Default Linking Merchant account

I have a Merchant account with Authorize.net through Flagship Merchant Services. If I set up a new EBAY account and I use the Merchant Account do the EBAY name and address have to match the Merchant Account? Ebay now requires checkout through Ebay only. They're getting wiser. So, when I give them my Merchant Account login name and key will they have access to all my information and be able to track me? .

You would simply need a new Authorize.net for each account which is what I do all linked to your merchants account, a.net is just a gateway.

You can offer Paypal, and offer your merchants account together. The Paypal payments will not be going through your merchants account but, also most people will only want to pay with Paypal then. I got a merchants account to totally get rid of Paypal, but not offering it buyers have to use there credit card to pay me, I am in control of my money not Paypal.

Yes, you can offer both but as you said that most buyers will choose to pay you using paypal so in this case your transactions through the merchant account will be very low and you will still recieve payments to your paypal which isn't a solution!

Wouldn't that affect your selling and profits badly?
this will make you only target people who can pay through their cc while you know that more than 95% of the buyers on ebay just use paypal to pay for their purchases!
Isn't there any gateway to make paypal payments be proceeded and added to your merchant card?

I have never had an issue with sales with using my merchants vs only using Paypal, if they need the item I am selling which they always do, then they play by my rules. The real business world doesnt revolve around ebay and Paypal.

After I added my ID and Key to eBay for my Authorize.net account, it said my account was successful, however it would not let me list it as a form of payment unless I contacted eBay customer support.

When you contact customer support, then want a print out from Authorize.net with your information showing you are the account owner.

So unless the names match on both ends, good luck.

Generally your authorize.net setup and API info is provided by the merchant account provider. Are you getting your multiple authorize accounts from authorize, or from the merchant provider?

Authorize.net provides you with a login/key, with each new Authorize.net is a new login/key. The merchant bank is its own thing, Authorize.net is just a gateway.

Even with all that Lumberjack - you can have your own merchant account as well - but most people will use Paypal - 'the buyers choice'
