    I have come to the conclusion that nobody at all buys anything from a site with an individuals personal Paypal name listed at checkout.

    So how do I change my PP name without having to send papers to paypal?

    I am not scamming or anything I just dont want to send very important papers to paypal

    If you upgrade from a personal account to a business account, then go to profile you can add business information and then that's what customers will see.

    I thought you could hide your email anyway? Or maybe I have business account and didn't realise...

    Yes, you can hide your e-mail and use a merchant ID or whatever (at least I think you can, I have a business account too). But if you have a personal account people will still see your name as being some person and not some business.

    Upgrading your account with your business name and customize the checkout form with your business logo and etc will help you .

    I would also recommend you to assign at least a virtual credit/debit card to your business account. It's generally free and you can apply for it easily. It gives you more control and security over the financial transactions with almost no extra hassle.

    or use an e-junkie shopping cart with your personal or premier paypal account, if i can remember well, the e-junkie shopping cart can be customized too, so the buyers won't see your name, if you look around, you'll find coupon codes for e-junkie, so you can use their service for free for maybe a year or so
