Setup Paypal Verified Business Account

The first step is to go to and set up a verified business account. In case you aren’t familiar with it, PayPal was originally created in order to facilitate payments on eBay. It is still owned by eBay but has branched out far beyond eBay. PayPal is now used by many niche marketers as a merchant payment processing system. It allows merchants to accept payments using credit cards and other PayPal accounts without having to qualify for and set up a regular merchant account.

There are no special requirements to set up a business account. You just have to make that choice as you sign up. You can be an individual “doing business as” a company name you choose or you can do business using your own name. Once you have signed up, PayPal will ask you to verify the account. To do this, you will connect a checking account with the PayPal account. PayPal will guide you through this process which is relatively simple.

The easiest way is to sign up with one of several services that marketers use to handle instant payments and then simply look through the available products to find one to promote.
