Can I Use a Secondary PayPal User With my Information While the Original User Is on Upwork?

I have a verified Payoneer account but withdrawing the funds to my bank in my country might cause some issues. PayPal is not available here, but my friend lives abroad and owns a PayPal account. He is also a freelancer on Upwork.


My question is: If he creates a secondary user on PayPal with my email address and my information, will I be able to use this on Upwork to receive payment via my friend's account while he uses his primary PayPal email to receive funds to the same account?


I understand that the Upwork email and the PayPal email must be identical to avoid problems, so does this work? I don't want to go through with it at the risk of being flagged (be it me or my friend), so I decided to ask first.
