Default Is it only my business name shown to whoever I send money to?

I upgraded my personal PayPal account to business account to hide my real name and address, as that is totally unnecessary information for anyone to know who I am willing to donate to. After successfully have upgraded the account and entered the name I want to be displayed, and in the checkout page when I try to donate to someone, I can see my real name displayed instead of my business name. After googling for quite a long time, I tried the method that instructs to do the following:

Log into your PayPal account.
Click 'Profile' near the top of the page.
Click 'My business info. ...
Click 'Update' next to 'Business information. ...
Click 'Change name' next to 'Business Contact Name.
Select 'Business Name Change (business name)' and click 'Continue.'
Enter your new business name and click 'Continue.'

However, I noticed my 'Business contact name' is my real name and when try to change that by choosing "my business name has change" and I enter the name I have chosen for it, it doesn't change!

My business name is displayed only in 'Business information' in settings, but not in "Business contact Name"

So, what gives? Is it my business name that is going to be shown to people or my real name?

Welcome to the forum - all the best as you master stealth

Might be worth doing a small "test payment" (if possible) to one of your other e-mails via stealth method - do it to an e-mail not registered with pp so you can "claim your money" and see what shows?
