You're going to have to bear with me because I am seriously having one of those days, where I'm thinking whats the sodding point. You Just Might As Will Give Up Completely If You Are Not Allowed To Use Paypal To Accept Payments from customers.

I was just in the process of setting up two websites, one was going to be a coaching website and another was going to be sort of a deal blog/website

My Paypal got permantly shut down two years ago. So I can never use them ever again. However alot of membership scripts, affiliate based comission compays (JVZOO) uses paypal..

I know there are merchant account but most of them wants to charge something per month to use. But as yet I don't have any members etc...

2checkout now doesn't allow you to sell ebooks/videos that you have got resale rights to..

I know I need something that will even still accept payments from people using paypal.

Btw I am based in the UK

I'm just having a nightmare at the moment.. I want to get things finally up and runnning by the weekend.. But now I'm feeling not a chance..

    For the same reason he can't use 2Checkout, I think: it seems he just has "resale rights" to whatever he's hoping to sell.

    You might be able to use "ClickSure", though, Byron, if you're willing to do business with them: they're based in China and seem to accept absolutely anything and everything that other networks won't touch for a variety of ethical/legal/other reasons (which may be why they've had their own PayPal account limited).Could be worth investigating, though? Good luck!

    Hey Byron,

    I know that feeling of "I HAVE to launch my site by X date"

    Sometimes for me it is so intense, it shuts me off to "answers"

    It's like, there could be a tidal wave coming, but I've just gotta get my site "Live"

    There are ways around your situation..

    What about a paypal account using another member of your family's name..

    I recently opened a paypal account here in the UK (2 months ago) and managed
    to jump through all their hoops to get it verified so I could receive payments with no limits in 2 working days..

    Hang in there mate and NEVER give up..

    Are you saying your account was not only shut down but you are also permanently banned from PayPal?? Is that even possible? You can't open another account?

    Yes - it's quite common, Joel.

    Do you have any friends who could become your business partner?

    Of course, finding someone you trust can be problematic, but if you do find someone there are various plus points - Two sets of ideas, accountability and your partner being able to accept Paypal.

    Byron, I think the best way is to use family members account for this reason. I personally know some people who are doing it because for one reason or another paypal have banned them.

    Why don't you ask someone trusted who doesn't use PayPal to create and account for you? I think you won't have any problems because of that.

    So what. Cough up the $50 and write it off as a business expense.

    There fees are higher than many, but they handle all of the tax BS for your affiliates and they accept paypal. So it's well worth it.

    They pay on time all the time, which I can't say for many other affiliate programs.

    And they have a very large pool of affiliates.

    My wife has got a unverified paypal account at the moment. We can only buy stuff not accept payments at the moment. However to start accepting payments we would need to upgrade to either business or premier account.. But I am wondering if we do that will paypal limit the account because of my account got closed down 2 years ago?? Will not be using the account to sell on ebay at all. Just on my two websites...

    I asked my mum ages ago and she didn't want to know... I haven't really got any other business partners at the mo. No one else believes in what I am doing online will make money apart from my WIFE

    Would it cause trouble if someone opened an account for someone else to let them use it?

    the best solution would be to create another paypal account. if there's a wheel, there's a way!

    Wheel??

    Are you related to this person? lol

    This is the second time today that the phrase, "If there's a will, there's a way" has been misspoken. So surreal....

    That is awful advice.

    In 99% of the cases there is always a reason why you get banned, shut down, closed, excommunicated or in any other way cast out from something. You broke the rules. tried to shortcut, game a system or simply didn't take the time to LEARN the rules and fumbled your way to a ban.

    Using someone else- specially a relative - as a workaround is pure egoism. What happens when the ban hits them by your actions? (yes it will happen again)

    This is the same mentality where people take credits on their kids because they can't get their own (for good reason).

    You have been banned from Paypal for 2 years, but your setting up a coaching website. So if you plan on doing coaching Im going to assume that you must have been doing IM during the last 2 years right? So what have you been using? Use that. Or are you just planning on having a coaching website when you have done nothing for the last 2 years?
