  1. 1 - Merchant account registration requires a bunch of materials for proof of address, and 2 - Personal/merchant account withdrawal methods. Can these 2 points be added? Especially the merchant account withdrawal, our company opened a corporate account, but did not open the import and export area, the company account of the bank counterpart said the account may not be able to accept paypal merchant account withdrawal transfer.

    1. The address proof of the corporate account can be uploaded using the front and back of the ID card of the legal representative, do not use PDF file format and the size should not exceed 5MB; the personal PP account can be added using the bank card of the account holder / the corporate account can be added to the basic account of the enterprise for withdrawal; the added basic account of the enterprise to the PP account for withdrawal, if the withdrawal bank needs to account for the details of the receipt, it can be in the PP account If the withdrawing bank needs to account for the receipt details, it can provide the receipt records in the PP account for audit. Different commercial banks have different requirements, so it is advisable to consult the policy of the issuing bank of the bank account before adding it.

    1. The personal account is certainly not as formal as the corporate account, and there are some aspects of use that correspond to different permissions. wp can still use the personal account to receive money.
