Default Paypal want to verify but it's different name from mine?

Hi,
I have a Paypal account in a friend's name that i need to verify so i can sell on ebay but to verify i have to give my bank details so they can put the small deposits in. To change the name to mine i would have to provide all sorts of proof.
My question is can i just put my sort code and account number in and leave the friend's name on? Will my bank, HSBC, accept Paypal's small amounts to my account even though it has a different name attached to it?

Thank you in advance.

Usually not a problem. HSBC are used for stealth purposes.

Add your sort code & account number as you said.

For the future try to avoid involving a friend. Business & friends do not mix.

I shudder to think what you might have to do if the account is ever limited and you really need to de-limit it...rough for the friend.

Hi,
On another matter- I see that to sell on ebay you can either verify your Paypal or supply bank account details to ebay.
Any advice on whether i should try that option aswell? Can you sell instantly that method or do they put small deposits in, like Paypal?

He may say that now but nobody ever means never.

The other side of it is if you stiff e/b on fees then he will be seriously pi**ed off with you.

It has happened more than once.

Do the right thing, forget this account and set up a new one without using your friends inf. YOU KNOW IT MAKES SENSE

Once your p/p is verified its good to add to e/b. No more deposits required.

BUT don't use your friends info, PLEASE.

It WILL end in tears.

Is HSBC actually a good bank to use for stealth purposes then? Always got the impression from posts on here that it wasnt..

I had Paypal account permanently limited linked to an hsbc account and worked fine.
The suspension was for something else.
So hsbc for me worked well.

Hi again
Grrrr- i've tried using the HSBC account details and it says that 'That bank cant be linked to any more Paypal accounts'.

Do they mean that bank account or that bank?

Also, hypothetically, can i use either Barclays or Halifax banks under someone else's name?

Update-
It's ok, i have now added a different account number with the same sort code so the message from Paypal should have read 'That bank sort code cant be linked to any more Paypal accounts'.

Grrrrrr...i've just logged into my ebay account to verify myself that way because i notice that the random amounts have yet to appear in my HSBC account (under my friend's name) and got transferred to my Paypal account where i get the message 'Could not initiate random deposits, please select another bank'!
I thought HSBC were ok for this?

In an earlier post you said you changed the account number and used the same sort code after a message advised that the original number you used could not be added to any more p/p accounts.

Is the account number you changed to an actual/real account or did you just make it up in order to get past the problem.

Thats what it sounds like to me and is probably why deposits could not be initiated as the account doesn't actually exist

Hi,
Thanks for that but no, im not stupid enough to do that.
I triple checked that the account number was his other account number. It is a working account number.
Very odd.

I see that filling in a direct debit form is another option? Would that be ok to use with a different name to the Bank account?

Completing the DD mandate is how the micro deposits are initiated, they won't be sent until its set up

Bugger!!
Thanks for that, sorry for the foolish question! I thought all i needed to do was input the account number?
If that is so, why would i get the message 'Could not initiate random deposits, please select another bank'?

Weirdly, I've just logged in again and now it says that the random amounts are on their way and for me to check in two to three days?
I did not fill in the direct debit form.

You must have, they could not and would not be sent otherwise.
