Name issue within basic magento set up

I have a quick question about the basic magento settings – long story but my ebay sites were ill named! before we considered them a business – so long and the short the maintained name is one thing but the business is called another! This has been an issue for me as long as I can remember as if I change the names I lose anybody that has favourited me. Did this once and it had a significant impact on sales – this obviously causes me an issue if someone is looking for either of the businesses as we dont show up on ebay! – I am waffling, the actual question was in the final set up of basic magento settings you say put your ebay name – so should I use the business name or the maintained by name? If you have any suggestions on the other issue would love to hear it! Thanks Phil

Hi Phil

I believe this refers to your actual eBay account name, so whatever the account name is, that would be the one we recommend using
