Thank you so much for the answer and information, it means a lot to know some more about how it all works. I do plan on making it official, but because the courts just love to gate keep affairs in which they shouldn't, it's a lengthy and pretty expensive process to do, one which I unfortunately can't afford to do right now(hence why I started trying to make extra money in the first place, haha). I'm hoping to hit the goal soon, but I guess for now I'm just going to have to deal with it as it is, and see if trying to change my name on the invoice works.

Is there any way to hide a dead name while still on a personal account? It makes me sick and anxious to see my dead name every time I send an invoice for an art commission, but I do not have my name legally changed as of yet. I absolutely hate having people know my dead name and knowing people see it is just... Honestly uncomfortable.
I'm new to this whole site and just trying to make some money in commissions, but my dead name showing on invoices has made me too anxious to even send one invoice out to my clients. Would changing my name on my business information in an invoice affect my account and transactions and render them useless? I don't mind my preferred name being shared online, but having my dead name out there is something I'm really not okay with. Shouldn't PayPal have some sort of preferred name support for transgender users by now?
It's probably dumb of me to ask this, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
Also sorry if this is posted in the wrong area or given the wrong labels, this is my first time posting.
