One PayPal Account, many product lines

I have complained that there was no way to use a single PayPal account properly for different product lines. In fact, that statement is too broad:

I just noticed that I can pull a report inside PayPal based on which email the money was sent to. For instance, if I had two product lines that were connected to the same Paypal account, I met give on the name, paypal@businessA.com  and the other: paypal@businessB.com.

Inside PayPal, there is a pulldown for reports that allows you to pull by email address! So you have a fairly easy way to track payments by product line.   The other limitations are still there. For instance, if you take a customer through PayPal, you can't have the page customized for whichever division of your company or product line they are buying from.  So the Paypal landing page and receipt have to have on them: Thanks, from businessA and businessB.
