Associating My Next of Kin PayPal Account with HubPages

    Hi Hubbers,

    Is it possible to associate my next of kin PayPal account with the HubPages ad program? Thanks for your kind reply.

      As far as I know, I do not think this is a problem, just update the Paypal email address and it should be fine.

      I don't think so because Adsense only allows one account per person which is paid to one bank account and you may mess things up trying to add someone else's paypal account to the HP program.  It would be best to ask the team about this, but I'm betting you can't do it.  Let us know what they say, will you?

            Yes, my friend lives in town and since I live in the jungle I use her paypal and bank account now. All you have to do is go into your account page and switch the paypal info.
            I think you can switch adsense too by going in and changing the settings. I have not done this.

              I don't think you can change the Adsense information because this payment goes directly to your checking account and is only in your name.

        Here’s a message from Paul Edmondson: “I believe you can associate any PayPal account that you have the information to.”
        And here’s another one from PayPal concerning this same issue: “We appreciate your effort contacting us about receiving funds. Let me assist you. As long their account can receive funds and their country allows the receiving funds, then you can send them. If you want you can give us the country so that we can check if they have the receiving feature.”

      Here's the answer.  You can only add names to a Paypal account if it is a verified business account.  You cannot add names to a personal paypal account.

      PayPal does not offer joint accounts however, if you have Business PayPal account, you can allow other users to access your PayPal account.

      Here's how:

      Go to the PayPal website and log in to your account.
      Click "Profile" at the top of the page.
      Click "Manage Users" in the Account Information column.
      Click "Add User".
      Enter the user's name, a user ID and a password. The user will use this ID and password to log in to your PayPal account.
      Check the box for each of the privileges you're allowing this user.
      Click "Save".

        As I understand it all he wants to do is add his next of kins paypal account to his HP account. All he would have to do is go the account pages, earnings, and then change the PayPal address. The HP payment will go there.
        Of course, I could be wrong. It would not be the first time, and definitely not the last!

          I wondered about this as well. I want to use my wife's email and her PayPal account. I think I just go here and change this to her email right? I should still receive hp payments to that email no matter what address I use.

              I think it worked because you changed where the money would be sent.  You did not add another person's name to your Paypal account.  Two different things.

          The post I put up above is directly from Paypal...so I don't know how you did this.  I only know what they said in their TOS.  Being a cautious person, I tend to do what people like Paypal tell me to do because I don't want to create a mess for myself.  You really should ask the team about this one.

            AdSense is probably a very different thing with PayPal. As far as HP ad program payments, I should just simply be able to change my email address. Wouldn't AdSense work the same? Both HP and AdSense payments are sent to an email address. So say I hate my email because I get 8 million spams a day. I should be able to get a new email address weather it's "mywifesname@whatever. Com" or if it's "mustardhotdogsketchup@whatever. Com" the payment just goes to PayPal via whatever email address you have listed. After that it doesn't matter what you do with the payment. I'm afraid to try this with AdSense though now after reading everything on here lol.

              Adsense pays directly to your checking account.  HP sends payments to Paypal.  Two different things.  Yes, you can change your email address with Paypal and Adsense but this is not the same thing as adding another person to your Paypal account.  You can only do that if your Paypal account is denoted a business account, which those of HP writers generally are not and which have other costs and requirements associated with them.  Also, you cannot add another person to your HP account or Adsense account either.  It boils down to something very simple:  one person, one account for each type of account.  You can change emails but you cannot add other people to your account.

                DrMark1961posted 8 weeks agoin reply to this

                Do you know if it is possible to make Paypal the bank account to which Adsense payments are made?

                1. TIMETRAVELER2 profile image98
                  TIMETRAVELER2posted 8 weeks agoin reply to this

                  This is from Adsense:

                  Depending on your payment address, the following payment options may be available to you: Checks, Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT), EFT via Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA), Wire Transfer and Western Union Quick Cash.

                  Directly deposited checks seem to be the safest and best (at least in my case) but paypal is not on the list, so I guess the answer is no, you can't use paypal for this purpose.

                    Makes sense. When I was getting AdSense payments, it would show up on my PayPal pre-paid account  (direct deposit) so therefore my "bank"

        This information comes directly from the HP Terms of Service

        You acknowledge and agree that you will not publicly disclose Your payments or Earned Balance (including any subcomponents thereof) from the HubPages Earnings Program without prior written consent of HubPages.

        Matt was incorrect when he stated in another post that you can reveal your earnings but not your CPMs or CPCs.  You are not allowed to publicly reveal any of it without written permission from the team.

    As far as I know and as TT2 says, you cannot change Adsense payment info. But TT2 you are free to change your HP PayPal info. It's in no way related to Adsense.

      Are you saying that even if you closed a bank account and opened an account at another bank that you would not be able to change it?

      1. lobobrandon profile image90
        lobobrandonposted 2 months agoin reply to this

        Adsense? You can't change the payee name. You can't send your adsense payment to your friend unless the friend has the same name too.

          Under "add a payment method", there is a slot for beneficiary ID. Is this the name of the bank account holder?

            You had best check with Adsense on this one because I thought that would be how I could add my husband but it turned out that this was not the case.  There's something in their guidelines about this.  Be very careful that you don't accidentally mess your account up trying to do this.  Marisa used to know the details but she's not here anymore..

              Okay, thanks. I really do not want to change it but was just looking into how to do so.

        2. TIMETRAVELER2 profile image98
          TIMETRAVELER2posted 2 months agoin reply to this

          Even then you can't do it.  I wanted to add my husband to my Adsense, etc and was unable to do so.  He would have to have his own Adsense account.

        3. TIMETRAVELER2 profile image98
          TIMETRAVELER2posted 8 weeks agoin reply to this

          For Adsense, you can't even send the payment to somebody else., same name or not.  I've looked into this in the past.  One account holder.  One bank account for sending payments.  Now, two people can have a joint bank account if they like, and the payment can go there...but only if it is sent in the Adsense account owner's name.  For example, I have a joint bank account with my husband.  My Adsense payments are directly deposited to that account.  If I should die, my husband would have to remove my name from the account.  Therefore, all Adsense payments would stop.

      2. TIMETRAVELER2 profile image98
        TIMETRAVELER2posted 2 months agoin reply to this

        That is a different situation.  You can change your own information as needed...you just cannot add another person to your account.

        1. TIMETRAVELER2 profile image98
          TIMETRAVELER2posted 8 weeks agoin reply to this

          One more thing.  If you have a business account with Paypal, you can add names, but having a business account entails having a Tax ID, etc.  I don't think writing articles on an internet site qualifies as being a business.  Furthermore, I'm not sure if Adsense would give payments to a business rather than to an individual.  This is a really important issue that I'd like to know more about because I'd love to be able to have my earnings transferred to my husband in the event of my death.

    2. TIMETRAVELER2 profile image98
      TIMETRAVELER2posted 2 months agoin reply to this

      Yes, but the OP is talking about adding another person to the account.  I don't believe you can do that.
