Is receiving payment via PaySafeCard anonymous also for seller?

    I read a lot about using PaySafeCard is an anonymous option for the buyer. But is it an anonymous option also for the seller?

    So the buyer does never know who the seller really is? I am based in Europe, and anybody can find out who's behind a company here if I use a normal merchant account. So unless I will set up a company structure in various jurisdictions (which costs a lot of money), I was hoping that using PaySafeCard would give me, the seller, some level of anonymity... So, as already asked, is PaySafeCard anonymous also for the seller?

    LoL they are registered in the UK and licensed, they have the exact same obligations as any other financial service in Europe. They will report you under CRS regulatives. Who ever say it is anonymous is not telling the truth.

    I should be a little more specific. They are can report me as much as they like to any authority. What I am looking for is specifically anonymity towards the buyer. If you have a normal online merchant account somewhere, you need to have a very public terms and contacts and whatnot on your website with the name of your company and address, and the buyer also gets info about you in the receipt after purchase.

    Can I avoid having the buyer know who I am using PaySafeCard (at least not in a simple way)?
