How to use PayPal with Pozible

24th May 2012 13:23pm
We are excited to bring you a new easy-to-use method of payment for supporting our fantastic projects through PayPal.

If you don’t have a PayPal account...

Step 1. Sign up with PayPal

Visit PayPal to create a PayPal account.

Step 2. If you are a project creator, select Premier. If you are a project supporter, select personal. Both options are free.

Step 3. Register your personal details

Step 4. Choose your payment method

If you choose to pay using your credit card, you can start using your account immediately so we recommend you register a credit card.

Don’t worry you can always add a bank account later.

Step 5. Enter your credit card details.

It’s as simple as that! You are now ready to use PayPal.

Verifying your account

While it is not necessary to verify your Paypal account before you start your Pozible campaign, we strongly recommend you do so.

Unverified Paypal accounts have limits imposed on them. They will not be able to receive or make pledges that are over US$2,000.

For more information on how to verify your account, please visit Paypal.

If you already have a PayPal account and want to launch a project on Pozible...

Upgrade your Personal account to a Premier account.

Due to our crowdfunding system, PayPal requires users to have a Premier account to launch Pozible projects, instead of their existing Personal Account.

If you already have a PayPal account you use for online shopping, you will need to upgrade your account.

Don’t worry, it’s easy and free.

Step 1. Log in to Paypal

Log in to your existing PayPal account.

Step 2. Check if you have a Personal account

Just below your name you can check your Account Type. If it says Personal, click on Upgrade.

Step 3. Follow the prompts to Upgrade your account to Premier.

Step 4. If you already have a Premier account, PayPal will tell you.

Once you’ve got your Premier PayPal account ready to roll, log in to Pozible and register your PayPal account with us.

And then you’re done!
