3 Simple Steps to Starting a PayPal Account

September 4, 2013

Setting up a Paypal account can give you access to many useful tools you can use to help collect donations for your animal shelter. There are a few steps that you must follow in order to create your account. Here is a quick rundown of everything you have to do to get your Paypal up and running.

Your first step is going to be to go to eBay.com. In the top right corner, click on the button that says sign up. On the first page of the application, you are asked for personal information about where you live and what you intend to use Paypal for. Once you click on get started, more places to put personal information appear. If you do not have an e-mail address, you may have to make one. Once you have completed all of these and clicked on the check box at the bottom, press agree and create account.

Once your account is all set up and ready to go, you need to attach a bank account to it so you can withdraw money. Log on to your eBay account and look for the text that says withdraw. Put your cursor over it and click on transfer to bank account from the menu that appeared. Now you simply need to press add bank account and have your bank account information handy. Your routing number and account number should be all the information you need. Enter these values and click on continue. You should be good to go after you confirm all of your information. Remember to not give out the password to your eBay account because access to your eBay account gives access to your bank account.

You should be good to go. All you will have to do to accept a payment is give the person interested in donating to your animal shelter your e-mail address. They can log on to their Paypal account and send you money that way. Enjoy this great bit of technology that has revolutionized the way people shop online.
