How do I receive a payment through my PayPal account?

Re: Receiving Payments



With PayPal, you receive money when someone sends a payment to your email address or mobile number. Once that happens, we’ll send you a message letting you know you have money available.

You can access your money from your PayPal account by going to the Summary page. You can then choose:

  • Transfer the funds to your bank account, or
  • Keep the funds in your PayPal account and use your available balance to send money to friends and family or to shop online

To accept the money, you’ll need to open a PayPal account and confirm your email address.


If you’re based in the US, you may have to set up PayPal Cash (or Cash Plus) in order to accept the money and hold/spend it in from your account balance.
