    Private Paypal account owners.

    Mind if you don't have registered businees and upgrade your personal paypal account to business account you will be requested for verification from Paypal. If you will not proove you have registered company your Paypal account will be probably blocked/suspended until you send document you simply don't have. It's just what i was told on Paypal call center. Selling models on Sketchfab is brilliant idea but I think it would be fair to warn people with individual accounts for help them avoid some potentially trouble with PayPal :) regards

    It depends on the country you live in. In the US, for example, an individual can upgrade to a "Business" account without any kind of legal registration. In Russia, however, a legal business registration of some kind is required.

    Perhaps you should warn users who live outside US that one click may freeze their money on Paypal eventually ... :)

    We're still gathering information and plan to release it soon. Even PayPal themselves do not have a complete list of what is required in which countries...

    Hellow...I am cgmekamono. I live in Japan.  Please help me about paypal link.  I got a business account for paypal today and pressed button on "link your paypal account" from may page.... but just login to paypal and go to paypal's site.  The page "agreeing to PayPal's User Agreement as well as giving the proper permissions to Sketchfab "does not appear. I tried it for 6 hours but I can not solve it so please tell me if you have a good idea. Thank you....

    Hi @cgmekamono, I'm sorry to share that PayPal has confirmed that Japan is not currently supported to connect to the Sketchfab Store using PayPal for Marketplaces. We're working hard to find a payment alternative so users like you can sell too. Stay tuned!

    To Bart

    I got an email saying "now support PayPal Personal accounts!".  Thank you very much. However, if I return the business account of paypal to personal account, it seems that it can not do business again, so I will wait for Sketchfab's new payment system. If it will takes long time ,I may return paypal to personal.... Thank you very much.

    To Bart

    Today I downgraded paypal business to premier. I pressed the "link your paypal account "button on sketchfab but it failed to link due to internal server error.
    In the mail from Bart, "we now also support PayPal Personal accounts" is written, but personal account is only shopping. In Japan I need to be a premier account to receive sales.
    So I will use sketchfab alternative instead of paypal. 
    Bart wrote in the mail "If you are not able to use PayPal, please let us know - we're working on alternatives.
    Please tell me the way to be alternatives..... Thank you...

    @cgmekamono Sorry about that. It's an issue on PayPal's side. They are investigating. I'm creating a support ticket for you and we'll follow up with any news.

    I got an email from Bart ,saying "you recently signed up for starting a store on Sketchfab. We messaged you about this several times, but to date you did not complete the process yet."

    1 I tried link in paypal business in March but just moved to paypa 's page and link did not complete.
    2 I downgraded to paypal premium and tried it, but I could not link.
    3 There is no casual selling system of paypal personal in Japan.

    Is there anyone who lives in Japan and has completed the process of Sketchfab store?

    @cgmekamono My apologies, I made a note in our email system that you're located in Japan, so you should no longer receive these updates because PayPal/Sketchfab on-boarding is not currently available in your country yet. We'll keep you posted about the alternative payments.

    Hi Fabio,

    You would like buyers to be able to purchase models using Bitcoins, or you want Bitcoins as a seller payout method?

    Hi James, thanks for your reply.

    I want to sell my products with Bitcoins and i'll love to pay with that too. I don't want to give money to the banks as much as possible.

    Well PayPal isn't available in my country. Do you plan to implement Visa/MasterCard payments?

    @rewq Currently, you can use your credit/debit card (with a PayPal Guest account) to make a purchase (if the seller has a PayPal Business account). If you're looking to sell, PayPal is currently our only payout option although we are looking into alternatives for the future.
