    Paypal has limited my account permanently.
    I'm planning to open a new one under my family member's name for making payments.
    The problem is the address & address proof's will be same as mine.

    Will that be a problem?

    Can't imagine why this cannot work. It worked for my family... we all have different PP accounts obviously.

    Well, you have to take one MAJOR detail into consideration: Taxes. Paypal reports to the IRS, so basically your family member must be aware of this.

    I`ve talked by phone with a pp support staff when I got permanently limited.. They said if any connection will be found to my account, this including family members, will get the owner's new pp acc permanently closed as well. I`m currently using a friends verified pp, and if you are planing on using your pp for a long time do the same.

    What did you do to warrant them closing your account?

    to all above asking what he did to get limited probably nothing, they are just the scourge of payment processers and do what they like all the time

    @OP I wouldnt open a new account with any details the same they will eventually link it and limit it

    thre are plenty of ways to get verified accounts and move funds about , its very easy really

    That's what I'm bothered about.
    I will not be using the account to receive any payments but just to send payments to clients.

    ifs its only to send payments then no issue really, you can buy a verified account for about $25 , then just use a vcc to add funds

    I think it's no problem, if any problem so you can open multiple verified paypal accounts but you need to have different person details and different credit cards or bank account number. It is allowed if you have resources.

    The best way to do it (and not screw over others) is to start a new company and open the Paypal account under the companies name.

    One rule you should never break: never piss of paypal. It's a PITA getting a new account and even if you do there are a million limitations on them that take away from their value. Like someone suggested above, the best way to do it is create a company and open the account on that name. You don't want to involve family and friends especially if in the US because you could get them in to some problems with the IRS (to who paypal reports to by law)

    The thing pp likes to do is close down all other family members pp accounts under the same address. Their reason is because their account is connected to an account that was suspended for suspicious activity. The connection is a variety of things, the same ip, address... They may not close them now but eventually. To open an account you dont want to use the same address, just a slight variation will throw pp off. Your name can be the same but its better to have a slight variation in all new info unless you plan on salvaging that account again. Even your banking info and tel. no. will need to be diff. I have done this successfully with at least 10 pp accounts, my experience.
