Account: Name Privacy Issue


I'm new here and hoping that someone can enlighten me.

I would like to know if I could change my display name (without including my last name, just the title and first name).

The reason is because I've recently had some privacy issues with a few callers to my business (individuals),

and I'm a individual business. 

Although it has nothing to do with paypal payments (yet), I'm getting out there on the web and because of a few incidents this past week, I feel I need more protection.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Hello DrCollete,


You can change your business name that appears on the checkout page for your customers by logging into your PayPal account, clicking on the profile link under My Account, click on the Business Information link under Account Information and  then click on change name next to Business contact name and select Business Name Change (business name). I hope this helps.
