Premier Account

I was trying to upgrade from personal to premier but it never gave me the choice for premier only business . How do I upgrade to premier? Do I have to close account and signup from scratch?

Personal and premier merged a while ago so if you have a personal account then you have a personal / premier account and that is why you are allowed to sell using a personal / premier account.

If you mean that you can accept paypal payments FUNDED via a credit card then yes.

 

If you mean that you can accept credit cards direct to your paypal account when the buyer does not have a paypal account then no.

In addition to agreeing to these PayPal Here Terms, you will be required to provide certain personal and business information in order for you to register for PayPal Here. You must have a Business Account in good standing and be approved by PayPal to use PayPal Here. If you have a Personal or Premier Account (rather than a Business Account) prior to signing up for PayPal Here, you will be automatically upgraded to a Business Account as part of the application process but no charge will be made for this upgrade.

There is no such thing as a premier account anymore as they merged with personal a while ago.

 

So now if you have a personal account then you have a personal / premier account.

Then there is a business account.

Re: Premier Account

I am trying to set up an ecommerce option on my blog with WooCommerce but I need the API credentials apparently and I can only get those if I have a premier account. So since personal accounts merged with premier how do I get the API credentials to begin selling with PayPal?
