Can I hide my personal info to buyers? Bump

I am wanting to sell on a website. However I don't want my boss to know I am selling similar items. Is there a way to be a seller who accepts paypal but when they send me a payment that there is no way for them to know my real information? Real Name or address?

Welcome! 🙂

 

When someone pays you, they would be able to see your name and email address.  Business accounts can specify a business name that would appear instead of your personal name.

 

Generally speaking a seller's address would not be shared with a buyer but it's possible it would be shared as part of a dispute process for the return of items.  We maintain a full list of information that we share with other PayPal users in our privacy policy here:

I hope this helps. 🙂
