How to setup a Business Account with PayPal:

Why use Paypal?

Paypal is recognized by millions of people who use their service everyday. They are owned by eBay and provide secure transaction processing very easily for the normal web user. WE strongly recommend visiting the PayPal website to review information about their services.
  Sign up for PayPal and start accepting credit card payments instantly.

For our customers we recommend using PayPal's Merchant tools to begin accepting credit payments easily and immediately. PayPal can get you started with very low transactions fees (2.2%-2.9% + $0.30 USD) and proivde you with many tools to get your payment processing up and running very quickly. They have a shopping cart available for your use that is a great tool for those wanting to start an E-Commerce site. Here how you can get a business account set up in about 10 minutes to begin accepting credit card payments through your website.

First of all, visit PayPal by clicking on the logo above. Once you get to the Paypal site cllick on the Sign Up link at the top of the page. This will ask you for what type of account you want. If you are starting a Business and operating it as a DBA and have registered the comapny name you will want to setup the account as a business account. If you are starting a Sole Proprietor and/or starting a business but do not have it registered you should setup a Premier Personal account.

If you are going to run your website as a business, we would recommend setting up a Business account with Paypal so that it will identify you as a business entity instead of your personal name when payments are made to your account.

Once you have selected to set up a business account you will be presented a form to complete. This form has the Business Name and Address info, the Customer service and email info and the Business owner/contact info.

After completing this information and clicking the Continue button you will see the information to setup your business email account, password, and security questions. You must provide a valid email address here. Your account confirmation information will be emailed to this email account.

You should read the User Agreement and Privacy Policy Thoroughly and if you do not understand it you should seek the advice of an attorney. The forms asks if you agree to these. Lastly, you will need to enter the code shown at the bottom of the page and click the SignUp button to create your account.

You will now see a confirmation page. PayPal has now emailed to you your confirmation information and a link to click on to activate your account. Click on the link which will open a webpage where you will be prompted to enter your password. Once you do this Paypal will state that you have confirmed your account and ask you to add you bank account information.

This information does not have to be completed at this time but it is required once you do begin receiving payments so that PayPal can make the deposits to you. If you cllick the Cancel button at the bottom of the page it will take you to your account overview page. At this point your account is setup and ready for use. It's that easy and it's free.

You can close your account by clicking on the Profile link near the top right of your information and then click the close account then click the Continue button. They will ask you some information about why you want to close your account. Click the Continue button to finish closing your account.
