    Hello guys ,
    do i need to have a company to be able to sell virtual goods using my paypal account on my website? Because i did setup a little ecommerce website using woocommerce and it already has the payment via paypal option but i want to know is it legal to sell using my personnal account .
    Thanks

    Yes you can use your personal account. Doesn't hurt to go ahead and setup a business one though for tax purposes.

    You can ask directly to PayPal in order to avoid freezing funds in the future.
