    My name is John Smith. I would like to sell cheep e-books through my site www_example_com. But the problem is that I don't want the buyers to see my real name John Smith on their receipts, but rather my site name www_example_com. How to organize the payment, then?

    It's definitely not possible with Paypal - they put my real name on the customer's statement.

    I checked paydotcom_com and Clickbank, but they don't explain such things. Clickbank mentions a "nickname" and "payee" in the sign up form and says that "nickname" will be put on buyer's statement - that's great, but how about "payee"? If they put payee on buyer's statement, then maybe I could put David Black as "payee". But then they will send the money to David Black's account and it will be rejected by my bank, because my bank account is for me - John Smith.

    Is there any payment/affiliate service that would allow for such one-sided anonymous account? So that the payment service knows my real name and sends money to my real bank account, but allows me to put my site name instead of my real name on customer's statements, so that in some sense I stay anonymous?

    How to achieve this?

    You mean merchant account with name "www_example_com"? (because this I mentioned above should appear on buyer's statements).

    Yes if you have a merchant account. You can get it to say whatever you want most generally.

    Sorry I don't understand. Can you please send me to any site which offers this?

    Additionally, I have a question about paydotcom_com . On their signup form they have fields:

    Username (The username will be your PayDotCom affiliate ID and will be visible in your links. Please choose carefully!)
    Name (Your full name)
    Make Checks Payable To (Name exactly as it should appear on checks.)
    Address etc...

    Which of these 3 fields will appear on buyer's statements/receipts/invoices?

    You can just upgrade your Paypal account to a business account and you can list your domain name as the business and it will not show your name on the transactions.

    g2s.com is a great company to get your merchant account.
    The customer service is awesome, and I did manage to negociate 5% fees.
