    I have a MOST pressing issue that I hope someone can help me with ASAP. I have a stealth ebay & paypal account that I hadn't used for many months (only have 6 positive feedbacks) but just now happily I made a sale. But when I go to obtain the buyer's shipping information I see that things have changed a bit. Now when I click on the "Print Shipping Label' button to obtain my buyer's shipping info (address etc) it immediately takes me to the login page for my paypal account and once I've logged in it then directs me to fill out a UPS Account application.

    So here's my problem: By default paypal is inserting all of the personal information of the fictitious person that was originally used for my stealth paypal & ebay account and sooooo i have no idea what to do at this step in filling this out properly. Should I use my real contact info on this form (name/address etc) but if I do would paypal then catch on to it being a stealth account and close it?? Or should I use the fictitious entity contact info? But if I did then UPS may immediately reject it knowing that the street address is bogus etc thus flagging paypal. So thats my dilemma... I'm unable to acquire my buyer's shipping information until I pass this step. HELP GUYS! Thanx!!!

    I'd go with the fake info...
    Just say you live in a motor home so you have no real address! :p
    as far as UPS goes. They don't necessarily care about the return address being correct or not. As long as your sending it to a real adress they're should be no problem. I think; you don't even actually need to put a return address. But as long as you print the label with a correct mailing adress they will ship it. Just say your shipping it for a friend

    I don't think that PayPal/Ebay matches the information with UPS. I bet they're doing this to somehow take the shipping label thing out of their website.

    Whatever the case, is better not to put your account on risk.
