... and, each PayPal account can have up to 8 eBay accounts associated with it.

I don't know what you mean by a Paypal credit card account.



Paypal members may have 1 Personal Paypal account (for buying only) for each country that they maintain a residence in.


They may also have only 1 Premier or Business Paypal account for selling.


They may have 1 Paypal micro payments account.



Each account may have multiple bank accounts, credit and debit cards attached to it.

Yes, you can open a Personal account to buy with.

Attach a credit card to it for your best security.


Create a new eBay id too so your buyers don't see what you paid for things you may resell.

Never rely on eBay nor emails for accurate payment information.

Why would you want two? Just add your form of payment to the existing PayPal. Then, all you have to do, when you want to buy or use PayPal is select the desired form of payment you wish to use at the time.
