How to get a PayPal account?

If you use the internet for shopping, banking, or for any financial transactions, you would be remiss not to have a PayPal account. PayPal is a service that not only takes, but stores your information, so that you can make safe monetary transactions without supplying your financial information across the internet, and through various websites. Minimizing the potential that your information will be hacked by criminals or thieves, it gives you the security to have only one point to supply your information that provides better security of your personal financial information.

Anyone can have a PayPal account. It is as easy as supplying some minimal information, and you are ready to make financial transactions at will. All you have to do is sign up on PayPal is verify your name, your email, and some banking information. You can either sign up for a PayPal for personal use, or for business use. Depending on whether you want to use your account to make personal purchases, or you want to use PayPal to accept payments, signing up is not only free, but easy.

For a personal, or business PayPal account, simply follow these steps.

  1. Go to
  2. Click on the button which says “sign up”
  3. Fill in your country and your language preferences
  4. Choose either PayPal for personal use, or PayPal for business use and then click the “get started” button
  5. Fill in the boxes appropriate to supply the information that is required
  6. Once you have filled in the fields, click on “Agree and Create Account”
  7. Enter the code that appears in the box, into the box indicated
  8. From there you will be directed to link your bank account, or link your debit or credit card information

Once you have added all the information that is required, there will be a review of your information. You will not be able to use your PayPal account until the information is verified. If you choose to use your bank account for verification, it may take longer. They will have to verify the account by making small transactions which you will have to verify. That can take 2 to 5 business days. If you want to start using your account quicker, it is best to use your credit, or debit card, to establish your account. You can always enter your bank account information sometime in the future.

More businesses are starting to use the option to pay through PayPal. When making purchases, it is always easier to use your PayPal account than to search for your wallet, and inputting your credit card information every time.
