    I have a PayPal biz account.

    Is there any way to change what people see as the biz name when they are checking out?

    For example if a person buys ITEM A they will see "MyBusiness LLC" on the checkout page.

    If a person buys ITEM B is there any way to show a different name (example "BOBS LLC") on the checkout page?

    Basically I'm trying to sell someone multiple products but I don't want them to realize they're both coming from me.

    * I believe the answer is 'no' but I'm not 100% sure.

    According to PayPal I'm allowed one biz and personal account.

    * If I set up a personal account am I able to hide my personal information (I'd only be selling digital goods) so the person cannot see it?

    ** Oh sh't if I'm selling something I think PayPal would require me to upgrade to a business account.


    Sorry for rambling. Any one have experience/recommendations on how to accomplish what I'm trying to do?

    The answer is still no, you can accomplish that task only with multiple biz accounts.

    Is there a way to have multiple biz accounts without running in to a problem?

    Have multiple businesses. Each business is entitled to its own PayPal accounts, as long as they are all actual businesses.

    Can I have multiple PayPal accounts?

    Yes. You can have one Consumer account and one Business account.

    I read this as you're only allowed to have 1 but perhaps you're correct. It makes sense. I'll reach out to PayPal.
