How to Set Up a PayPal Account – Get Started

Create Your PayPal Account

Signing up for a PayPal merchant account is an easy procedure. But make sure you have your details ready.

Link your Credit/Debit Card

Linking a credit card and debit card takes only a few minutes. 

Pay with PayPal

Now that you have set up your PayPal merchant account, you can pay online in seconds, safely, & securely.

Pro-Tip: Activate your card for international payments

Firstly, Make sure to link a valid card to your PayPal merchant account. We accept cards across all leading banks and networks.

Before linking, check if your bank accepts international transactions via PayPal.

STEP 2: Create your login details

Make sure you get your personal information is correct when you sign up for your PayPal merchant account.

To confirm whether your account is set up correctly or not- always use the correct National ID or passport number. If you’re a Mainland China Resident, you must use your name in Chinese characters from your National Chinese ID. Pinyin is not allowed. If you’re a non-Mainland China Resident, you can use your full name from your International passport.

Let us know the email address & the password you want to use. These will be what you require to log into your PayPal account in the future, so make sure to choose a strong password only you know.

If you have already got a business account set up, you will need to set up your new account with a personal email address, bank account, & credit card, or debit card. You can also choose to upgrade your PayPal account to a business one if you do not already have one.

STEP 3: Tell us more about yourself

Let us know more details such as your name, date of birth, address, & contact details. Confirm the details are the same as those in your National ID or passport & check the box to accept our Terms and Conditions.

Link a credit or debit card to your PayPal account not only saves you time when you shop online but safeguards your financial data & purchases against potential fraud. You can link your credit or debit cards to start shopping instantly.

STEP 5: Verify your email address

Once you create your account, we will send you an email to confirm your email address. We will also email you each time you make a payment. So, you can easily track your shopping.

Press on Confirm Email Address to verify your email address on our network. And now it’s done, you now have your PayPal account set up and ready to go!
