PayPal Alternatives for Under 18's?

4 replies
I've spent the last few months making a WordPress theme, and I'd very much like to start selling it as soon as possible! However, I'm not 18 until January, so I'm not technically (legally) allowed a PayPal account. Should I just wait, or is there an alternative?

    being under 18, my guess is that you are out of luck. most payment processors require a person to be 18 years old to legally sign their terms of use agreements.

    Do you maybe have a parent that could help you out with this?

    You could have your parents, older friends, or siblings set it up for you. This is probably the quickest way, and it's better to start now than waiting a couple months just because your not old enough.

    But i don't think there are any alternatives, because paypal is just adhering to laws that are in place, and everybody else probably has to play by the same rules.

    I guess the best bet would be to get my parents to set it up for me, it is annoying knowing I only need to wait a couple of months though!

    Thanks for your help.
