recipient what does he see

 I don't want the recipient to see my personal details such as address or name. I will be sending through my wife's bank account.  What does the recipient see, and we don't want to open up a biz account.  I don't mind if he sees my name but my wife is extremely private. 


Re: recipient what does he see

Hi, Carl111. Thanks for taking the time to post your question here on the PayPal Community Forum. Knowing what is displayed to a seller/recipient when you complete a purchase or send money is very important. PayPal limits the amount of information due to privacy concerns, but there is some information that needs to be provided.


In general, when a customer sends a payment or sends money, PayPal provides the seller/recipient with their name, email address, and shipping address (when a transaction involves goods that need to be shipped). PayPal will never give a seller/recipient information about the method of payment. Whether money is used from a PayPal account balance or from a bank account or a card, that's between you and PayPal.
