What information is required to open a Personal PayPal account?

To open a personal PayPal account, you'll need to provide your name, address, phone number, and email address.

We also ask that you create a password for your PayPal account and choose two different security questions to answer. This information is necessary for us to protect you from loss of password, credit card fraud, or to contact you should the need come up.
