Free paper account vs Paid paper account

Hello all,

I’m looking for confirmation. I assume that the paid paper account has all the feature of the live trading.

When I sign-up for an Alpaca account, they gave me a free paper account. But later I sign-upped for a paid account. My question is more or less: can I complete ignore the initial free account credentials?

Do the Alpaca Live account credentials also allow for the paper trading option?
That is, the paid paper account is its own account and not the free paper account.


To clarify the question even more, when I first sign-up for Alpaca, the free account was paper-only. But now it appears to be a paper and live account restricted to the IEX exchange. And the paid account appears to be paper and live account both SIP exchange.

Can you confirmation that new view of free and paid account makeup?
