Set up your account

To use the PayPal Express Checkout, you need to sign up for a new account with PayPal. If you don't have a PayPal account with the email address you used to set up your store, then you can add your email address to your existing PayPal account.

When you set up a new PayPal account you need to verify your business information, and complete the Know Your Customer (KYC) procedure. If you have any questions about creating your account, then contact PayPal Customer Support.
