Instructions

  1. 1

    Go to Paypal.com and create an account. Select the country where you reside and your preferred language. PayPal is currently available in English, Spanish, French and Chinese. Choose the type of account you would like to create. Your options range from: a personal account, a premier account or a business account. A personal account is designed for those who shop online, while a premier account is used by those who buy and sell online. A business account may have multiple users and represents a company.

  2. 2

    Enter your personal information in each field, beginning with your e-mail and creating and verifying a password. If you already have a personal account, upgrade to a premier or business account.

    Log into your premier or business account. You will need to enter your e-mail and password. Select the "Shipping Calculations" tab on your profile home page.

  4. 4

    Select your service of shipping and handling. Choose either "domestic" or "international" before continuing. The default setting for domestic shipping is "Three day ground," but you can click on the "Shipping Method Name" for a drop-down with additional options. Make your selection, hit "next" and your changes will be calculated before checking out.

  5. 5

    If you are a seller, you may choose how to calculate your shipping and handling charges. Select fees to be charged by either order amount, weight or quantity. Manually enter the rates that you will be charging. Click the "next" button to save. Your shipping and handling charges will automatically be added on all future purchases.
