How to setup PayPal Website Payment Standard

Step 1: Verify your PayPal account

Login to your PayPal account at  http://www.paypal.co.uk > Verify your account

To get Verified, PayPal asks you to provide your debit or credit card or bank or funding details. They then make sure that you are in control of your bank account or card, which helps to prevent fraud such as identity theft. Verification also enables you to:

  • Send and receive as many PayPal payments as you like
  • Easily withdraw more money from your PayPal account to your bank account

To gain Verified status, please follow the few simple steps outlined below.

  • Log in to your PayPal account
  • Click on the 'Get Verified' link under the title 'Activate Account'
  • Enter your bank details and review our Direct Debit agreement
  • PayPal will then deposit two small amounts into your bank account within five working days. Please make a note of these amounts
  • Log in to your PayPal account and tell us what these two amounts are
