    I must be the only one on the board that does not have a paypal account - we do have a checking account- I do not use credit cards -

    so was just wondering how I get a paypal started

    also do I need a paypal account to order eggs from BYC members?

    Easy. I will tell you step by step.

    go to paypal.com and click register. Fill out your email and name and address.

    when you are adding a checking account paypal will add to deposits which takes 3-4 business days. After that give the bank a call and get a statement. Put the deposit amount into the paypal area that will show $0.00 and put in the 2 deposits and your set [​IMG]

    I can help much better by doing this over the phone though [​IMG]

    Hi, its really easy.all you need is a checking account.......go to
    https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_registration-run
    and follow step by step instructions. Once you put in your bank account info.they will make 3 small deposits , like .15 .25.....or so and when they show up in your account...........you log into paypal and enter those amounts and you are then verified..........cost you nothing to sign up....they take the fees out of the amount you send or receive...... good luck....it is nice and easy way to pay for things....

    just go to www.paypal.com and click the link to set up a new account.

    It's easy and fast. The site will walk you through it.

    Most people don't require that you have paypal, but it does make things a lot faster than sending a check or money order.
