How do I sign up for a PayPal account if I made a purchase using PayPal as an unregistered user?

To sign up for a PayPal account, locate the email receipt for your past purchase. In that email, click the "Save My Information" link to register with PayPal.
If you no longer have your email, please call us by following the steps below and we will resend the email receipt.
  1. Click the Help at the top of the page.
  2. Click the Call Customer Support.
If you do not see a "Save My Information" link in the email, PayPal recognizes you as an existing customer.
