    I was using a proxy and signed into paypal, and got my account screwed up. If there a proxy service that paypal will not detect?

    Dont use a proxy, try getting a windows VPS server near your paypal account's location.

    A proxy always raises suspicions with paypal.

    Most if not all proxies and vpn does not work for paypal now. VPS is your best option now.

    From my experience as well as what our customers report, elite proxies (such as those offered by most proxy providers on BHW) seem to work fine with PayPal. I recommend setting up a custom Firefox profile (w/ the proxy + PP login saved) to ensure that you consistently use the same proxy for each PayPal account, and to keep the PayPal cookies isolated in that profile:

    I am using 2 paypal on VPS for about 1 years. Still I don't face any problem. So you can also go for VPS. I bought cheap Linux debian VPS from Edis. Their service is awesome and VPS is only 3.99 Euro per month.

    closedCaption is right, VPN is the way to go, as long as you get a STATIC IP, This is VERY IMPORTANT!! I use StrongVPN.

    I don't know what your trying to accomplish but I travel a lot and sign in from many different IP's even ones in another country and they don't have a problem with it. But if I sign in with a different IP (HMA) for example and forget about it the same day and sign in with another IP/VPN the same day they block my account because it looks suspicious being in new york in the morning and California in the afternoon.

    Using a remote desktop / RDP is your best choice for paypal.

    You may also use any of the RDSL services.

    You need to keep your needs to be very simple - you just need a good proxy tool FF addon for Firefox with dedicated private HTTPS proxy (NOT SHARED) running in that proxy tool for maintaining your own accounts (Paypal, Netflix, Hulu, etc.).

    That is what I suggested many others to do the same, and recommended them to go for the reputable private proxy providers here on BHW.

    Hope it helps.
