What is Paypal?

PayPal is an online money transfer service. It is widely used for secure transactions over the Internet. The company that operates it is the same as eBay, so most eBay purchases are paid via PayPal.

Before you begin any account creation process, you need to have a credit or debit card.

The different between the credit and debit card is that in the credit you do not have to have money in, as long as the cost of your purchases does not exceed its limit. The debit card is associated with a bank account in which if you have money and it is enough to cover the purchase cost then the required amount is transferred normally and without any problems. Both cards serve you, only that debit is safer because you only buy with whatever you have money without fear of overcharging.

Create a PayPal account

Step 1: Go to and the “Sign Up” link. Do not ever use links located on a website to get to the PayPal website. Always type your service address in your Browser to be sure you will not be the victim of phishing.

Step 2: Select the country you are staying with and the type of account that suits you best. In the case that we are only going to make purchases from the internet we choose the formula, Paypal For You. We press the “Get Started” button to give us further details.

Step 3: We fill in our valid figures as shown in the picture below, we read the PayPal Terms of Use and click on the “Agree and Create Account” button.

Confirm Email Address.
Step 4: Once you click on the “Agree and Create Account” button, we’ll go to another page that we ignore. At the same time, PayPal will have sent you an email with some of the necessary information you will need at this step, so open the message to access them immediately. From the menu, top left, go to the “My Account” button. In the right column, select “Confirm email address”

Step 5: Go to the email that came to you from PayPal and find an activation code that looks like CONFIRMATION CODE and is in the form, XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX. Copy it and paste it into the window that appeared to you on the PayPal Web site after clicking on the “Confirm email account” link. Follow the pictures below.

Step 6: After Step 5, you’ll see a form as shown below, in which you must choose two security questions and give answers that only you will know. Fill in the form and click “Submit”.

If everything went as it should your email has been confirmed. Ignore the page that appeared after clicking on the “Submit” button and go back to the menu and “My Account” button. Let’s explain a few things to the next picture.

Credit or Debit Card Statement.
Step 7: Time to declare our Card. Go to “Link and confirm my debit or credit card” is in the right column, as shown in the above figure of Step 6. Once you click on the “Link and confirm my debit or credit card” button you will see a page as in the picture below . Fill in your Card details and click “Continue”. Do not worry is absolutely safe! The page is encrypted and the possibility of being intercepted is blocked.

If your Card is accepted by PayPal, the message shown below will appear. Now you need to go to the nearest Banking Bank from which your Card has been issued and request the Movement of that card account. There you will find a fee of 1.5 Euros from PayPal which money will be returned to your first purchase. You will find a four-digit number as a charging description. This is the number you require to confirm that you are the holder of it.

Step 8: Once you’ve walked to the bank and got your four-digit verification code, sign in to the PayPal account you created and go to the left column and the “Confirm my debit or credit card” link.

In the new window that appears, type the four-digit confirmation code and press “Confirm Card.

Step 9: That was, there are no steps but we’re over and you’re ready to make your purchases online and securely. All you will need to pay is your email and the password of your PayPal account. Keep your password secure and do not share it with anyone, even with PayPal itself.
