    Hello,

    I'm starting an ecommerce website so I upgraded my old personal paypal account to business one, I never had any disputes or anything that would make my account look bad

    I put my personal adress as my business adress and my personal info, and then my account got restriced because I need to upload copies of my Buisness licenses, but I don't have an offline business and no licenses though

    I called their support 3 times, explained everything ot them and they said they will resolve it, but they are not doing it for 10 days already

    Has this happened to someone already? How did you resolve it?

    I would open a new account but I'm scared, what if the new account gets restriced after a while with money stuck on it and my shop will also go to hell

    In order to hold business paypal account you have have a registered company and send all required papers.

    If you do not own one you should go with personal or premier.

    Regards

    API key in order to run online store is available at personal accounts as well, no need to be business entity.
