What is PayPal?
It’s a service that allows you to pay online—using money in your PayPal account, your bank account, or with a credit card—anywhere a merchant displays a PayPal checkout button.
If you make purchases online, but you worry about identity theft, try to use PayPal, instead of a credit card. In addition, it will limit the number of people who have access to your confidential information and keep you safer.
How to create an account?
Step 1 Visit PayPal.com
Visit the PayPal website and sign up for an account using a valid email address.
Step 2 Activate the account
Activate the account by opening the automatically generated email sent to your inbox, clicking on the link in the email, and entering your password.
Step 3 Link your cards
Link your credit or debit card from the Account Profile Page by entering the card number, security code, and your billing address.
Step 4 Link your bank account
Link your checking account through the profile page of your PayPal account by providing your account and routing numbers.
Linking a bank account allows you to transfer funds from PayPal to your bank and from your bank to your PayPal account. It is not mandatory, but recommended.
Step 5 Confirm bank account
Confirm the bank account by checking your statement for two small deposits made by PayPal. Enter the deposit amounts at your account page to finalize the process.
