I do not want my clients to see my real name on paypal invoices.
Is this avoidable?
Thank you.

      Although you definitely need to set up a business account with PayPal, it is not true that your bank account needs to be in the business name. You need a registered DBA and a sales tax certificate. If you are a sole proprietor, you only need your SSN and the sales tax resale certificate in your DBA name and can use your personal bank account.

    Work with paypal. All that information is right there on their site as well they have really good customer service. And as professor said. Upgrade to business account. It is free and takes less than five minutes

    My small business is not registered with government. If I upgrade to a pay pal business account, is there a risk that pay pal will limit my account until I provide any and all business related documents, such as business tax paid? ie: the sales tax resale certificate in your DBA name

    I noticed some of the payments I have received have been from company name LLC.
