    Hi, some people told me that's impossible, so I just need confirmation :)

    I have a wordpress woocommerce online shop. In my idea, i wanted to redirect the checout page to another domain name, and enable paypal checkout on the new domain. So paypal doesn't know my real website url, neither the products I sell.

    I don't explain with details because I wanted to keep the thread short, but if you need more informations, I can put it in comments.

    Thank you all

    I did that, worked for months but after you receive around $2000 someone from PayPal team will manually review your account and they'll find out

    That's possible, just make sure you don't get many disputes cause that might get your account flagged

    yes, thanks, I provide great customer service, and I sell cheap items with high marging, so in case someone is unhappy, I refund before they open a dispute

    I've heard horror stories about PayPal freezing accounts just because it seemed like they were in a bad mood. I read a post awhile back (not on this site) about someone's paypal account that had like 50K in it getting frozen for over a year while things got sorted out. It was an account of a verrrry honest business, not doing anything shady at all, and PayPal just decided they didn't like their product or something weird. PayPal is very political, and can be a bit of a wild card. I'd suggest only having an amount of money in your PayPal that you wouldn't starve should it become frozen.

    I would seriously advise you to find another way.
    Because PayPal will, in one way or another, get involved.

    You can use Autobuy websites like
    https://rocketr.net/ [ Not my website ]

    Put the products there and from the wordpress website redirect to the new rocketr.net url , the transaction will be safe . But keep in mind that PayPal will investigate the account if there are many transactions with high amounts.

    very easy
    use jotfform or any embeddable form and they will not see where it is coming from as only the form is called when the payment goes
    make sure to put the names of the products to something else or they will see it
