Since you don't actually need to be a "business" for PayPal, wouldn't that 
work?  Once you become legit ;), then you can link the PayPal acct to the 
real checking acct.  Works for my site.

Parts, no prob.  Lawyer, Forget it.  Too expensive.

YO, YO, YO.  What'll $20 get me?

Tell me about it.  I have been toying with the idea of doing this for my 
site, <plug> http://www.redhotsweeps.com </plug> and the costs are just too 
prohibitive.  Gotta buy in bulk.  If no one buys any, then you are stuck 
with them.

I'd be interested in hearing any results of this for my site if not a prob.

No prob.
