Does it cost money to open a PayPal account?

There's no charge to open a PayPal account and to transfer money from your bank account to your PayPal account. There's also no charge to purchase items using your PayPal account.

There are fees in other cases, such as receiving payments for goods and services. Learn more about PayPal seller fees.
