Complete your account set up to send and receive money

Welcome to PayPal! As a new customer, we want to give you some additional information to help you finish setting up your account so you can send and receive money:

You need to confirm your email address before you can send or receive money
If you haven’t already confirmed your email address, please complete this process, as we must confirm your email address before you can send or receive money.  Confirming your email address is quick and easy—we’ll send you a link to verify you’re the owner of the email address. Here’s how to confirm your email address.

Now you’re ready to send money or pay for items online
With PayPal you can send money or pay for items online with the payment method of your choice.  Learn how to send money.
