    Hi guys, got a question regarding PP for you.. I need to receive a payment of about ?600 from a client. I normally work with bank transfer but the client insists using PayPal. Now, I got a legit paypal account but don't use it for business transactions and I don't want to link it to my client. What I'm thinking of doing is opening an fresh unverified PP account to receive the payment, and once received send it to my legit PP account. Would this work? Or would PP limit my account before I could send the money? And would I use a personal or merchant account for this? Don't got much experience using PP so any help is appreciated ;)

    Cheers

    My PP isn't verified and I have used it for a few transactions with no problems. I do have limits placed on my account. $3700 sending limit and $700 cashout limit. I assume it would be the same for a fake account you set up.

    This is how PP defines each:

    Sending Limit: The maximum amount you can send before you must link and confirm a bank account or a credit card.

    Withdrawal limit: The maximum amount you can withdraw in a month before you must link and confirm a bank account or a credit card.

    Going by that info you would be able to but I am not sure. Just a guess on my part.

    Allot of misinformation in this thread already about PayPal. What you are wanting to do is called opening a
    stealth PayPal account. Do not accept $600 without being verified especially within first opening the account. You will
    surely get limited. You need to at least be bank verified.

    Again I just do not want to see a new thread saying you have $600 stuck in PayPal :)

    Cheers,
