    Does PayPal block site's from using PayPal as a checkout method, after for example changing the email that the money will be send to. because if got more than 200 transactions and it ask me to upload ID but I'm not going to do that.
    so I just want to change the email and then when I got another 200 transactions change email again.

    I have never heard of PayPal blocking accounts simply because they changed their email address, but just to be sure you might aswell make multiple paypal accounts.

    I dont actually mean changing the email but changing the paypal account, that after I hit 200 transactions and my account gets blocked that I just create a new paypal and use it for the store. but I am afraid that they maybe will block my site.

    Ah I see. Well, I really don't think PayPal would block your site, as as far as I know (correct me if i'm wrong!) PayPal doesn't monitor the sites their API is used on as there are thousands and thousands of sites using it.

    If you ask me I would say it's safe to change accounts, but again, I could be wrong.

    You'd have to get new API keys etc.. But I think when you apply for the API key, you have to give them your site, so I don't think you can have multiple API keys to the same site.

    Although you might have a point there, I think the only way to find out is to try it out ;-) But I wouldn't worry, I really don't think they will ban your site.

    Okay, wanned to hear the oponion from other people because, it's about a few hundred $$$ a month. Actually had my first 1,000+ dollar month. 6 months ago I was making a total of 60 a month. this is my first real site/busniss.
    And I will never loss the believe that it is possible.

    So to the person that is reading this and has never made anything online you are me 6 months ago.

    It's 200 transactions AND $20,000.00 a year; not just 200 transactions so if you are under 20K a year there should be no issue.

    If it's a "real' business and you've done a good job so far, why not give your ID and be legit?

    If you intend on keeping the website and receive payments for your products/services, there's nothing wrong with a verified paypal account.

    And as he only makes 1K a month, he should probably be fine. Else, just change your PayPal account. I really don't think they will suspect anything.

    Oh yeah indeed just read it again it's 200 transactions and 20k.

    I earned the money from a site that sells modded accounts for online games.
    Next to this If also try to make another busniss/site but still haven't suceeded.

    As I said above it are modded game account which is again the law if you sell them. because they lose money off of it.

    I just read some more about PayPal blocking accounts that one of the thing they block accounts for is high amount of trasactions so hopefully they wont block me. Because I created a new account and from one day to another it will start getting 50 dollars a day.

    50$ a day is (in PayPal terms) nothing. Now, if you would get 5000$ a day, you would probably arouse PayPal's interest.

    From my experience, I've learned that once you use a PayPal account for receiving money from multiple website, and have the PayPal account blocked, they will also add the websites you integrated with your blocked PayPal account on some sort of a blacklist, and if you try to use another PayPal account on those websites, they will also request supplementary verification on the second PayPal, too. This is what happened to me...I cannot tell you for sure that it will happen to anyone.

    Considering the low amount of money ($50) that you receive on a daily basis, you shouldn't be worried right now.

    What country is your PayPal? I see you are located in NL. The 200 transactions or $20k rule is not valid for all PayPal countries, but it's definitely valid for USA.

    To conclude, I really don't think you have to worry with the amounts of money you're making right now, so go on with whatever you are doing.

    However, once you scale up and you start to make crazy amounts of money, you might want to look for another solution. (for example - although I don't know what their rules are - you could try using Stripe as a payment processor instead of paypal.)
