    I've been blocked from a merchant from buying from them, but I really need to continue buying. Is there a way I can change my PayPal name, or somehow remain anonymous? I'll be using a proxy for the purchase.. but I need a method of making the payments look like they're coming from someone else.

    I think merchant just block ur email. U just add new email and set your new email as primary. Then opt out the old email.

    Good luck!

    I was also wondering about this. The thing is, the merchant hasn't automatically blocked me. They just stated they will be monitoring my activity and have the right to cancel orders etc. So I'm guessing they'll be checking for my name too?

    I come from a land down under..
    Is it a business account? If not, upgrade. You can change your business name with a business account and you can also change your delivery name/address by adding a 'gift address' and input any name/address you like. Also, as pointed out above, add another email and make it your primary.

    You can't change personal names.. I've tried. You can change business names, email, and contact info though!

    It is easy enough to change business names? Or is it manually reviewed? I'm going to be needing to change my identity every month or two.

    I finally got it! Once you upgrade to business account, there's a new option to change the name without having to provide proof. Now I can change my email and name each month and remain anonymous! Thanks a lot guys, you've just saved my monthly revenue. Rep and thanks for you all.
