New to PayPal? Open An Account


How can I reset my password?
Can't remember your password? We'll send you new account login codes so you can get through to your PayPal account. Start the secure process by going to the PayPal Homepage. There, click on the "forgot password" link in the Account login box and follow a few simple steps.
Why should I lift my sending limits? How should I go about it?
The maximum amount of payments you can send through PayPal when you shop online is called your sending limit. This limit is in place for your protection, and only you, the rightful account owner, can lift it by becoming verified. You can get verified by linking and confirming your credit card.
How do I confirm my email address, and why?
Confirming your email address is an important security measure. After you sign up, you'll receive an email containing a link that will take you back to Enter your password and your email address will then be confirmed.
How do I change my account preferences and account information?
  • Log into your PayPal account.
  • Click Profile at the top of the page.
  • Click the link to the account details you'd like to view or edit.
How do I use my credit card with PayPal?
It's easy. When you make or send a payment, PayPal uses your PayPal balance first to cover the payment. If your PayPal balance doesn't cover the transaction the credit card you linked to your PayPal account will be used for the payment.
