Default Merchant/Business Account question

Hey you guys! I've been reading a lot about Merchant and Business accounts on the Bay. I have always set up a Business account with Ebay and Paypal, so this time I did the same thing.

My question is: Would I be better off to keep what I have or try to downgrade to a Merchant account? Or am I SOL and just go along with what I have set up as Stealth with?

Thanks for any feedback!

What do you mean by 'downgrade' to a merchant account?

Maybe he thought "downgrade" to premiere or personal account? If so, its probably better to open new account as whatever way you like than changing existing one...

Sorry...Your right Lyda! I meant a personal or premier account. But as of today, I had forgotten that I had to call the bank and get the 4 digit code from paypal for the $1.95 they charged. So I went ahead and entered my code and they said that "all limitations have been lifted". I have the correct SSN when needed, but will they still LIMIT me at some time?

Anyway, a bit off of the subject, but I guess since I have gone this far as creating my first Stealth Ebay & Paypal accounts with NO problems at all and ALL limitations lifted, wouldn't it be a better idea to just stay where I am now? I like the Business accounts because thet are more private, that's all.

Thanks!

Thanks! I thought I could, but the more I thought about it I would still have to CONTACT the Customer Service Department.

Thank you for your input GB & Lyda! Enjoy the weekend too!
