    A friend of mine helped me by using her name to start a new ebay and paypal account. This included her phone number, address, and bank account. Thanks to her, I was able to build it back fast no problem, with plenty of great feedback and 100% feedback rating.

    She's a-ok for me to have this account, but she would like if I could change the address and bank information on both. Name, even better.

    Is there a way to do this without raising any flags? Could I change her name into a business name? Maybe change the phone number as well?

    Any tips, information, or help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    You can change all of that information except the personal name on the account. You can always upgrade the Paypal account to a business account though, and your buyers would see the name of the business when they're sending payment. I hope that you're using your own bank account though. Otherwise taxes will get extremely complicated.

    Don't change too much information at once. Do one or two things and wait a few days before changing something else.

    baby steps so their system doesn't flag you for suspicious activity.

    For taxes, she just needs to 1099 you at the end of the year for the amount you earned. I did something similar to this, and it's fine.
