Click on the link to verify and once you email address has been verified and you then set up your password. Your password should be different from your email password you used to verify your account.

After choosing a password, you add a debit/credit card where money can be withdrawn from.

The main thing that got me confounded when I first opened my Paypal account was, I thought about how I can make purchase with my PayPal account when my balance was 0.00. It was then I understood how Paypal operates by withdrawing the money from the card I added to Paypal anytime I tried to shop online from amazon, ebay, fiverr. etc.

I have used Paypal and I can guarantee that it is safe to use. How is your experience also in using a Paypal account in Nigeria
