Have you been wondering how people make some cash online? Have you tried various methods that haven't quite worked for you? Are you giving up? Psst! I have a reason you shouldn't give up! There are articles in the Ebooks Apps and Self-Help Tips category lined up for you! This is the first lesson.

Okay! Enough talk. Now, before you get money, you must have a place to keep the money. Probably a wallet or bank account. Mmm! How do you get a wallet and a bank account online? Don't worry, somebody already thought about that and worked on it!

PayPal is your best friend here. It is the world's most famous virtual bank. And highly trusted by many online businesses. Follow the steps below to sign up for an account at PayPal.

How to Create a PayPal Account

1. Log on to PayPal and click sign up at the top-right corner.

Click in each of the boxes highlighted here and select or type in, respectively:
•the country in which you live
•your email address
•a password with which to protect your account
•a copy of the password that you just entered
When you're all set, click continue.

4. Provide your other personal information.
Next, you will have to fill in the personal details that PayPal will need to verifiably connect your account with your credit card, debit card, or bank.

Click in each of the boxes highlighted here and select or type in, respectively:
•your first name
•your middle name (optional)
•your last name
•your date of birth (numeric day/month/year format)
•your field of occupation
•your social insurance number (optional)
•your street address
•your unit address (optional)
•your area mailing code
•the city in which you live
•the state, province, or territory in
•which you live
•your phone number (click the menu beside it to select Mobile or Home number)
If you don't want extra emails from PayPal telling you about updates and promotions on PayPal's services, click the check box here to unmark it.
Once everything has been filled in correctly, click Agree and Create Account.

5. Add your credit card as a PayPal option. The next step is to link your credit card or debit card to your PayPal account. This allows you to shop in stores online and in the real world with PayPal, and have the purchase automatically charged to your credit card.

Click in each of the boxes highlighted here and type in:
•your credit card number
•your credit card's expiration date (numerical month/year [last two digits of year])
•your credit card's security code
PayPal will assume that the billing address for your credit card is the same as the personal one that you provided in the previous step. If it isn't, click Edit and provide the correct street address, unit address (optional), mailing code, city, and state/province/territory.
When you've filled in all of your information, click Link Card .
If you don't have a credit card, or don't want to add it as a payment option for PayPal, click I'd Rather Link My Bank Account First.

6. Add your bank account as a PayPal option.
Once you have linked your credit card to PayPal, you can also link your bank account(s) to your PayPal account, too. Or, if you don't want to link your bank account(s) to PayPal (at least not right now), click I'll Link My Bank Account Later (click the button that appears after this to confirm).

7.Verify your email address. There's one more thing that you need to do to complete the setup of your account, and that's verify your email address. You can't use your PayPal account without doing so! Go to your email client and log in. Find the email from PayPal Service titled "Welcome to PayPal" and click on it to open it. From there, just click the blue Yes, This is My Email Address button in the email.
