    Basically, you can randomly fill, but paypal will do a background check on your SSN and every piece of info you submitted on that page. DO NOT underestimate those info and what you are filling into, even if you get your phone number incorrect, they will limit your account and remove all the credit cards and bank accounts linked to that paypal account.

    You shouldn't try to con PayPal with fake info, it will bite you back. Register a company and make your account 100% genuine and legit. PayPal abhors fake data and one way or the other, they will find the authenticity of your information.

    I will register a company. However, if the government asks what I am doing with the company and how it brings in revenue. What is a proper answer to give them if I do blackhat SEO, porn affiliates and perhaps some other fun things?

    Why did u make a business account anyways? U should go with Premier if u dont have a business running.
    U can just tell them your are an independent seller and accidentally choose Business account.
    In this case, be honest with them. Negotiate with them in a good tone on the call, see how it goes.

    It varies between countries. Try consulting a business attorney.

    Initially the account was personal but later on I switched to business due to not wanting to show my real name when I send/receive money to the account and also it looks more professional with a business name rather than my name.

    I've emailed paypal about this issue for 1-2 weeks ago. Of course I didn't even get an answer. I hate the company with my whole heart. So there's no additional fees when going to a Premier account? I'm forced to use my real name if I switch to a Premier account, aren't I?

    I currently earn money online from different sources. All money are either going to my PayPal or Payoneer account. I don't trust any of those services to store my money. I want them on my bank account or on a company's bank account which is owned by me.

    Any tips very appreciated.

    you should make some stealth paypal accounts, and then spread your earnings on them, so you won't rise the limit, they won't ask you for documents and then you will be safe. what is your country ?

    No way I am dealing with that bullshit. It shouldn't even be a problem for me to register a company which I receive the money to even if it's blackhat related. Right? I'm somewhere in Europe. In EU also.

    I have a paypal business account in EU. You dont dont have to be incorporated. I sold gaming bots and did affiliate.
    I used my Real name and real data and a fake company name that it will be shown on the invoices. Just lift up your limits and you are good to go to windraw your $$. I have it from 2 years already and no problem with it.

    I didn't mean to be aggressive towards you. Thank you for helping. I just don't see your option as an alternative for me. :)

    So PayPal is not doing background checks on the company? What happens if they do and it turns out I've been lying to them? Do they have the ability to freeze all my money?

    Because registering a company can be a pain in the ass. Also I have to declare taxes and it adds paperwork which I don't really want to spend time on.

    I would never use PayPal if I wasn't forced to.

    I have been in contact with PayPal and you don't need to own a business in order to have a PayPal business account. You do have to fill a lot of papers which is a pain, but you don't need a registered company. They don't do any background checks on the company. You do however need to provide proof of identity, address and a few other simple documents have to be filled.
