When you send cash on paypal, does the reciever only see your email or does he see your entire name?
Is there any way to avoid this?
Ha i asked exactly the same question not so long ago
If you upgrade to a business acocunt and put you fake name as the business name, then this is all they will see. And for address, just put something very vague.
Been fine for me for ages and haven't had any issue so far. By the way, i live in the UK may be different where you are.
thanks buddy for the response, but what's a business account?
can we change it for like 10 minutes while we send the money and then change it back again, or will they always see the name of the guy updated?
You can't change from one to the other and back. A business acct has different terms than a personal acct and you can use a different "business" name and hide you real name
Business account is the way to go. You can have multiple pay-to email addresses and only the name associated with the pay-to email address is shown, which could be a business name. You cannot switch back to personal once you go to business.
Do u need a tax id to open up a business account with paypal?
ive opened up an ''address as present'', or ''address as extra'', which says I can have products sent to, but i'm guessing that's only for presents i make to other people...
Separate names with a comma.
