1. At the PayPal Account Sign Up page, make sure the Personal Account option is selected.
2. Select your country from the list and click the Continue button.
3. Start building a PayPal profile by filling in the fields shown on the Account Sign Up page.
The information you need to give PayPal includes
• Your first name, last name, and full
address, including city, state, zip code, and country. PayPal requires a
zip code for U.S. accounts, but may not require one if you create an
International PayPal account.
• Your home telephone number for verification purposes; you have the option of entering a work number.
• Your e-mail address. You need to enter this twice so PayPal can ensure you didn't mistype it the first time.
• A password to use with your PayPal account.
• This password must
be at least eight characters long and is case-sensitive. (This means you
need to pay attention to whether you use uppercase and/or lowercase
characters when you create your password. PayPal won't accept PASSWORD123 as a valid password if you typed password123
as your password when you created your account.) Just as you did when
you entered your e-mail address, you need to type your password a second
time. Picking a password that you don't use with other accounts you may
have is also important. If you pick your e-mail password to use as your
PayPal password and your e-mail password is compromised, you may find
someone making unauthorized use of your funds! It's better to be safe
and think up a unique password.
• You are asked to pick two questions from a
list of four security questions. The answers you give to these questions
are used to verify your identity if you lose or forget your password.
• Deciding whether you want to open a Personal
or Premier account. The big advantage of having a Premier account is
that you can accept credit card payments from people who don't have or
use a PayPal account.
that you read both documents before checking the Yes option, indicating
that you agree to the terms. Knowing what can or may happen to your
account is important before transferring your money into the account.
• PayPal also asks you to indicate that you
understand your rights with regard to the arbitration of claims as
outlined in the Legal Disputes section of the User Agreement. A link is
provided to the document, which describes how legal disputes should be
handled in the event that there are problems between you and PayPal. As
with any legal document, you should read the whole thing before signing
and contact a lawyer if you're unsure as to what the document means.
• You have one final security step to go
through before the account opens. PayPal displays a sequence of
characters in a box with a boxed background. You must type in the
characters, exactly as shown, in a text box to the right of the
sequence. This step is to prevent automated programs from trying to sign
up for PayPal accounts. Although a program can fill out the fields on
the Account Sign Up page, it can't read the sequence and type it into
• If you are visually
impaired, you can still type the correct character sequence into the
box, even if you can't read the characters as shown against the
background. Click the Help link displayed at the end of the
"Security Measure" paragraph to open the PayPal Registration Security
Help page. At the end of the page is a listen to the security characters
link. Click the link to hear an audio clip that says the characters
aloud. You can then type the characters into the box correctly to finish
the registration process. In the case of these security characters, it
doesn't matter whether you type in the letters as uppercase or
lowercase, as long as you get the letters and numbers in the correct
4. Click the Sign Up link at the bottom of the page to submit your registration information.
After filling out the registration form, you're
taken to a page that tells you the process is almost complete except for
the confirmation of your e-mail address. After you click the Sign Up
link from the previous screen, PayPal sends you an e-mail.
5. Open your e-mail program and look for an e-mail from PayPal.
If your e-mail inbox is anything like mine, you have to search hard to find the PayPal e-mail amidst all the spam. Look for an e-mail from email@example.com with a subject heading of "Activate Your PayPal Account!"
6. Click the Click here to activate your account link,
which can be found in the body of the e-mail. (Alternatively, you can
copy the link and paste it into the address bar of your browser.)
Clicking the link takes you to a page where you
are prompted to enter the password you designated when you registered
for the account.
7. Type your password and click the Confirm button.
Congratulations! You just opened your PayPal account.
