the website using the email address and password you established when you created your account. You'll automatically be directed to the "My Account Overview" page.
Click the "Profile" tab to open the "Profile Summary" page.
Look for the "Manage Users" link in the "Account Information" column. Click this link to open the "Manage Users" page.
Click "Add Users." When prompted, enter the required information for the individual(s) you want to add to the account. This information includes the user's first and last name, user ID, password and access level. Because you are the primary account holder, you get to determine the access level for every additional user on the account; this individual will not be able to change his or her access level.
Click "Save" to complete the process.
Tips & Warnings
- The option to add multiple users is only available through PayPal Business accounts.
- Make sure you know and trust any individual for whom you set up a user ID and password for your PayPal account. Because you are the one adding this individual to your account, PayPal accepts no responsibility for criminal actions the individual may undertake while logged in.
