    Hey everyone,

    So, I wanted to ask you all, how do you usually receive payments while following black-hat techniques?
    I don't want to disclose a lot about me, and I tried PayPal payment page like paypal.me link. But still, people can see who and where you are from.

    Setting up a website with PayPal would be good idea, but is there any way, where I can share my email or a link and get paid.

    -Thanks in advance!

    I don't think, corporate and small business owners would like to pay in bitcoins. Most of them don't know about it or don't want to try out.

    With paypal, either you share your email or a paypal link people can still see your registered name and address with paypal (unless you fake that and have it verified with some virtual credit card). The only solution is using Bitcoin and other highly secured digital currencies.

    With higher security, practicability drops.

    There are payment merchants who will let the buyer enter a credit card and then they convert to bitcoins (take a few percent) and then send the rest to your wallet.
    If you are looking at being paid by a company which will only do bank transfers then you can look at getting a proxy account setup offshore. These do have higher fees though.

    If you upgrade your personal/premier PayPal account to a business one, in that case the identity can be hidden from the customers by editing your business infomation.

    Get a paypal business account then you can edit the details to your company not personal details.

    Chances are they aren't buying something that requires anonymity then. Paranoia is good to an extent but will cost you money if you take it overboard.

    Otherwise look into cryptocurrency
