Signing up for PayPal Here

Sign up for PayPal Here online or simply download the free PayPal Here app and set up your account – you can order the card reader at the same time, or at any later time via the PayPal Here web store.


Typically the application approval process will be carried out immediately when you sign up for PayPal Here via our website or app. Make sure to enter your personal and business details correctly to speed up the process. Note that we require the home address of the account holder as part of the application.

Application review

In some cases we need to manually review your application and will ask you to upload additional documents like a Proof of Address or Proof of ID. We will let you know during the application process if this applies to you. If this happens, simply log on to your PayPal account via paypal.co.uk and click on the notification in your account (or go to the Resolution Centre) for further instructions. Contact the Customer Care team via 0800 358 9448 or 020 8080 6500* if you have any questions about the application process.

Card reader returns

If you purchased a PayPal Here Card Reader from PayPal, and your application was declined, contact the Customer Care team via 0800 358 9448 or 020 8080 6500* for instructions on how to return the item. If you return the card reader within 30 days of receipt of delivery, we will issue you with a full refund once you have returned the card reader. Make sure it’s undamaged, in good working order and in the original packaging.
