Guys,
I think the problem here with piercing the veil argument is:
1. Money is gathered through the use of a Personal PayPal account, which then goes into a personal bank account----this is comingling of accounts.

2. Money goes from a personal account into a business account-----this is not comingled money because it should be treated as a contribution to capital in the business account, or as a loan to the business.

In the case of #1, the corp veil is easily pierced. In #2, it would not be pierced if the incoming monies are termed either contribution to capital or a loan to the business.
