Does the activation key have to be purchased with the same e-mail as the account it is used in?

    When i buy the product, i need to use a different e-mail for billing, however my paralells account is in a different e-mail. Is it possible to use the activation key for another account?

    Indeed, you may use an email address for the purchase and another one to register your Parallels Key.
    To do so:
    1. Login to Parallels Desktop Application with your Parallels Account.
    2. Click on Parallels Desktop from the application menu bar on top of the screen; you may click on your Control Center window to see it. Select Account & License from the drop-down menu.
    3. Click Enter a key.
    4. Enter your license for the current version.
      If you are activating an upgrade copy, enter your key for the previous version. Click Activate.
