How do I make an online purchase using PayPal?

To make an online purchase with PayPal:  

  1. Simply sign up for PayPal and link a payment method like your bank, credit, and/or debit card. 
  2. When you check out online, look for the PayPal button. 
  3. Log into PayPal and speed through checkout securely with just an email and password.

You can add credit card, debit cards, and bank accounts to your digital wallet. When you click the PayPal button at checkout, you can choose any of them and skip entering your financial information. Paying online doesn't get simpler.
