Simple Guide: How To Create and Verify Your PayPal Account


PayPal has solidified itself as the payment system of choice for anyone doing business on the Internet.  When people first started doing business over the Internet, you would have thought that some sort of convenient credit-card payment system would have been the system of choice. However, the collective greediness of the major credit card processors created a gap online, where businesses without a lot of available cash flow needed an inexpensive way to offer potential online customers with a fast and convenient way to pay for things online.

When you start working online, you need a mode to send and receive payment. Usually you can use your credit card or debit card to make payment online but to receive Payment, you need to take help of services like PayPal, Google Wallet. PayPal has been one of the oldest and trusted service to send and receive Payment. Especially if you are from Asia or United States you will find PayPal service to be the best when it comes to receiving Payment from overseas.

All you need to do is add your bank account. Then Paypal will transfer two small deposits. Verify these deposits by entering them on the PayPal website. After that just need to answer a confirmation phone call from PayPals authentication service that validates your information, once done with this step you will be verified.

If you prefer to not use your bank account, you can verify using a credit card. To do this you just provide PayPal with your info, they will then make two very small charges to your card. After you see the charges, go back to the PayPal website and enter the amounts of the charges as well as the code that will appear on your credit card statement.
