    Anyone have custies that pay by internet banking only.if so, what do you do?
    Set up another personal bank account, using trading name or real name and just give custy the NEW account number.Would the bank set up another personal account for you or try and force you onto business account !!

    One of my customers sends money direct once a month.
    Banks never pressured me into anything through the years, I'm surprised.

    Cheers guys - its that thing about giving your details out, not certain I could do that.That's why I was considering another personal account.This also applies to the internet for me as well as I only ever buy things on the internet using prepaid credit cards as I don't really trust the system!
