Do I need to have a PayPal Account in order to make a purchase with PayPal?

No.  Signing up for a PayPal account is now optional. This means that you can complete your order, pay for it, and then decide whether to save your information for future purchases. . How do I set up a PayPal Personal Account?
Your new PayPal account will allow you to make quick and easy purchases on many commercial web sites.You can either set up your account after you make your first purchase, or you can set up your account first.

You will need to enter the following info when you sign up:

  • Name, address, phone number, and a valid email address. Your email address will be verified by PayPal and it will become your PayPal user ID.
  • You will need to create a secure password for your use. It needs to be 8 characters long and it is a good idea to combine both letters and numbers. Your password should be retained in a safe place as it will always be required when you login to your personal PayPal account.
  • Lastly, you will need to add a valid credit card to your account. In addition to the credit card number and expiration date, you will need to enter the 3-digit personal ID number located on the backside of your card in the signature strip area — the signature strip has a 4-digit number followed by a 3-digit number (use the 3-digit number).

That’s all there is to it.  Once the Credit Card has been added to your account you will be able to make online purchases of up to $1,000. Higher purchase limits are available if you add a bank account to your PayPal account. Best of all — your PayPal Account is free! Create your PayPal Account NowAre PayPal Transactions Secure?
The security of your information, transactions, and money is the core of PayPal’s business and their top priority. PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to PayPal’s using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available). Before you even register or login to PayPal, the server checks that you’re using an approved browser – one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher. Once your information reaches PayPal, it resides on a server that is heavily guarded both physically and electronically. PayPal’s servers sit behind an electronic firewall and are not directly connected to the Internet, so your private information is available only to authorized computers.

Plus, your PayPal account is insured against unauthorized transactions up to $100,000.

PayPal is the easest way to send and receive money online.
