Today's topic is PayPal account types, there are three - Personal, Premier and Business. We recommend that all of our users be Business or Premier - this will ensure that credit card donations are automatically accepted and paid into your account. The default personal account requires you to manually log in and approve each donation payment before it's credited into your account and then show up in the DonationsTracker.com campaign. (So if you received donations and your campaign is not showing the credit card ones - this is why). Personal accounts usually have a $500 limit before you must do the free upgrade to business or premier. While personal accounts can receive free PayPal transfers up to the first $500, a premier or business account is needed to regularly accept credit card donations or transfers totalling more than $500.
