I'm confused about Pay Pal

Post by Marstol Nitely » Wed Sep 04, 2013 12:57 am

I know I have a verified account (I use it to pay Kitely every month). It's under my husband's name. We share our checking and they'll only let us have one checking account per PP account. I am a authorized user and have a Pay Pal Master Card in my name and one of my email addresses on his account. When I went to put Pay Pal info into my Marketplace info it asks for a name. Do I put his name or mine?

Hi Marstol,

PayPal requires us to have the name on the PayPal account in order to be able to check whether it is verified. As that is the case, we need you to enter the name that your PayPal account is set up with (which in your case is your husband's name). Please note that this information will not be passed on to buyers, they will only see Kitely's PayPal account and your avatar's identity.

Thanks Ilan. Kind of figured that might be it, but thought it would be easier to do it right the first time.

Who can see the information in the PayPal settings?

Hi ShowStopper,

Only Kitely admins can see the PayPal settings you enter in your Manage Store page.

Kitely acts as a middleman in all transactions so buyers will only see the merchant's Kitely user name (and Kitely's PayPal information) and merchants will only see the buyer's Kitely user name (and Kitely's PayPal information).
