I'm pretty sure you can use same company name as long as you use everything different including tax id number. If your PayPal account is based in the U.S., you can get as many EIN's as you want for same company.

If you have given them your TAX number and business registrations documents they are probably going to ban it too.

Who freaking works with Gaypal? You should be better off upgrading your payment processor. There are many out there depending on the area you reside.

I absolutely agree.
Ditch PayPal mate, that shit isn't good for serious businesses. They ban people left and right.

Interesting, unfortunately I am based in Europe.
I don't remember which registration numbers PayPal requested, unfortunately.
But I think they can only be changed under certain circumstances, if at all.

Yeah, PayPal is different in each jurisdictions so I'm not sure how things work in Europe. Your best bet is to create a new company and use completely different information to create a new PayPal account or just ditch PayPal completely and use an off-brand merchant services. They usually offer cheaper rate. But you won't get much sales without PayPal since most customers would want to pay with PayPal.

Yes, I was thinking about creating a new company. Only thing I am wondering is, what will happen if they ask for my personal ID or are they just asking for company related verification?

I personally have permanent limited account with my ID provided in the past but I created a new account and I provided same ID and it has been up and running for years to this day. As long as you use everything different, you can use same name.

Sounds good :) Do you have high revenues running on that Account? Or revenues above certain limits that trigger manual reviews?

Yes, I manage many business accounts. I won't mention how many but usually if you call PayPal business representative and tell them about what you're going to do with your account and register PayPal account together with a representative on the phone call, they'll treat you well. I recommend doing this if you're pulling a high revenue.

At the end of the day, there are tons of scammers abusing PayPal system everyday. So they get confused often between legit users and abusers. It's no surprise they ban legit users everyday.

Revenue doesn't really trigger manual reviews if you already have valid tax id added. It's more of disputes or suspicious payments that trigger manual reviews.

Well I am doing SMM business, so not a legit user from PP perspective. But it is masked and I rarely get disputes.
But nice hint with calling paypal. Maybe I will try that when creating the next account.

Hey Guys,
I need your help regarding PayPal Business Accounts.
My second PayPal Account got banned quite recently. Now I am wondering, will it work if I create a third PayPal business account with a new Bank account, a new phone number, new website, new IP but the same company?
Will PayPal check if the company already had a PayPal account? E.g. when I have to upload business documents?

Hope someone can help me :)
I can withdraw through my account for you......dm
