    Unfortunately you probably won't be able to. Most commercial accounts require insurance and a contract (especially malls). You can't get insurance because you are too young, and a contract can not be considered legit since you are too young.

    Your only other option would be to have a parent or other family member "own" your business until you are a legal adult. Then they could get the insurance coverage and all that good stuff. I'm sure you do good work, but I kinda doubt most commercial properties would want to deal with a 15 year old. Stick with the residential for now, IMO.
