How to Open a Paypal Business Account

Simbla Support -

In the “Settings” section of the eCommerce App, there are various ways you can choose to accept payments from your customers. If you decide to accept money through PayPal, you’ll need to create a PayPal Business account.


Note: Depending on the laws of your country of residence, you may be required to provide various information about your business. Make sure to have all pertinent business information on hand while registering for a PayPal Business account.


When signing up for a PayPal Business account, you can choose one of two free options:


Website Payment Standard--This will redirect your customers to a new page, which will allow them to either pay with credit card or log into their PayPal account to send money.  


Express Checkout --After a customer selects their items, they simply have to log in to their PayPal account and confirm their purchase.

To sign up, enter your email address and create a password. (Note: This email address is the username you will enter when selecting PayPal as your method of accepting money on your Simbla website.)  


The next page will ask you for information about your business; mainly, the legal name and address.




Once you agree to the E-communication Delivery Policy, it may take you to a new window in which you will provide your business category, Employer Identification Number (EIN), Monthly Sales Estimate and a link to your business website.




Following this, you may have to provide some sort of identification details, such as birthday, passport number, ID number, etc.


Once you’re asked to confirm your email, your PayPal Business account has been created. Make sure to enter this email address in the Settings of your eCommerce App.
