Getting Started

With PayPal, buyers can pay you instantly, without sharing financial details. The money goes straight to your PayPal account, for you to withdraw or spend.

When you’re paid with PayPal, automatic fraud screening and PayPal Seller Protection help keep you and your customers safe.

To get started, you’ll first need to sign up for a PayPal Business account.

Set-up PayPal

Link your PayPal and eBay accounts

With your PayPal account set up, it’s time to link it to your eBay account.

Go to My eBay > Account > PayPal Account, select Link My PayPal Account and log in to PayPal.

Make sure you check your PayPal email address is correct before linking, especially if you signed up to PayPal with a different email address to the one you use for eBay.

PayPal Verification

Once you've confirmed your identity with both eBay and PayPal, you're verified. That means you can raise your withdrawal limits, and sell internationally.

To do this, log in to your PayPal account and follow the instructions on the Summary page to complete your profile. You're fully verified once your profile is at 100%.
