How do I notify DO I will be using same PayPal information for a client's account?

Hello there. I work as a freelancer and I just finished a job for a client who doesn’t have PayPal Account but wants to pay for the server for the full year. Well, I took responsibility (cause I didn’t know what I was getting into) and now I know DO prohibits the sharing of PayPal accounts.

But they also say “without notifying DO in advance”. Well, from my own personal account I opened a Ticket an a support member explained to me the account will go flagged and that I would need to provide more information. That’s fine by me.

Is this what they call “notifying DO of the intent in advance”? An I ready to do this now? Do you think I’ll have a problem with this? I don’t intend to do fraud or anything. Just trying to finish this project and move on for Christmas.
