How much does it cost to open a PayPal Business Account?

It's free to sign up for an account. PayPal merchant account fees only apply to transactions—which means you only start paying when you start selling. There are no set-up costs, monthly fees, or cancellations fees.

I've seen lower rates elsewhere. Why should I choose PayPal?

It's important to look at the TOTAL cost of processing credit cards. Other companies often publish discounted "show" rates, but you still get hit with cancellation charges, extra fees for accepting reward cards and corporate cards, and so on. We're upfront with you about all our fees.

Will my customers pay any fees?

It's free to pay with PayPal. There is a 4.5% charge for any currency conversion. See our Consumer Fees Page.

Do I qualify for a discount?

It's worth finding out. Businesses often save money with our lower rates. Discounts apply to businesses with larger sales volumes or smaller transactions. See Discounts.

Does it cost any extra to withdraw money from my PayPal account?

There’s no charge to withdraw money from your PayPal balance to your US bank account. You can also withdraw your funds via check for a small fee of $11 per check. Withdraw your money now.
