I'm forced to have a business account if I want to sell products on a online store?

Posted on



I'm a mid-time developer and I would like to create my own store on my website, I found this snippet to send payments (which doesn't require a business account), but it's unsafe to implement:


<form id="paypal-form" name="_xclick" action="" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick" />
<input type="hidden" name="business" value="<email>" />
<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="EUR" />
<input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="xxx" />
<input type="hidden" name="no_shipping" value="1" />
<input type="hidden" name="address_override" value="1">
<input type="hidden" name="amount" value="60" />
<input type="hidden" name="landing_page" value="billing">
<input type="hidden" class="return" name="return" value="">
<input type="hidden" name="cancel_return" value="">
<input type="submit">


But I will another solution (like OpenCart or WooComerce). In this case, I'm forced to change my account to Business?
