    Question Help Please.


    I have just started my own reseller account. I'm only 16, and didn't see it as a problem.

    I wanted to make a paypal account to handle payments, but in the UK, you have to be 18 to have a paypal account. I know some people at 16 do have a paypal account, but if I got caught, it could really damage payments, so I wouldn't want to risk.

    I know I could ask my parents or someone over the age of 18 to sign up, but, I don't really want to do this (Don't really know why).

    I did have a paypal business account, but once I found out you had to be 18, I deleted it.

    So my question is, is there a good payment gateway that I could use at my age? I was looking at 2checkout. I looked at their terms but couldn't see a age requirement there. Can someone confirm this for me, as I may have missed this.

    Thanks for any help

    I think your best option as you already know is asking your parents. Maybe you could get a friend who is 18 to sign up for you.

    Contact 2Checkout directly and ask them about their terms and conditions.

    Also, you could ask your parents for help - that is the best alternative to my mind.

    I am not sure if there is any age requirement with 2checkout. It is not free to open an account with them. I will assume there will not be restrictions. Your best bet is to contact them.
