What paypal account do you use?

20 replies
Hey guys I was thinking about writing an ebook and try to sell it using e-junkie.com, but I don't know what paypal account I have to use.

Do I have to open a premier account or it is okay to use my personal paypal account?

I am asking this question because I heard some people saying paypal may freeze your account.

    Truth be told, we actually have 2 Paypal accounts. One for business and one for personal use.

    it's been known selling internet marketing products through Paypal is always a risk. But out of the two you stated, you'd need a premier Paypal account.

    No, it is NOT ok to use personal account to receive money from business activity. You need premier or business.

    Next time, you can also read paypal's TOS - it is there...

    Use a Premier account if you're going to receive a lot of payments.

    For business purpose whether that's selling products or providing services, you must use Paypal Premier or business account as per Paypal TOS to be on safe side or out of risk. If you are using personal account for business purpose.. paypal will look at your account as a suspicious and may freeze your account if you cross the transaction limits.

    Like all the other warriors I agree with the premier account (or first premier at least , and after a while, when everything is going great, go for business). All the verification steps are easy to follow, and the whole process does not take long, ( 2 days the most ).

    You should definitely have a business account. For one thing, it's against the TOS to do business related work on a personal account, and for another there are a few perks which you would be silly to give up.

    Premium Account should be fine. Business Account will need additional details.

      So, I assume the Business account is one step up from a Premier account?

        Not really. The primary difference from what I've seen is that your tax ID on a Premier account is always your SSIN, but the tax ID on a Business account may be your Federal EIN.

      I have always used a Premier PayPal account for business purposes. I also have a personal PayPal account but hardly ever use it. I have never had any problems with the Premier account.

    Hey xdmannet, I don't know if you know this... but it's always possible to upgrade your personal account to a business account. If your planning on selling an eBook its always crucial to get a business account. The reason for this thinking is, you wouldn't sell anything in a personal account. Your account will not get banned if you have a business account. Lately Paypal has been attacking the internet marketing business model. This is because some people have been selling from there personal Paypal account.

    Your personal Paypal account is to send out-going money not to receive money, this is an error many people make.

    I hope this information was helpful to you.

    To your success,

    Abraham Guzman

    The great thing about having a premier account on paypal is that instead of your name showing up on the payment transaction, you company’s name will appear there.
