    I know that paypal is pretty much strict on site related to this kind of service. And of course I will not use my paypal account on my site. But I want to know if this is safe, like I use paypal to receive money from clients with email or fax. Client will never see my paypal account on my site, after I received money, I will approve their accounts on my site. Is that safe for my paypal account?

    You can use this method for getting payment, there is absolutely no problem. But also there is a workaround to use PayPal in your site, check out by reading all their terms and find the loop holes.

    Thanks. I have read all the TOS, didn;t find anything specific about escort, But look around internet, there are many cases. So I think it is too risky to use my paypal account on my site. Anyway thank you very much.

    I would be careful. Make sure you transfer your $$$ out often from your paypal account. Mine got froze with 30K in there and I had to wait 6 months to get it back. I think they love to do that to make interest on your money. That's the only explanation I can find. For that particular business was 100% legit and they still froze the money. You should be good to go but take your money out often!

    PP can screw your account when you are running it legit so deep down you know the answer to your question.
    For peace of mind look for another solution.
    You will probably be OK for the time being but you don't want to push your luck and try to be ready if something does go wrong.

    I just searched google for "adult payment services" and it looks like there are a number of options.
