    Whatsup guys?

    I know another one of them Paypal thread. And yes I have use google to search for an anwser. also searched BHW and didn't found anything.

    But I have an paypal account that is not right with my age. I thought my paypal as legal. but it says i'm 18+ But i'm still 17 for an half an year. I am getting 1000 dollar from someone to do advertisements. And I don't want to recieve it on my paypal.

    I want to make an Student account. But I have 2 questions.
    1 Can I delete my old account. I got my dutch bank account attached to it. and make a new paypal student account and link the same bank account to it?
    2 If 1 is possible and I have a student paypal account. My mom will make one for me. Is it possible to recieve money from clients directly and recieve money from affiliate programs directly to the student account? That is necessary.

    Please anwser me.

    Thanks!

    I have no idea what the difference between a student account and a normal account is when it comes to PayPal, but IF it works exactly like a normal one, then option 2 is possible.

    I read up about it a little, your parent must make it for you since you're underage. If your mother makes the account for you, and it works like a normal PayPal account, you can receive the 1000$ without linking it to a bank account. But, it makes everything safer to have one connected.

    Can't you just connect your mother's card to it and promise not to use it for shopping? ;)

    Thanks. She doenst have a creditcard. I will make a debit card for myself when I turn 18

    But can I delete a PP and make a new one with the same bank number?
    And would it help to tell PP that a friend of mine made that acc for me and i discovered it was illigal and i wamt to go legal? (Thats a lie, but a good one in my opinion)

    You might be able to update it yourself (the DoB I mean). And if not, then just ask them to change it for you, can't be too hard. Use Google if you want more options.
