    Default Is it possible to use same Paypal address for two different stores?

    Hey guys, I've been using the 'PayPal IPN - Website Payments Standard' for my decal site for several years. My wife had a great idea for another store based on a craft she makes.

    I've got the new store set up the same as I have my decal site and I was hoping to use the same Paypal business account for her store. All seems to work well with the exception of when the customer goes to pay. When they submit their order, the header of the paypal page shows Decal Depot.net .. Is there any way that I can change this to the name of my wife's store but allow it to remain Decal Depot.net for users on my cart?

    I know I could set up another account but I'm pretty sure you can't have two accounts tied to the same bank account.

    Any insight would be great. Thanks!

    Yes you can... the different ZC stores, and PayPal, will recognise which store sent the order and ensure the proper actions take place.

    You use the SAME primary email.

    One small drawback is that the client is taken to the same PayPal page, so if you have a custom header here, people shopping out of the second store will see the header for the first store.

    I get round this by creating a "generic" header, that lists all the stores relating to that paypal account. People don't get confused by this...

    Ahh.. I just checked it out and it allows you to use an image. I think I'll change mine to have the logo for each cart so that they'll see a familiar image when checking out. Almost perfect! :)

    Thanks!
