How to change from a personal to a business email address?

How to change from a personal to a business email address?

I created a free account using my personal email address, and now need to change this to a business email address, as well as upgrading the account.  Upgrading the account is simple, but i cant find how to transfer the actual account details to my business email account.  I need this for my upgraded subscription and invoices.

You can follow https://help.dropbox.com/accounts-billing/settings-sign-in/change-email to change emails. 

 

But you'll need a third one to swap in while you move them around 🙂

You cannot move things between accounts I'm afraid - they are completely standalone. 

 

All you can do is move the email addresses around so that the account you have upgraded is the one with your Business email
