The first step to make a PayPal account will be to access the web page of this service, by writing in your web browser the address: //

Once inside the web, you must go to the upper right area and click on the "Create account" button.


Next, you must choose which type of PayPal account you wish to create:

  • Personal account
  • Business Account

If you are going to make a particular use, you must choose the first option, while if you need the PayPal account for your company, you will have to opt for the second one.


In our case, we are going to register a personal PayPal account, so the next step will be to enter the email address, choose a password and fill in the verification code field that appears on the screen. Finally, we will click on the "Continue" button to continue with the process.


The following data that we must fill out are the personal ones, that is, our full name, postal address and mobile phone number. Also, we must check the box of acceptance of the conditions of use and privacy policy of PayPal.

It is very important that you make sure everything is correct before clicking on the "Accept and continue" button.


Next, we will see the screen that asks for the details of the bank card that you want to link to your PayPal account in order to make purchases and payments. Once you have created your account, you can also add other cards to choose how you want to pay.


At this time, we should also receive an e-mail from PayPal to the email account we have registered. From there you must activate your account, either by clicking on the yellow "Activate" button or by logging in and entering the code that has been provided to you in this email.


When activating the PayPal account, you will be redirected to your web browser to confirm the password you have chosen and verify that the registration process and the creation of your account are being correctly followed.


You should also choose the security questions that PayPal will ask you in case you forget your password one day. You need to select both questions and fill in the two answers, not just one. In turn, you must choose your nationality in the drop-down menu and then you can send the information using the yellow button.


And that's all! At this moment you will have created your PayPal account and you will be able to consult the data with which you have made the registration and, at the same time, start making purchases and payments through this fast and convenient service.
