Default How long is wise to wait until I start accepting payments via PayPal

I read about the eBay you have to wait until you start accepting payments.
Can you do the same thing with PayPal?
What's a reasonable time period to wait between making the account, adding phone number etc.

Should it be at least a week between these?

It becomes a problem if the transaction is fraudulent or you are "growing" too fast.

Have you had the chance to read the eBay Stealth yet btw? Plenty of good info in the book
