    Hi everyone,
    I'd like to know something from people who sell shoutouts here,
    When you sell shoutouts, it is usually via paypal right?
    But then they get an email with your full name to tell them that they have a payment confirmation, so how
    do you deal with that ? How do you keep your firstname and lastname private and still receive your payments,
    make payments requests and everything ?
    Thanks a lot,
    Have a nice day guys!

    Yes almost all sales are through Paypal, on PP you can make it a business and have your business name shown. I usually ask for their payment email and send them an invoice through paypal.

    Yes, they can see your name if you're using PayPal. One way I can think of that might help hiding is using services like 2checkout, plimus etc.

    Why would you hide it? Selling shootouts is a legit business, and don't be worried - nobody is interested if your fro, US or India... They just want to get their shootout and that's it.

    If you want to be serious, you have no reason for hiding your name to people that want to pay money to you.

    Kikerinka hits it right. Why would you even want to hide your name in the first place?

    If you use a business account they'll see your business name.

    hahaha yes very true, there is no need to hide your name in the first place. Selling Instagram shoutouts is very common and widely used by big account owners.

    yeah but when your account is getting big, you have more chance to encounter stalkers and creeps, so that's why putting your name out there is not a good idea I think

    In paypal you can add up to 5 email last time I checked, add one with a business name and use that one, it should work fine if you're paranoid about your real name showing up ;)
