hey guys, i just want to maybe release some models I now want to create a paypal to start all this.

so exactly as i go to sign up in paypal there are 2 options which are PayPal for you and PayPal for business now if someone who already did this will guide me which one is the right one to sell models and receive money in my card or doing a donation button and reciving money.

which is the one i need to choose? is PayPal for you able to people send you money as donations or do i have to choose PayPal for business?

thanks guys

Hi Dida, It's been a while since I did this myself, and I believe that when I did so many years ago, that this was possible with the personal account (which they have renamed to be the Paypal for you option). With this option you are able to set up simple Paypal Buy Now buttons and get the code for these to place in websites so that buyers can use to purchase items with Paypal.
The business option (Paypal for business) was not required unless you needed the extra options/functionality that this allowed, e.g. merchant accounts, etc.
So to sum up, all you need is the Paypal for you account and then look for the option to create your own Buttons to allow people to purchase from you (the payment goes to your Paypal account, so not sure about going to your card).
Hope this answers your question. Sorry that I can't really guide you on how to do any of this, but as I have said it's been a while since I did this myself and at the time the functionality was different to how it is now. Cheers and good luck.

I believe it is, just depends on what kind of button you create.
I forgot to say that if you go with the personal account, you can always upgrade to the business account afterwards anyway.

Just to keep in mind, you have something like £2000~ or there about that you may send or receive [I believe it is both ways] before they force you onto a merchant account... or maybe that restriction was until you verified your accounts... forgot but I too have not touched much in PayPal for some time, I prefer SagePay ^^
