Should I use paypal?
« on: May 31, 2017, 04:07:06 pm »
First of all, hi! I'm 14 years old and I want to sell adopts and a ych I made should I stick to DA points or use Paypal also?

Sadly my parents don't have an account and I doubt they actually know what paypal is.

Thanks for any help :-)

Good day. If you'd like to spend money and have an account to link to PayPal, it is a very safe service. Occasionally it is hacked, but it's better than paying directly with an account.

PS I'm 14 too, and it's nice to meet you.

Lately PayPal has been iffy about giving accounts to people under 18, so if you don't mind using a parent's, then that's a good option.

I think you have to have a credit card/bank account to link to paypal so you might have to talk to your parents, but it's probably the safest, easiest way to pay online.  It's also used just about everywhere so I don't see why not!

I used to have a PayPal, but then it required ID and mine got suspended until I can prove I'm 18, which I can't til I actually turn 18 next month, lol. They may have changed the rules sense then though

You legally need to be 18 to open a PayPal account. If your parents don't have one you could always ask them and help them open it up. You do not need a bank card or credit card linked to it to use it though, at least not if you intend to reuse the funds online. What I mean by this is when people pay you it does into your "PayPal balance" (which is real money btw) and you can send that to other people to pay for commissions etc (this is what I do), however if you want to take that money out to spend irl at places that don't take PayPal you need to put it in a bank account. Hope that makes sense :fox-:P:

As I said though you can't open your own account until your 18. Deviantart is a great alternative though if you can't get a PayPal as you can at least earn some for, of currency for your goods ^^
