Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

           I already have one gmail account or email address linked to my PayPal account which allows for me to receive funds.  At this point, I have a second gmail account which I prefer to also link to my PayPal account.  With that point in mind, what will be needed to link my second gmail account to my PayPal account?

            Any shared tips will be greatly appreciated.

            Thank you.

Hi,
If you are planning to add secondary email for notification you can just add the new one and make it as primary.  But you will receive notification only on one email address.
You Explained have multiple email addresses. Explained below.

Hello and Good Afternoon,

        Thank you for your information and links.  Just to make sure I understand what to expect, are you saying that I will be able to receive PayPal funds on both gmail accounts, but, will only receive notifications of receiving PayPal funds on the primary gmail account?

Hi,
When you create a Paypal account, Paypal account will be tagged to your email address.
Email address is just used to login to Paypal account. It doesn't mean your Paypal funds are receiving in your email address. Paypal will send notification of funds received and sent to your email added as primary address in your Paypal account..

Hello

            When setting up a business account, a secondary gmail address was used during the registration process.  Will that offset the sending or receiving of funds seeing that it is not the primary address of my PayPal account?

             From my conclusions drawn, which could be in error, I will still be able to carry out business transactions, but, will receive the necessary notifications through my primary gmail account.

Hi

       I have added a second gmail account to the profile of my PayPal account.  Unfortunately, I get a message from PayPal indicating my second gmail email address is unconfirmed.  How may I resolve this issue?

       Thank you

Hi
When you add an email address you will receive a confirmation email with a link to confirm.
Open your email and open the hyperlink to confirm the newly added email address.
