Unable to Upgrade to Premier Account

I'm just beginning to use Paypal as a method of receiving payments, and I wanted to upgrade my Personal account to a Premier account. However, every time I attempt to upgrade as per the instructions, I am only allowed to upgrade to a business account. Is there a workaround to this, please help!

This is the screen I keep coming to: http://imgur.com/Y6VfVZN

Re: Unable to Upgrade to Premier Account

I am currently having problems with attempting to Upgrade to Premier account. Each time I try to upgrade it only gives me the option of upgrading to Business account. Is there something I can do to fix this? My account is in the USA.

Thank You

Re: Unable to Upgrade to Premier Account

I'm also having the same problem !?!?!?

 

 Major OOPS on my part - I didn't know I was NOT supposed to be selling on a personal account. 

 

I want to go to a premier account because I'm not running a business, but, for tax purposes I need the reports only available to premiere & business accounts.

OK - I FOUND IT !!! 

 

Go to this page: Sign up for PayPal

 

On the right just above the text that reads "PayPal for business and nonprofits", there is text that reads "Already have a PayPal account? Upgrade now." Click on the "Upgrade now".

 

That will take you to a screen that allows you select Premier or Business.

I am having the same problem in the US and the link that was posted just takes me to a page that says the last action couldn't be completed.

Try the link above and then choose the 'Upgrade Now', put your details in and then click Premier Account.  It worked for me in the UK just now!

This worked for me as well. Thank you!

I have no idea why the website is making it hard for us to do this or find this page.
