How do I receive money through PayPal?
With PayPal, you receive money when someone pays to your email address or mobile number. Once that happens, we’ll send you a message letting you know you have money available.
You can access the money you receive on your PayPal account home page. You can then choose to:
- Transfer it to your bank account, or
- Keep it in your balance to send money to friends and family or to shop online
To add an additional layer of confidence when receiving payment, we now provide the sender of funds the option to share a link directly with the recipient that the recipient can use to access and redeem their money.
