Last updated on October 2, 2022 @ 4:09 am

If you’re selling products through your Shopify store, you can accept payments through PayPal. In order to do this, you need to verify your PayPal account with Shopify. Here’s how:

1. Log in to your Shopify admin panel and go to Settings > Payments. 2. Under Alternative payments, click Select additional payment method. 3.

Click PayPal. 4. Enter your PayPal email address and click Activate PayPal. 5. Shopify will now redirect you to PayPal to complete the verification process.

6. Log in to your PayPal account (if you’re not already logged in). 7. You’ll be asked to grant permissions to Shopify.

Click Agree and Continue. 8. That’s it! You’ve now verified your PayPal account with Shopify.

Note: If you have a Business or Premier PayPal account, you need to link it to a credit card in order to use it with Shopify.

PRO TIP: If you are using Shopify to sell products online, you may be asked to verify your PayPal account. This is a security measure to ensure that only authorized users are able to access your account.

If you are not the owner of the PayPal account, do not attempt to verify it. This could lead to your account being suspended or even canceled. Only the owner of the PayPal account should attempt to verify it.


To verify your PayPal account with Shopify, follow the steps above. Once you’ve completed the verification process, you’ll be able to accept payments through PayPal on your Shopify store.
