Guide by : MurphMan B)

Personal accounts:
Pros: No transaction fees on payments received via PayPal Balance, PayPal Instant Transfer, or PayPal eCheck.
Cons: Can only receive a limited number of credit card payments; limited customer support (no toll-free number and long wait times); $500 per month limit on receiving money.
Ideal User: Online shoppers who do not spend large sums of money.
Premier accounts:
Pros: Toll-free customer service number; can accept unlimited credit card payments; eligible to apply for PayPal ATM/Debit Card, which allows direct access to your PayPal account instead of waiting for funds to transfer to your bank account.
Cons: Transaction fees to receive payments via PayPal.
Ideal User: Individual online sellers.
Business accounts:
Pros: Same as Premier; ability to have multiple users access same account; can operate under business name.
Cons: Same as Premier.
Ideal User: Business owners.


~ Your best option is Personal, unless you plan to buy & sell online ~

Posted Image

~ If you choose option Premier or Business, here is a Paypal Fee Calculator to help you figure out how much fee's will be. Paypal Fee Calculator ~

- Enter the requested information, Agree & Create Account -

Posted Image

~ Once you have entered the requested information, selected "Agree And Create Account". You'll receive a confirmation email from Paypal. Click on the link in the email. Sign into your account with the password you set up. ~

Posted Image

~ You should now be logged onto your Paypal Account, this is your account home page. Under "My Account" Tab, Select "Profile", this is your main account settings, but also how you fund your Paypal Account.~

Posted Image

~ You have two options to Fund your Paypal Account, Bank Account or Credit/Debit Card ~

- Let's look at Option 1 : Add a Bank Account in the United States -

- Gather your bank information, including your account and routing numbers.
- Go to PayPal and sign into your account.
- Click on the "Add Bank Account" link.
- Fill in the requested information.
- PayPal will make two small deposits to your bank account, approximately three days after you enter the information.
- Check your bank statements for the deposits.
- Return to your account page and click on the "Confirm Bank Account" link.
- Enter the amount of the deposits to confirm the account.

~ Once your Bank Account is confirmed, you will be able to add funds (My Accounts/Add Funds) from Bank Account to Paypal. Takes 3-5 days to Transfer ~

Posted Image

- Now let's take a look at Option 2 : Add Credit or Debit Card (If you wish to send money immediately, this is the best option) -

- Go to PayPal and sign into your account.
- Click on the "Add Credit Card" link.
- Fill in the requested information.
- Enter your "Billing Address". The address displayed on your Statements, basically "YOUR" address that which the card is under (Home Address)
- Click "Add Card" at the bottom of the page.


Posted Image

~ After you have chosen the method for which you wish to fund your Paypal Account, you are now able to "Send Money" :) ~

- To send money directly to someone, login to your PayPal account and click the Send Money tab.
- Enter the email address or phone number of the recipient, the amount you want to send, and the currency you want to use.
- Mark what the money is for, and then click Continue.
- Review your payment information, and then confirm the transfer.

Nice guide. I never knew about the $500 limit though, how does that work when people buy used guns for more than $500?

Yes, you have $500 limit when receiving money on a personal account. Once you go over $500 in a month, paypal will automatically upgrade you to premier or business. The bad thing is you get charged fee's when receiving money. Basically if you plan to buy & sell online, your better off going with a premier account.

Can you add like those already charged credit card things from like 7-11 onto your PayPal? That's the only way I'd be able to join the Player's Club

Since I live in Canada I was just wondering how the exchange rate would effect how much money I send for the player's club fee. I think in one of your picture I saw the option to choose the currency I was sending. Does that mean I could select 30 dollars American and as long as I have enough Canadian money to cover the exchange?

I have a question. Say I have a basic account and I want to spend over 500 dollars on something. Will it still let me send the payment and just automatically upgrade my account later?

Any money being received will be deposited into your Paypal Account.

It should only upgrade your account if you receive more than $500 a month.

If your adding a debit card, the transaction will be made through your debit card. Money will be sent from your bank account through paypal and then to whom you are paying. Just like when you use a debit card at a store. Your basically holding your bank account in your pocket, you don't have to write a check and wait for it to process.

When I first signed up with Paypal I had to add my bank account since I didn't have a debit card. I would always have to send money from my checking account to my paypal account which would take 3-5 days. Now that I have a debit card, its automatically taken out and don't have to wait anymore.

The money will be sent to your Paypal Account and will stay there until you withdrawal or use it to pay for something.

Is there a fee to withdraw from your paypal and put the money back on the card? How does that work?

There's no fee to withdraw money from your Paypal account.

You can transfer funds to your bank account or if you have a Paypal debit card, you can use it like any other debit card, takes the money out of your paypal account.
