Default Selling Social Media services Paypal

I recently started selling social media stuff via my website and Paypal. From my understanding, PP is a big issue when selling social media stuff.

I registered new Business Paypal account for this purpose around the end of September.

Had 18 transactions totaling 450$ in November and spent about 260$
December (13th today) 1100$ in sales and spent 650$.

I try to spend slowly and I have not sent to myself at all.

I reckon I will soon get hit with documentation. What the approximate threshold for documentation and what kind of docs do they ask for?

This Paypal has all legit info and registered business name connected, but I can't really provide any documentation on services provided since its just social media stuff (likes, followers etc.)

If this account gets banned for no reason as it often happens will my real info be blacklisted?

Since sales are growing I can't risk not having a working PP account.

Who would you recommend buying a backup account from and what country? and what kind of account?

I see a lot of people sell accounts with crazy limits like 1000/25k$... will that kind of account be better even though I don't sell for that much.


It got pretty long, hope anyone has the patience to help newbie out!

Those are Ebay accounts with those limits not paypal.

Eventually you will get asked for documentation from paypal. I think it is unavoidable when you start doing bigger numbers.

What you are selling is basically a service, you mentioned:

They will most likely ask for business information, like what is your business (I have been asked that), what specifically you are selling (I have been asked that), proof of business registration (I have been asked that). On a few occassions I have been asked about certain transactions and proof of delivery (The account in question sells digital stuff and access to my own membership sites and courses).

Of course, this is in addition to them asking for photo id, proof of address, etc.

Don't be freak out when you log into your account and see it limited. Just be ready to reply and don't be afraid to call in if necessary (you mentioned the info is all legit, so it should be easy for you to provide the info).

You should be doing this across multiple accounts, you are going to get asked for everything under the sun eventually.

Thanks!

How did you prove delivery of membership ? did you just send invoice customer got?

I'm prepared to fix this when the time comes, but have heard from mutual friends with insane amounts on with PP that even they got their accs banned. Just want to have this legit acc for as long as possible before the circus with stealth accs begin.

That's what I've been thinking about, to start warming up other acc by splitting orders. Any PP acc providers you would recommend?

A membership site should have a backend that generates usernames and passwords. I always use the customer's paypal email address as their username because when I get users complaining they never got access (the ones who want to access the content and then ask for a refund saying they never got access) I show paypal when their username and password were generated and that the info was sent to their paypal registered email address. This also works for digital downloads as well. Everything sent to their paypal email. I have had several cases decided in my favor when I provided that information via screenshots.

There are guys that think they are sneaky and will buy, go inside and download everything they go, change their paypal email, open a case for a refund saying they never got access. But when you look at the original receipt from paypal it has their old email, but in their case in paypal they have a different email. And when I look in the backend of the members portal it shows when they logged in.

You should honestly be selling on ebay accounts with their own PayPals, and not trying to use multiple paypals on 1 ebay account. 1 ebay account to 1 PayPal (1:1).
