Can I take payments with a personal PayPal account? You would like to use your personal PayPal account to take credit card payments.
Personal PayPal accounts are not fully supported. There is no IPN (Instant Payment Notification) service with a PayPal personal account. This means that your orders will show as Incomplete/PayPal Pending, even when the payment has been made. Thermometers will not rise appropriately. Please try to secure a PayPal business account.
