You are not allowed to sell on a personal account and doing so negated your seller protection.
A personal account is for buying or sending money to family / friends so you don't need seller protection for that type of account.
If you are selling you need a business account even if you are a small time seller.
If you are not a registered business then you just fill in the info as an "individual seller".
