A dumb question, but I'm new to paypal.

When the profile page asks for your paypal emai, do they mean the email you used to sign up for the account, or a special email address you receive from paypal?

Thanks in advance.

paypal e-mail address required Aug 8, 2006

It is the address you want your prospective clients to use when they pay you through Paypal. You can have more than one, as long as you certify them correct through the Paypal process. You will be guided on this.

To keep things simple, I have given the email addresses printed on my invoices . As it so happens one of them is a gmail address.

So far as I know, Paypal donesnot issue e-mail addresses but invites you to choose yours. (which you can change quite easily, or cancel, later on.)
