I would just like to know what prepositions are used with the term login account.

Do you have a login account for Paypal?

Do you have login account in Paypal?

Do you have a login account on Paypal?

Or is there a better word that collocates with the term login account?

  • What effort have you made to find an answer?

The forms I generally hear (or see written, in on-line communication), in order from most-common to least-common, are

Do you have a PayPal account?

Do you have an account with PayPal?

Do you have an account on PayPal? (this only occurs with on-line establishments, never with ‘brick-and-mortar’ establishments)

Do you have an account for PayPal?

I do not ever recall encountering ...account in PayPal?, and ...account at PayPal? only occurs, in my experience, when PayPal is replaced with a ‘brick-and-mortar’ establishment (e.g., a retailer or bank).


I think "login account" sounds redundant, and I agree with the other answers that suggest "PayPal" should be used as a noun adjunct. Use either "login" or "account" by itself:

Do you have a PayPal login?

Do you have a PayPal account?


A login is a name that you enter in order to be able to use a computer system.

So, when you say "a login account," I only think about an account of some name/password/code. But you are talking about a person's account, aren't you?

I guess what you are trying to say is "Do you have a PayPal account?" or, in case you need to know if someone has the password, "Do you have the password for the PayPal account?" (a particular password for a particular account).
