How to Create a Paypal Account
Setting up a Paypal account is as simple as changing your FB status from ”Single” to ”It’s Complicated”. In fact, it is easier than breaking up with someone 😀 Not kidding!
Go to https://www.paypal.com and click Sign Up or Create An Account. You may do this through the Paypal website (open a browser using your phone or pc) or by an app (install the Paypal mobile app via google play store for android users or apple app store for iphone users) .
If you’re a freelancer (online teacher, blogger, graphic designer or someone who works home-based), select ”Personal Account”. If your purpose is mainly to sell online or have a number of employees working for your business, go for ”Business Account”. Signing up is free so start now and worry later. 😉
Type in the following information:
✓First Name, ✓Surname, ✓Country of Residence, ✓Phone Number, ✓Email Address, ✓Phone Number
❊You’ll be asked to confirm some information like email address (you’ll get an email confirmation) and phone number (you’ll get a code).
❊You’ll have the option to link a bank account or credit card. If you do, the money from your PP account will be transferred to your linked bank account. You can use your money by purchasing online or thru ATM withdrawal. If you don’t want to link a bank account, you can still use PP but there’ll be no option of withdrawing it thru an ATM (except if you’re from the USA where you can apply for a PP debit card/cash card).
That’s it! You can then start doing business with Paypal. Hooray!
How to Link a Bank Account to Paypal Account
You can link your bank account or credit card with eyes closed . 😀 Trust me!
First, log in to your Paypal account.
Next, find and click ”Bank Accounts and Credit Cards” or ”Banks and Cards”. Then, from there you can add your bank details. You may add or delete your typed information anytime you want.
Now that you’re done setting up an account and linking a bank account ~ what’s next?
How to Withdraw Money from Paypal Account
As long as you successfully linked your bank/card to your Paypal account~ there won’t be a problem.
Let us say~ you’re already logged in to your account and you have a Paypal Balance of $100 . Now, please follow these steps…
★Click your ”Paypal Balance”
★You’ll see ”Transfer Bank” on the bottom of the screen. Hit it!
★You’ll have an option to choose whether you’d want to transfer the PP money instantly [1% fee] or choosing standard [with zero to very nominal fee that typically takes 1-4 business days].
Assuming you chose ”instant” and the PP money is now transferred to your bank account.
★Your Paypal balance will show the remaining amount you have. That means you successfully transferred your money and now it’s ready to be pulled out from an ATM of your choice. Hallelujah!
❊If you’re from the USA, you can request for a Paypal debit card/cash card and withdraw your money from there. Otherwise, if you’re from another country ~ this option isn’t available yet. However, you can link your bank/card instead.
