I have not heard of user's having problems getting these types of accounts before, I imagine that if the first two issues were taken care of the third might not be as big of a problem.
Thanks for your comments Eric,
As a noob to the whole powerstore shopping cart outfit, I was caught off guard thinking that my clients existing paypal account was sufficiant from the off, but only to realise a few months ago that it had to be a pro account. After an unclear process of what you have to have to gain a successful account upgrade to pro, I think this should be clearly noted before buying the powerstore product - apply to get an account first!
I mean if we cant get the account, we'll have to resort to authorize.net if its succesful and all payments will be changed on the exchange rate which is not ideal at all for the UK.
So if we are unsuccesful, it will be 5-6months work down the drain for me.
Do you recommend she opens a business account in the company name then?
The 3rd point about being 'high risk' category is just a cop out IMO from Paypal. I could understand if we were selling guns, etc, but vintage clothing? Shes been selling them for many years on ebay with a paypal account and just wants to upgrade to a more proffesional outfit. crazy to me :(
Any thoughts, tips, or opinions greatly recieved. Thanks in advance!
