    I want to buy US stealth Paypal and do Shopify with it. The reason is I don't want to compromise my real Paypal. I like separating income streams.

    Also, because I'm selling to US citizens, I think US Paypal is safer to use than other international Paypal. (I could be wrong)

    So my question is, is it worth to buy US stealth Paypal for dropshipping? Or should I just go to nearby PC bang to make new fake Paypal for free?

    If you're worried about receiving too much money from one PayPal account, don't be. ENSURE that you send the money as a business transaction, instead of Family and Friends.

    PayPal stealth accounts will be fully verified, and it will be very hard to confirm an address by yourself and remove limits; so if you're going to buy a PayPal stealth account make sure you buy the best ones or not bother.

    You will need a PayPal account with limits removed, and address verified etc. VBA, VCC... It could cost anywhere betwene $200+ but I wouldn't know.

    Regardles, good luck on your Shopify endeavours!

    You can make new PayPal, that's not the issue, if you know what you're doing. The verification will be the issue (ID and proof of address, linking bank account/CC), without verification there are only so many things you can do with an account.
    Also, for Shopify you'll need at least a Premier PayPal account or a Business one, Personal won't cut it.

    I heard @secondeye has a solid reputation when it comes to faking documents.
    My biggest problem is Should I risk my family Paypal (currently have 1 active, 1 dormant for long) or buy US stealth Paypal and completely separate my income stream. If my active Paypal gets limited because of dropshipping, I can't pay to 3rd parties for my current project expense. Another potential danger is I am not sure Paypal allow opening second account after they close my account for whatever reason (If they track personal id in their database)

    Well, for Shopify you'll be needing either a Premier or a Business PayPal account. Everyone is allowed to have one Personal/Premier and one Business account, so if you already have a Personal account, you might as well just create a fully legit Business one. Each account must have its own financial information, e.g. you can't use the same bank account for both.

    Or don't use PayPal at all. Shopify is compatible with 2Checkout and with that you can accept PayPal payments.

    I'd only use a stealth PayPal account, if there is no other solution.

    hi @HoNeYBiRD, i was starting my shopify store earlier and stumbled upon the need to open a business account. the thing is, the store i'm going to use is not going to have a valid business name, it will only be an online shop.

    can you clarify the use of 2checkout? you said it can accept paypal payments.. does it mean i dont need to make a business account with paypal?
    hope my question is clear. thanks!

    2checkout can accept paypal payments. You don't even need a paypal account. 2 checkout makes payment to payoneer.

    I heard 2checkout doesn't allow dropshipping. However I'll just try faking documents pretending I'm owning my product

    You don't even need a PayPal account, if you go with 2Co. :)

    So if I go with 2CO how long they will hold the funds if I get my first sale?
    Also I have to prepare separate account to buy from Aliexpress, right?

    Well, i guess you need to figure those out yourself or look for the answers on the forum. I don't do Shopify, i just know that Shopify supports 2Co and 2Co is always an option when you don't want to deal with PayPal, yet you still want to accept PayPal payments.
