Default Quick question

When someone (a business for example) pays ME via paypal, can they find out the name registered to the account?

And can they tell if the email address they are sending payment to is the PRIMARY email address?

And if so, is there a way for them to find out this information BEFORE sending payment to me?

Is this for ebay or an off ebay transaction?

Off eBay transaction. The reason I'm asking is because some online survey sites will only pay to a verified eBay account that is registered in your name. Just wondering how they could even know what name is associated with the account.

HI:
When they pay, it will say-- youve just sent..$100 to: . xxxxxxx. Because you can store the other 7 emails on pp-I dont believe they can tell the primary, unless they search the "cust svc" email, which is what you place in there..

Hmmm...whenever I pay someone, it just says "you have sent XXX dollars to ...." and then gives their email address, but NEVER their name.

Okay, when I look at the transaction details, I can see the name associated with the account.

Thanks for all your help!

Is there a way to PREVENT your registered name from being given out?

Either register as a business with a real DBA, or use ⊗⊗⊗⊗ info.
