    I want to start selling a small item online but need to link to a paypal business account to do so.
    I need to keep my identity anonymous and I don't want to register a business.
    Any ideas?

    Apparently I do as it asks for the "Legal Business Name" and the "Date the business was registered with the relevant authorities".
    I'm in NZ if that makes a difference.

    I'd probably just put some BS information in there - although it might come back and bite you in the butt if you ever want to go "legit".
