History of PayPal

PayPal as we know it today wasn't created overnight. Let's trace PayPal's history and find out how it all started.
1998,Oct-Nov: It all started with digital wallets
Max Levchin and Peter Thiel launch a security focused company which allows users to store encrypted information on PDA devices, enabling the digital wallet. Their theory is that this is safer than real cash in a wallet because it can never be stolen.

2004,December: PayPal is founded
PayPal, or known as Confinity, is founded. At this point, Confinity's main objective is to enable money transfers solely on PDAs.

it's easy - all it takes is a few simple steps!

1.  Click 'Sign Up' when you go to paypal.com.sg, and choose your account type. There are three types of account - choose one that suits you best.

o        Premier: For individuals who sells and wants to get paid online
o        Business: For merchants who operate under a company/group name
  2 ·  Enter your account information securely and then either choose your payment method or link and confirm your credit card.
  • For Personal account, choose your payment method.
    Choose either bank top-up1 or credit card to use with your PayPal account. We recommend credit card as it automatically raises the preset limit for sending payments from your PayPal account.
·      For Premier/Business account, link and confirm your credit card.
We recommend that you add and confirm your credit card at sign-up - this gives additional security and increases the preset sending and withdrawal limits on your PayPal account.

3 ·  Confirm your email address to activate your account.

Setting Up Your PayPal Account and Profile

You start setting up your PayPal profile during the process of registering for a PayPal account. Open up your browser and type www.paypal.com into the Address Bar.
The PayPal home page has multiple links that let you sign up for your free account. You can find one Sign Up link in the upper-right corner of the screen, and the other can be found in the middle of the screen.
Account Types and Features
Signing up and sending payments with PayPal is free1. You only pay low fees when you receive payments with PayPal.
There are three account types you can choose from:
  • Personal: Recommended for individuals who shop online. Financial information are never shared with the merchants, and there's no need to retype your card details for each payment.
    Note: You can also use a Personal account to sell and get paid online. However, we recommend that you sign up for a Premier or Business account as fees for receiving payments are lower.
  • Premier: Recommended for casual sellers who want to get paid online, and make payments for their online purchases - whether on eBay or on websites. Fees for receiving payments are lower with a Premier account than with a Personal account.
  • Business: Recommended for sellers who want to operate under a business name. Business account holders can also assign up to 200 staff different access levels to the account without granting them rights to sensitive information and features.

Opening a Personal account

You can open a Personal account in just a few steps; the entire process doesn't usually take more than five minutes. Here's how:
1. At the PayPal Account Sign Up page, make sure the Personal Account option is selected.
If you're wondering what happened to the Premier account, just hang on.
You have the option of upgrading a Personal account to a Premier account later on.

2. Select your country from the list and click the Continue button.
3. Start building a PayPal profile by filling in the fields shown on the Account Sign Up page.
The information you need to give PayPal includes
• Your first name, last name, and full address, including city, state, zip code, and country. PayPal requires a zip code for U.S. accounts, but may not require one if you create an International PayPal account.
• Your home telephone number for verification purposes; you have the option of entering a work number.
• Your e-mail address. You need to enter this twice so PayPal can ensure you didn't mistype it the first time.
• A password to use with your PayPal account.
• This password must be at least eight characters long and is case-sensitive. (This means you need to pay attention to whether you use uppercase and/or lowercase characters when you create your password. PayPal won't accept PASSWORD123 as a valid password if you typed password123 as your password when you created your account.) Just as you did when you entered your e-mail address, you need to type your password a second time. Picking a password that you don't use with other accounts you may have is also important. If you pick your e-mail password to use as your PayPal password and your e-mail password is compromised, you may find someone making unauthorized use of your funds! It's better to be safe and think up a unique password.
• You are asked to pick two questions from a list of four security questions. The answers you give to these questions are used to verify your identity if you lose or forget your password.
• Deciding whether you want to open a Personal or Premier account. The big advantage of having a Premier account is that you can accept credit card payments from people who don't have or use a PayPal account.
• You need to read and accept the PayPal User Agreement and Privacy Policy, or you won't be able to open your account. It's vital that you read both documents before checking the Yes option, indicating that you agree to the terms. Knowing what can or may happen to your account is important before transferring your money into the account.
• PayPal also asks you to indicate that you understand your rights with regard to the arbitration of claims as outlined in the Legal Disputes section of the User Agreement. A link is provided to the document, which describes how legal disputes should be handled in the event that there are problems between you and PayPal. As with any legal document, you should read the whole thing before signing and contact a lawyer if you're unsure as to what the document means.
• You have one final security step to go through before the account opens. PayPal displays a sequence of characters in a box with a boxed background. You must type in the characters, exactly as shown, in a text box to the right of the sequence. This step is to prevent automated programs from trying to sign up for PayPal accounts. Although a program can fill out the fields on the Account Sign Up page, it can't read the sequence and type it into the box.
• If you are visually impaired, you can still type the correct character sequence into the box, even if you can't read the characters as shown against the background. Click the Help link displayed at the end of the "Security Measure" paragraph to open the PayPal Registration Security Help page. At the end of the page is a listen to the security characters link. Click the link to hear an audio clip that says the characters aloud. You can then type the characters into the box correctly to finish the registration process. In the case of these security characters, it doesn't matter whether you type in the letters as uppercase or lowercase, as long as you get the letters and numbers in the correct sequence.
4. Click the Sign Up link at the bottom of the page to submit your registration information.
After filling out the registration form, you're taken to a page that tells you the process is almost complete except for the confirmation of your e-mail address. After you click the Sign Up link from the previous screen, PayPal sends you an e-mail.
5. Open your e-mail program and look for an e-mail from PayPal.
If your e-mail inbox is anything like mine, you have to search hard to find the PayPal e-mail amidst all the spam. Look for an e-mail from service@paypal.com with a subject heading of "Activate Your PayPal Account!"
6. Click the Click here to activate your account link, which can be found in the body of the e-mail. (Alternatively, you can copy the link and paste it into the address bar of your browser.)
Clicking the link takes you to a page where you are prompted to enter the password you designated when you registered for the account.
7. Type your password and click the Confirm button.
Congratulations! You just opened your PayPal account.

Updating your profile

After you open a PayPal account, keeping your user profile up-to-date is very important. To update your profile, log on to your account and click the Profile link under the My Account tab. You have the option of updating any of the following:
  • Account Information: You can update your basic contact information (e-mail, address, password, time zone, and so on).
  • Financial Information: You can change the credit cards or bank accounts associated with your PayPal account, set up online bill paying, see your account balances, redeem gift certificates, and more. The options that are available are dependent upon the type of account that you have.
  • Selling Preferences: Here you can set up preferences for setting up auctions, registering your Web site as a PayPal shop, setting shipping preferences, setting up invoice templates, and so on. The options available depend upon the type of PayPal account you have.
