Hi All

I have set it up - but I want to have the money go directly to Sean

Ive just read that if I put seans email address in it will send him an
invite so he will be the only one able to withdraw funds.

I am waiting his acceptance but I think we can add to it without him
accepting -I HAVE NO WAY OF WITHDRAWING MONEY FROM THIS ACCOUNT.
