    Just a question for you guys. This is about paypal.

    Basically, my name is very unique (I think I am only in world with first + last name combination) and I have a small business. I don't have time to set up a business bank account so I am simply using my personal account.

    My issue is that when people send me money via paypal they always see my name. Now I was told you can't get around this unless you set up a business account, but I have an idea and I wanted to know if it would even work before I go through the trouble.

    First of all, can you accept payments via paypal if you do not have a bank account set up? If so, then can't I just make a new account, get all my customers to send the money to that account, and then transfer all the money from that paypal account to my actual account?

    Thanks

    Open another checking account. Buy a US paypal account and link it to this new bank account to verify it and remove any limitations. Have your customers send payment to this one and then transfer it to your personal account. Would this not work?

    will I be able to get rid of my name on this new paypal account though? If I open a new checking account, don't I have to use a different name to sign up?

    really, was it in the BST section recently? I will try to look for it.

    edit: do you mean VCC's? Because I heard some people say it doesn't work but I have no idea.. Or do you mean people are offering to use their actual credit cards? Wouldn't that tie every1's account to them? lol

    I hope it costs less than $10 to do this.
