Default Can I pay online using Paypal without revealing my real name?

If I used Paypal in paying online, will it reveal my real name even if I use a Business account?

Your name on the account? It usually just shows business name when I receive but depending on the shipping address shown there's a possibility.

Are you just sending a payment or checking out on line at like an online retailer?

Your name (or whatever name you used on the account) if it's a personal account. Your business name if it's a business account.

It will show either the persons name for a personal account, or business name in the case of a business account. I think there's a setting in your business account you can change to make it show what you want to your payee as well.

There is a setting to change what business name is shown to customers, and there's also an option in business accounts to either show your real name + business name or just your business name. I can confirm from invoicing myself.
