Hi Christine!

Generally speaking, from our side of things, all we require is that you use a full checking account, regardless if it is in your store's name or it is your own personal account. So as long as you are using a full checking account one way or another all should be well!

However, I should state to cover all bases that some banks may require that payouts go to a business bank account, but this depends entirely on the bank. Feel free to let us know if you encounter any issues along these lines but as far as we are concerned, all we require is that you use a full checking account.

Hope this helps!
