How To Create a PayPal Account
1: First of all … What is PayPal?
Many users, when making their payments via the web, would have found the PayPal logo next to the credit cards. What is PayPal?
Some time ago there was a perception that making payments online was too insecure. Although today, this idea is still present in the minds of some users, PayPal is born to eradicate these fears and create an easy and secure way to pay and receive online payments without sharing financial information.
This banking information or financial information will be safe, all thanks to an automatic encryption system and advanced systems against fraud that the company is responsible for continuously updating.
How to create a PayPal account
1. Sign up
To create a PayPal account, go to their website www.paypal.com, and click on “Create Account”. Select your country, language, and click on the “Create Account” button again.
Fill in all your data, and click “Accept and create an account.” Enter the security code that they ask for, which would be sent to the mobile number you used, and press the “Continue” button.
2. Choose your payment method
Next, you must choose if you are going to want to pay for your purchases with your credit or debit card, or with your bank account. Choose the payment method, and click on continue, and enter the information requested.
This will be the only time that PayPal will ask for your payment information, and these data will NEVER be seen by the people to whom you pay with PayPal. When you have entered them, they will ask you for confirmation to create your PayPal account. Click on the “Accept” button.
3. You already have a PayPal account!
Congratulations!! You have already created your PayPal account. If you have chosen as a payment method through a card, you can start buying everything you want.
If you have put your bank account as payment, PayPal will send you in a few days some small amounts of money that you will have to enter and enter in your account to confirm it.
To verify this, you only have to enter your email and password in PayPal, and select “Confirm bank account”. Write the numbers of the transfers you have received (if you got $ 0.10, write 0.10) and done!
What is the use of having a PayPal account?
• To buy online without anyone being able to see what your bank details are
• To receive money online (charge) if you sell products or services
• To send money to friends, family, quickly (instantly), avoiding the large fees sometimes charged by banks for these same money transfers
Is PayPal safe?
If you are one of those who asks if PayPal is safe, I will tell you that it is currently the safest online payment method that can be. No one sees your payment information, so they cannot steal, forge or fraud with your bank account or card.
And if you make a purchase with PayPal, but there is a problem (they do not send your product, you have received it in bad condition, etc.) you can claim the seller through PayPal and, if you are right, they will refund your money.
How to login to your PayPal account

Note: The email and password you are going to fill in on the login page are the ones you used to create the PayPal account.
