Как зарегистрироваться на PayPal?

How to register with PayPal in order to be able to pay for purchases not only with a credit card? Here is a detailed instruction.

PayPal registration, as well as sending payments, is free. In order to register on the site, you need only two things:
- a valid email, preferably on an American platform (gmail.com, yahoo.com)
- a credit card with a positive balance.
To register on PayPal, you need to go to PayPal.com and click the Register button.

You will be taken to a page where the system will first ask you to choose your country (here you have to tell the truth!), enter your email, and come up with a password.

After that you will be taken to a page where you will be prompted to enter your personal data. The form is quite simple and there should be no problems to fill it out.
All items are required.

Here you need to enter your first name, last name, date of birth (dd/mm/yyyy), indicate your citizenship and home address. Then fill in your city, region, ZIP code and phone number. Then select the checkbox that you agree to the service terms of use.

On the next page, you will be asked to enter debit card details to be used for payments via PayPal. If there are no funds on the card, at least a few dollars, it is better to postpone registration until you have some since PayPal will not be able to verify the card by blocking 1 dollar in your account.

Credit card number: enter the number shown on the front of your credit card. Without spaces. The service will determine what type of card it is.
Expiration Date: the expiration date of the card. Usually indicated on the title side of the card.
CSC: verification code (also called CVV2). These are the last 3 digits on the back of the card. If there is no number on the card, please contact your bank.

For the successful completion of registration, you need to click Add Card.

If the card was successfully authorized, or even if it was rejected, you will be asked to complete the next step: confirm your email address you indicated in the registration form.

Check your inbox in the email box you specified when registering, find an email from PayPal with the subject “Activate your new account” and click “Confirm my email address”. You will be taken to the PayPal website, where you will also need to enter the password selected when registering for confirmation.

If the link does not work, go to your PayPal account and select “Confirm your email” in the task list tab.
On the next page in Step 2, select “Click this link if the button in the email does not work” and enter the confirmation number from the email you received.

If you have not received the email, you can request the activation number again through your account.
The process of card verification is quite simple. USD 1.95 is withdrawn from your card (this money will be returned to the card or balance). You will need to find a 4-digit code in the bank statement for the transaction. It will look something like “1234PayPal – * EXPUSE”, and the first 4 digits is the code you need to enter on the PayPal website. You can find out this code through Internet banking, by calling the bank’s support service, having received a statement of card operations, or, if you have SMS banking connected, the information will immediately come as an SMS message.

After card verification, you can start shopping on sites that accept payment through PayPal, for example on eBay.

What bank card can be used to pay for goods in American online stores?

To pay for goods in an American online store, it is best to issue a personal VISA or MasterCard bank card. It does not matter if it is in hryvnia or a foreign currency. To increase the security, our experts recommend choosing a chip card if your bank provides such service. Moreover, we recommend you to have a separate credit card for such payments and keep only the amount allocated for shopping there.

How do I pay for my purchase on eBay?

It is logical to assume that you definitely need a plastic or virtual payment card with an option to pay for purchases on the Internet. If you have such a card, you are already halfway done.

Are payment methods oneBay available to you if your card is issued by a Ukrainian bank?

  1. Pay on eBay with PayPal

What is the advantage of this method? It smartly hides your data. The security system is constantly updated, of which the service constantly reminds users in its newsletters. In order to link your card, you must first remove the ban on making purchases on the Internet and connect SMS and Internet banking if your bank offers it.

The only bad thing is that it has its own vision of the hryvnia/dollar exchange rate, so it can add a few hryvnias on the dollar if you pay with a hryvnia card.

  1. Pay on eBay directly with a plastic or virtual card. The rate will also differ slightly from your bank’s, but not for several hryvnias. At first glance, this method is easier, but there are several drawbacks. You share your card details with the seller. But if the seller is a legal entity, a brand with a bunch of positive reviews, you shouldn’t worry. Most sellers still prefer PayPal, which they state in the information about stores and goods. So, if you need to buy something from such a seller, you cannot avoid connecting to PayPal.

Of course, such a small choice of payment methods is a bit discouraging, but any choice option is already good.

We hope you find our tips on how to pay for your purchases on eBay helpful.
