    Hello, recently my paypal was limited because apparently my paypal was linked to another paypal or something, anyway, that isn't the important part... My question is I'd like to add a donation button on my site again but I'm concerned if paypal flags sites that has been limited before, or should it be fine to add a donation button on a site that previously used a paypal button from an account that got limited?

    Yes, they also flag certain words, as do some credit card companies. Or so I have been told on numerous occasions.

    To answer your question, play it safe, new domain.

    Yes, we're dealing with this problem now on a fantasy sports website. The first account 3 or 4 years ago they shut down hard and fast. I opened a new one two months ago, waited and nothing happened. As soon as I registered a new app they clamped down and required more info about the owners of the company.

    The solution is to create a new website that does not connect to your flagged domain in any way and send the visitor to a hidden page on the new website when they hit the donate button. PayPal will only see the new website's traffic while the old one sits in the dog house. The hidden page on the new domain can be styled exactly like the bad domain's website since it will never see the light of day.

    This is correct, they flag certain domains. I had an issue a year of two ago exactly like this.
