How to set up a PayPal account?

What is PayPal?

PayPal is an online payment system that’s been around since 1998, making it easy to send and receive funds to people located anywhere in the world for a small fee — or no fee at all if the money is going to or coming from a friend or family member in the U.S. 


If you don’t yet have a PayPal account but would like to set one up, doing so is free and should only take a few minutes. Once you set up, you’ll be able to add banking information to make sending and receiving money more accessible than ever. Here’s how to do it. 


How to set up a PayPal account?

1. Go to or download the PayPal app from the App Store or Google Play.

2. Click the blue “Sign Up” button.

3. Select “Business Account” if you’re using this to buy and sell online, for instance, or to send money to a family member or friend, then choose “personal account.”

4. Add your phone number, and you’ll receive a text with a security code to enter on the next screen.

5. Enter your legal first and last name, email address, and a secure password.

6. Then, enter your mailing address and agree to PayPal’s privacy policy.

7. Finally, add a credit card, debit card, or bank account to your PayPal account.

8. And your PayPal account will be created. 

PayPal lets you pay for your favorite things at millions of online stores in the U.S. and across 203 global markets—all without the hassle of converting currency. So it’s just as easy to know how much you’re spending as it is to finish it.

In addition to one-time purchases, PayPal is also the faster, more straightforward way to make recurring payments to all your monthly bills and subscriptions.

If you have never opened a PayPal account, go ahead and create one today!
