What is my PayPal account number?

Your PayPal account is not identified by an account number or ID. Your account is identified by the email address that you log in with.

To receive funds using your PayPal account, you can ask the sender to send the payment to the confirmed email address registered on your PayPal account.

You will receive an email notification once the payment is sent.
