You can upgrade to business as simple as adding a business name / address, which can be the same as your personal account. However, I have seen PayPal request additional information on the business when its done like this.

More red tape generally with business accounts.

Always more info needed down the line from PayPal...stick to Personal is my preference

Are you talking about an eBay business account or a PayPal business account here?

Ah right, just the ebay account. Was assuming they automatically got the 100 items per month limit but thinking I got that wrong if they're no harder to make?
Honestly want to buy some off of either of you 2 above but nervous they'll just get banned lol. Already had 4-5 from callidus going well so far but.....lol

You need to look as real as you can and have an accessible address.

gone are the days of no access to an address.

Business accounts are a risk because ebay want an address on listings.

Think carefully here.

Yeah I have thought about it lol. And I understand all that but my other business accounts are going fine so I want some more. Really can't have 50 personal accounts like I said in another thread. If someone could pm me how to sort the address out for a business account I'll love you forever

What was happening before the purges, paypal wanted a lot of info regarding the actual workings of the business.

ID, business details, registered address of the business head office. BUT worse, they also asked for selling plans. Bar stewards wanted to know if stock was in hand.

This was not just for the usual limitations but part of their prying into the workings of accounts.

Unless a seller had a fully operational business account, it is preferable to avoid the concept, imho.

i presume things maybe a bit more relaxed if your a sole trader? or maybe not.

2 years ago, the things they reqiured was pretty much attainable and easyily to give to them.

wonder if starting off as a personal and then changing to business might be better.

on a side note, i recollect on a non stealth business account created a few years back i could not supply supplier invoices to paypal and explained this to them, paypal asked me to take a photo of me with the items in my possession with my name and ebay id on a piece of paper and send that in.
