How do I receive money through PayPal?

You can access the money you receive on your PayPal account home page. You can then choose to:

To accept the money, you’ll need to open a PayPal account and confirm your email address.

To add an additional layer of confidence when receiving a payment, we now provide the sender of funds the option to share a link directly with the recipient that the recipient can use to access and redeem their money.
