We offer three kinds of accounts: Personal, Premier, and Business. You can only open a Personal account from the PayPal mobile app1. You can, of course, open any type of account on the website.
- Personal accounts are ideal if you shop online or if you want to send and receive money from friends and family.
- Premier accounts are for non-personal, family or household use. You have more options when you sell items online.
- Business accounts have all the features of Premier accounts plus additional services for online merchants.
Note: Account type availability depends on the country or region you live in. Receiving payments is also only available in certain countries. Please check the PayPal website.
