Can I view payments I made before opening a full account?
Yes. Once you open a PayPal account, you can view transactions you made as an unregistered PayPal user.
When you sent your payment through PayPal, you received an email receipt. If you still have access to that receipt, just open the email and click the Sign Up Now link to sign up for a PayPal account. If you no longer have the email receipt, visit https://www.paypal.com/signup. Or contact us and we'll resend the receipt.
Once you've opened your account, you can find a record of your previous transactions by going to your Activity page..
Note: In order to view your transactions, you must register the credit card number used to make the purchase.
