avs is the address verifaction system. it's usually your name and residential billing address listed on a credit card.

An AVS check is primarily a numeral verification. that is..the numbers attached to your street address, your zip code and naturally the credit card numbers. the name is rarely ever checked.

cards that are coming with a new dba bank account. i had to go to a couple of banks before i could get one that would not put my actual name on the debit card, just the dba name. i am not sure what address they are going to use though. i also did order a prepay from western union, they asked for my ssn# though. not sure if that would be a problem.

When doing a DBA account, banks should not put your name on debit card. It should only be your DBA name. I would have another talk with them banks.

they kept saying as a sole proprietor my name has to be on the card. if i had used an "inc." it would have worked easier.

yeah, see. my checks are coming with the dba on it too. luckily i found a bank that would play ball and use the dba on card with my initials on the second line. i also ordered one with the initials right after the dba, on the same line

****************. you have to sign up for 4 accounts and put $100 in each one. savings and checking business and savings and checking personal. after 24 hours you can take the $400 back out. plan to spend a good hour there. go to an actual branch not the supermarket kiosk ones. they also have a feature that "unlinks" the business accounts from the personal account. that way you can transfer the money from paypal to the business account then transfer it all to your personal account and they can never touch it. short of a court order of course.

you're going to need 2 (1 checking + 1 savings) per dba. since you already have a personal account with them the rest should be easy for you.

yes. you have to get a dba certificate from your local county clerk's office. cost me $25. then you have a month to run an add in the local paper or the clerk will cancel your dba. they will give you a paper explaining all the in's and out's. dba might be the way to go. i think i am going to try to open a paypal account with the dba info. have not yet received the debit cards from the bank. i will let you know how it goes.

the dba name i picked sounds like it could be a person's name or a business name. i mixed some vietnamise with a little spanish and came up with something similar to: "Jun Expeda" something like that should work out fine.

Does the dba name has to do with your buisness?

does not have to i don't think. hell i got away with a weird one! has nothing to do with anything! on the dba request form you fill out at the clerk's office just put that you are trying to open a mail order business. the bank didn't really care. they were just happy to sell four new accounts to one person. i think it is a bad idea to use a name that can only be a name. for example: "john smith". that would be hard to explain. try to combine words from different languages to make a two word dba. for example "pho ngyuen" that would be a name for an asian noodle house or someone's actual name.
