    Hi Angela, Good tips! However I think you need to update or add to #1 (and #10) to say Open a PayPal account as that is the way 99% of companies pay shoppers now.

    • Vicki – good point. The intent of #1 was to make a shopper establish themselves as a ‘business’, but you are correct. We should have definitely included PayPal. Thanks! Look for future updates on this!
