Paypal is an online financial service that allows you to pay for items using a secure internet platform. You add your local bank account, credit card or debit card details and whenever you pay using PayPal, you can choose which of your cards or accounts it pays with. 

In addition to paying for items using Online, you can also receive money through the service. Any money received stays in your PayPal account and can be used when paying for something, with the balance topped up by your assigned cards or bank account.

It is free to transfer money to friends or family through PayPal accounts, as long as there is no currency conversion required.

Next is password, Input a 8 character long password which must include upper and lower case letters, a number or a symbol . Then hit the continue button.

Next is Business details, the legal name is the first and last name on your ID card. Take note, we are working with details you have on the ID you wish to use in creating this account, so i am using Aje Ojo as my own name. In filling the business name, input the name you wish to use as your business name. I’m using Aje Limited for the sake of this tutorial.

Then tick on the small box as the name you want your customers to see. Next is phone number, you choose Nigeria as a country, input your active number. Reason has been that most times, when you try to login, for security reasons, a code will be sent to your number. I suggest you use an active number you have access to.

Business address is the address you have on your ID; in this tutorial I used no 12 Aje street

The additional information is optional, skip it
