Artist of the Moment

Hi, I'm Kori. I joined GASR in 2014 and have grown to love the community and people here. I'm a self taught hobby artist but I've liked to draw and paint ever since I can remember. I didn't get into using a tablet till a few years ago- and I love it. My family has always been a really big supporter in whatever I do, so I hope to continue and make it a more serious thing. I believe there's always room for me to improve so that's what I plan to do.

Hi, I'm sorry if this topic is such a boob or something but I really need help with setting up a paypal account. I have a few questions that I can't find an answer too. I tried reading everything there is to know with Paypal, but I'm still kind of confused.

  1. I'm from the Philippines, is it okay if I make a paypal account on rather than making one on For some reason the sign up page is different for both.
  2. If I do make a ph account, it is still possible for other people to send me $$, right? Will that change to my currency depending on my bank?

Sorry for the noobness, I have more questions... I just don't know how to ask them. (haha, that was dumb but okay)

Hello, @Marielle

I'm pretty sure you can create a paypal account using a ph paypal.

Here is a source
Quote :
That’s right. PayPal’s official website now shows the Philippines as a Send-Receive-Withdraw country, meaning PayPal Philippines account holders can send AND receive payments, AND also withdraw funds to a bank account in the US or to a credit, debit or prepaid card.

Site: Source

Also on the actual Paypal site; when you click to currency tab; it does show PHP. Paypal converts from whichever country currency to whatever currency the sender is sending to.

>.<..Hope that helps.

Edit: I see your examples, but I'm pretty sure all Paypal sign-ups are the same with basic information. No matter if the site layout looks different.

You can sign up using the PH one, and yes, people can still send you money if PayPal has you greenlit, which reading that snippet states that you can. Just set your account to receive money. (Since I see that's one of your options.)

If people send you money, regardless of the type of currency, PayPal will automatically convert it for you, if that's what you're worried about.  And if you send money to someone else, they'll convert it to whatever currency they prefer before you send it as well.

PayPal is pretty OP.

Thank you so much guys! Okay, more confident in setting up a paypal account. :)

Okay, so I'm trying to sign up right now, what should I place here? It's mandatory, apparently.

i feel so dumb, i'm sorry guys

I would assume it means you type in the same name you have your bank account registered/opened to.

PM for Moosey Assistance.

@Moose; I'll try that, thank you! I think that's what you really put. Ahah

@Mattie it just gives me these two options click

Your link isn't working above.  ^

Also, the business name is for your business, not your bank.  It looks like you're singing up for
a business account, not a personal account.

Okay I had to put it in image tags to see it better.

Go back and sign up using the "Buy with PayPal" option.  That must be the personal account.

@Queen will I be able to receive payments if I do choose that?
Wed Aug 12, 2015 2:40 pm

I use a personal PayPal myself and I've been receiving payments since 2011.
