  2. Choose your country first and then your language.

  3. Select your account type (Premier Accounts for casual sellers or Business accounts for businesses). Learn more about account types.

  4. Enter your contact information and credit card details. (Remember you information iw secure with PayPal. We never share your financial information with 3rd parities you don’t know– including between other eBay buyers and sellers.)

  5. After you enter your contact information and credit card details, you will be asked to link and confirm your credit card by clicking ‘Save and Continue’. This starts the verification process and authorises a S$3.00 charge to your credit card to generate a 4-digit PayPal code.

Please remember to login to your PayPal account once you’ve retrieved your code to complete the verification process.

    Note: You will be refunded the S$3.00 upon successfully entering your code in your PayPal account. 

    Having a verified PayPal account increases your security, as wells as the amounts you can send and withdraw with PayPal. Plus, you’ll be able to sell items internationally. Learn more about PayPal verification.
