Adding a Paypal account

Hi,

 

I have been trying to add a Paypal account to my account but haven't been able to do so. The email of my Paypal is different from the email of my upwork.  Every time I press on "not your Paypal email address?" (photo 1) it takes me to help center (photo 2). So what should I do?

 

Thanks a lot in advance.

 Either change your Upwork email address to match your PayPal email address

OR

Add your Upwork email address to your PayPal account (you can have up to 6 email addresses on any one PayPal account.

 

 

Where to add email of Paypal account in upwork email address?
