Many Tophatter sellers use one paypal address for many different shops and some even share a paypal address with other members of their family/household. So, in the past we’ve allowed multiple accounts using the same paypal email.
We’ve discovered, however, that some sellers have been using multiple accounts inappropriately to dominate listings - and so we’ve had to modify our policy. From now on, every paypal email address can be tied to only one account.
For those of you interested in maintaining different shops within the same account or sharing a paypal email with other family members, we’ll be introducing a feature in the future that will allow you to create different seller profiles within the same account.
In the meantime, we’ve published our multiple account policy here.
If you are using multiple accounts currently, we’ll contact you to manage the merging of the accounts correctly.
