PayPal is so Easy to Use
I have a PayPal account, and I have to say that I love it. I have never had even one issue with PayPal that I can complain about. I have heard other people complain that they had issues with them, but I never have never had an issue at all. All the moneys I earn online comes through my PayPal account and it then goes into my checking account when I do the transaction. It takes about 3 business days for my deposit to show in my checking account when I do the transaction from PayPal to my bank.
To sign up for PayPal you go to http://www.paypal.com and fill out the online application. You will be asked to give a password. Your email address will be your user name on the site. Once you set up your account you will be asked to activate your PayPal account. You can do this by using a credit card or by giving your bank information. I gave my bank information, and PayPal deposited 2 tiny amounts of money, just a few cents, into my checking account. When the transaction was made PayPal asked me to identify how much each deposit was. When I identified how much was deposited in each deposit my account was verified.
PayPal has a free account for people in the United States. I don’t think it is free for people outside the US, but I am not totally sure about that. The reason I say it isn’t free for people outside the US is because I have a Canadian friend who is charged a fee to get her money from PayPal.
PayPal also has a business account that you can sign up for if you are running a business. My account is free and as long as my deposits do not exceed $500 at a time it will remain free. I have made over $2000 online last year and it all came through my PayPal account, and I was not charged one cent for using this service.
