Here, there are some places to pay attention to:
1.PayPal collection account must be registered with company information. Money can only be withdrawn to the public account, but the withdrawal to the public account is very troublesome, not only to pay taxes, but also to handle various procedures is very troublesome. Therefore, our general practice is to register a Hong Kong company, then register a PayPal account with the information of the Hong Kong company, and finally withdraw the money from PayPal to the Hong Kong bank, and then transfer the money to the country. Another way is, if you are using the PayPal payment account registered with the domestic company profile, you can downgrade the current PayPal payment account to the legal person’s personal collection account according to the PayPal official recommendation, and then you can directly put the money. Withdrawal to the personal bank card of the legal person.

It is recommended that you use a new computer to register. This computer can’t go to the foreign website from time to time, and then close the VPN over-the-wall software to open the domestic website. PayPal’s risk control system is very powerful. In this network environment, if you log in to your PayPal account, it is often unsuccessful to log in. There are two situations that are often encountered: one is that you cannot log in, and the other is that you must reset your password to log in. Therefore, it is recommended that you use a computer with a stable network environment to register your PayPal account and log in to your PayPal account only on this computer.
