How to Open a PayPal Account

PayPal is one of the most reliable e-commerce businesses around the globe. It facilitates online transactions, money transfers and a number of other commerce related services in countries all over the world.

Opening a PayPal account is a very simple task and should not take more than a few minutes.

    Opening PayPal Personal or Premier account

    Go to the official PayPal website and click the button labelled ‘Sign Up’ which should be at the top of the PayPal homepage.

    You will now have to select the country or region in which you reside. Once that has been taken care of, choose the type of PayPal account you want to open.

    You will now be required to type your email address and then choose a password. The password you choose has to be of 8 characters or more and is case sensitive as well. Do remember the email ID and password used in this step because you will need these details later in order to sign in to your PayPal account.
