After reading the book How Come That Idiot’s Rich and I’m Not? I’m totally committed to setting up my own business. One of the requirements for that is to have a business account with someone like Paypal, because its very easy to handle all your online invoicing and payments. Paypal is secure, reliable and most important of all – easy to use. It is used for almost every single website to make a purchase, like shopping, paying rent and paying bills.
When you signup for PayPal, you can start accepting credit card payments instantly. As the world’s number one online payment service, PayPal is the fastest way to open your doors to over 230 million member accounts worldwide.
Here’s how to set up a Paypal account for your business.
1. Print out these instructions
2. Click here to Set Up Paypal Business Account
3. Scroll down and click where it says: “sign up today”
4. Choose whether you want a personal, premier or business account
If this account is for your business, you should choose Premier Account or Business Account
Here’s the only difference: a Paypal Business Account allows you to set up the account under your business name, much like a merchant services company. But you need to have a business bank account and wait for your Paypal Business Account to be approved.
If you don’t have a business bank account but you want your Paypal account under your business name, here’s how to get around it: sign up for a Premier Account, but instead of putting your name in the name field, put your business name. For example, if your business name is Acme Consulting, put “Acme” in the “first name” box and “Consulting” in the surname box.
5. Choose your country
6. Click Continue
7. Fill in all your info (see note above about business name)
8. Click Continue
After your account is set up you can pay someone by Paypal, or request payment (send an invoice) just by going to www.paypal.com and logging in to your account. It’s very easy to use PayPal.
