How do I set up my PayPal QR code?

What are PayPal QR code payments?

QR code payments allow you to get paid in person with PayPal just by displaying your QR code for customers to scan using the PayPal app.

Do customers need additional apps to scan my PayPal QR code?

No, customers just need the PayPal app to scan the QR code.  

How do I set up my PayPal QR code?

If you downloaded your QR code directly, then you're already set up. You can start using your code to receive payments straight away.

If you ordered printed QR codes, then you'll first need to scan each code you received to permanently link it to your account. After that, you're all set.

Remember, you can't use your code to send payments to yourself, so if you scan your code after it's already been linked to your account, you'll get a message letting you know that your code is already set up.
