How do I receive money through PayPal?
With PayPal, you receive money when someone sends a payment to your email address or mobile number. Once that happens, we’ll send you a message letting you know you have money available.
You can access the money you receive on your PayPal account home page. You can then choose to:
- Transfer it to your bank account, or
- Keep it in your balance to send money to friends and family or to shop online
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.
