After so many promises, finally, here’s the post you guys have been asking for. Today, let’s see how us teenagers can utilize PayPal to earn our hard-earned money online. I know you guys have been waiting this for such a long time. So do I. :mrgreen:

Let’s get started !

1. About PayPal

First of all, here’s what PayPal introduce themselves:

PayPal is the safer, easier way to pay and get paid online. The service allows anyone to pay in any way they prefer, including through credit cards, bank accounts, PayPal Smart Connect or account balances, without sharing financial information.

They also back up :

PayPal has quickly become a global leader in online payment solutions with more than 169 million accounts worldwide. Available in 190 markets and 24 currencies around the world, PayPal enables global e-commerce by making payments possible across different locations, currencies, and languages.


PayPal has received more than 20 awards for excellence from the internet industry and the business community – most recently the 2006 Webby Award for Best Financial Services Site and the 2006 Webby People’s Voice Award for Best Financial Services Site.

As you can see, PayPal’s got quite a reputation. So most websites with online transactions usually have PayPal as a way to withdraw or purchase.

Some actually offer PayPal as the only transaction option so if you really want to make money online, you’ve got to have a PayPal account.

To be honest, it’s been more than a year since I created my own account. You know, the site has changed quite a lot, for the better that is.

Registration seems to be more straightforward. The site design is more professional and modern. Also, features as well as the whole payment system have been modified. But well, most things stayed the same and still do its job well.

The real question is: Why should us teenagers use PayPal ?

2. PayPal and Make Money Online for Teens

A very crucial part of making money online is to actually receiving your hard-earned income. The main ways to do this are:

  • Checks.
  • Bank account.
  • Credit cards.
  • PayPal.

You see, the first 2 require you to have either a bank account or a credit card, probably not easily for teenagers to get, mostly impossible unless you borrow from your parents.

The third one require the risk of losing your money due to delivery reasons. Though rarely, we still don’t want to take risks.

Let’s see what the final option –  PayPal – offer.

First is accessibility. You yourself can make a PayPal account. No need to worry about any borrowing here.

Second is ease of use, which we have:

  • Fast delivery time: Everything works online so you’ll get pretty much instant access to your money.
  • Risk free: No delivery errors.
  • Easy transaction: Well, you just need an email. Then they should send you the money easily.
  • Flexible buying: The money is sent to your PayPal account online. Therefore, you can jump right into buying things online. And no need to deposit your money online again after receiving it.

After all, we’ve seen the convenience of PayPal. Let’s see how you can make one yourself.

3. How teens can Create a PayPal account

First go to PayPal:

Then click on Sign Up for Free:

Teen Register for PayPal

Enter basic information in the fields. Click Continue:

Enter some information.

Then you can either link a bank account or a credit card or skip it altogether.

If you don’t see any option to proceed, just close the tab. Open PayPal again. Then log in, you should see this:

PayPal Teens Info

Note that I have confirmed my email. How?

Go to your email. Click on the blue button.

Email Confirmation PayPal Teens


Confirm PayPal Email for Teens

Now you can start receiving money using your PayPal email. Yay yay !

Or if you want to, we can try to link your bank account and credit cards.

4. Link a Bank Account or Credit Card to your PayPal Account

Probably, you will have to ask for your parents information. Amazing if you have your own card. PayPal has already shown how to do this so I won’t give full details here.

5. Wrap up

Happily, now you don’t need to worry about receiving money from other sites or risk losing your hard-earned income. It’s the best to link a card or bank account since some sites will only pay you if your account is linked.

Try it. It works? Or really hard to use?
