    I plan on selling backlinks, youtube views etc, but I don't know how with paypal.

    I want to do something similar to the sellers on BHW they have a link to the paypal page and it has the price they have to pay.

    Any help ladies and gentlemen?

    thanks,

    You can do that using merchant services, just login to your account and you'll find it there. I'm not sure though if you can do that with a personal account.

    If you want the merchant tools and buttons and stuff, it's a good idea to set up a business account. It isn't hard to have one of each; just have two bank accounts.

    EDIT: never mind I found the merchant services thanks to Junkfood00 (+rep)


    Do I have to be a registered business as well?
