how many sales do you think you will be making a month? I would say go with Premier...which is required to accept credit card payments when you sell stuff.

You have to be 18 to set up a Paypal account. Until then, you'll have to use your parents' account.

Correct, you do need to be 18 to register. A premier account is not necessary if you are just doing small, paypal to paypal transactions. Not many hobbyists accept credit cards anyway so you won't be losing a lot of business.

Yes, it means that your dad would set up the account and you would get a debit card tied to that account. Your dad would have control over all the funds going into the account and he would be able to monitor all your spending activity. It doesn't look like you can accept payments with a student account, I think it is just a debit card for you.
