Scenario 1: Create an account with a business email address (recommended👍)

If you own a separate business email address, you may opt to use that to register an account with us. 

We highly recommend this method as you will be able to create a functional account instantly, and would not require us to do a manual override. If this is not feasible for you, proceed to scenario 2.

Scenario 2: If you do not own a business phone number/email address, fill up an application form for us to evaluate your eligibility for a second account.

Our support team may help to override the account limitation depending on your eligibility (refer to eligibility criteria below). This process may take up to 7 working days for processing, but we will do our best to expedite each application as much as possible.
