    An email wouldn't hurt depending on how much time you have before you launch, can take 10 days or more to get a response from Paypal but in my experience they are pretty professional and will tell you what to do to get your account more secure.

    I think this usually depends more on your account history and how odd it will be to suddenly have a huge surge of sales(hopefully right?) Also, the type of account you have, the "personal" accounts are not meant to handle big numbers in most cases and are for the average buying and occasional selling individual. With a verified "premier" account I have never had a problem and opened my account in 2006, have had months of inactivity between different offers and then did this or that and had a big surge up over $4k within a couple days but never got frozen or even an email from them.

    Definitely get yourself verified through them before you go and launch.

    You should call paypal. Don't email. They are FAR more responsive by phone and are very helpful. I've had my account frozen before by then and they flat out told me that they want sellers to call them.

    Every time I get to where I think I should use Paypal, threads show up about frozen/closed accounts. No joke. I wonder if that's an omen or something.

    So what number do you call to alert them that a sudden influx of cash may be on the way? The regular customer service number, or is there another one?

    Nightowl, you want to call them before any unexpectedly large transactions take place, such as in the case of a product launch or large affiliate payment from a CPA network. It'd be fine calling them at their regular customer service number, though they have taken pains to hide it rather well on their website - it is buried in there somewhere. I have their number saved on my cellphone so that I don't have to dig it up every time that I need to call.
