    Hi There,

    I am just starting out and am going to be selling my own product on my own website.

    I'm going to use paypal for the time being and use my own personal paypal account as i am not setup as a business yet and want to see how well it all goes first.

    My concern is when someone buys the product from me will it show up with my personal info ie. name, address, phone number?

    If you guys could let me know how you set paypal up so people don't know all your personal info so I know if I am doing it right, that would be great?

    Thanks in advance for your help.
    Gary :)

    Yeah, are you a legit seller or a scammer type seller? Why don't you want people seeing your real information? You can get a virtual credit card or prepaid credit card to verify your account with a different name, and get a PO box for a different real address just incase paypal limits you and you need to send in proof of address. Also, people sell phone number forwarding services where you can get a different phone number that forward to your real number.

    Thanks for the quick replies.

    Let me first clear up that I am a legit seller and not a scammer.

    The solo reason I am asking is because I have made the product under a pen name so then with the paypal account being under my actual name they do not match up so I am thinking that it could cause problems and cause refunds.

    Hense why if I can hide all my details and just have the name of my product instead it will match up and not confuse them.

    Hope this helps,

    Gary

    My paypal account actually is a business name and we have our personal name as well as a business name on it. Maybe do something like pen name industires?
