Default Stealth paypal account - failed at first hurdle

Despite 98.5% feedback and 10+ transactions a day for 3+ years, ebay suspended my account permanently.

I am i the process of getting back online. I opened a paypal account but as a business - sole proprietor - and now paypal is saying "we need to know more information about the persons who will be using the account" or something. So its asking for DOB and address, and when I click confirm, it says it can't verify this information. Now they want to see ID and proof of address before I can continue.

Why do paypal need this info - should I have signed up for a personal account? Before, I was selling in large volume, well above an individual level...

I can provide ID - its a friends' and a shopped proof of address. Is this the way to go? Why couldn't they verify the information? How do they know who lives at the address?

Welcome to the forum - your q's are fairly standard - best to read around the forums +/- get the guide.

Providing a friend's ID could lead to him having problems with pp in the future...no?

Thanks, I did get Stealth and read through it prior.

I will read over the forums and see what info I find.

So I should just do like I said and submit the docs?

The friend has given permission and has never used paypal and unlikely ever to (not v tech savvy)

THanks

Up to you really - me? I don't like dealing with other folk's info but if you want to work with your friend's info, go for it - just if the account goes down, hope he realizes that his own info will be no good for pp ...again.

It's called the Electoral Register and there is also 192.

If your not on it at the address you have given then you need to provide docs to prove who you say you are.

Oh! using your friends info is a great big NO
