Upgrading your PayPal account to a Premier or Business account

PayPal offers 3 kinds of accounts: Personal, Premier, and Business.

Find out more about the differences between Personal, Premier, and Business accounts.

To upgrade your PayPal account:
  1. Go to PayPal.

  2. Log in to your account at the top of the PayPal home page.

  3. On your Account overview page, click the Upgrade link next to Account Type.

  4. On the next page, click Upgrade now.

Important: If you offer PayPal as a payment option on eBay (either using logos or text in the item description) you must accept all forms of PayPal payment including payments from an existing PayPal account balance, bank account transfers, and credit card payments. You can't tell eBay buyers that you will only accept specific forms of PayPal payment. See the PayPal payments policy for more information.

If you need more information, please contact PayPal.
