    I would like to sell some BH services with some privacy. I have personal and business PayPal accounts but would like to hide those identities from my customers if possible. I am not concerned about being completely anonymous to avoid legal repercussions. This is just about not having my legit business associated with my BH stuff.

    I have been playing on PayPal this afternoon and it looks like they are doing all they can to ensure your name matches the bank account name and hence will be shown.

    I would prefer to offer PayPal. Is there a way to do so privately?

    Yeah, I'd found that one.

    Was a little hardcore, for people more after total anonymity. Plus a little US centric.

    I didn't mention before that I am in Australia. Would love to hear of any experiences some other Aussies have?

    I read in another post that you could try LiqPay. I've never heard of them but it sounded like they're the same as PayPal & anonymouse enough for what you want.
    I have tried to anonymise my PayPal accounts when using eBay & i never found a way. I was like you, i have no fear of any legal repurcussion, i just didn't want people turning up to my home address.

    Here is the issue, every single transaction online can be traced. Unless you are doing a face to face money transaction where no record can be created expect that somewhere is going to be a record of your transaction.

    1. Moving money around is not easy and takes faith it will be where you left it.
    2. Visa gift cards that you buy at the mall are a good place, I do know you can recharge them without creating more of a trail but again that is a cash transaction if you can and leaves a lessor level of record.
    3. Never use western union ever.

    for total anonymous payments simply have your customers go to buywmz and email you the codes. dump the codes in a WMZ account and withdraw or convert them to liberty reserve at around 5% fee for bulletproof anonymous cashout.

    perfect money is pretty good too.
