Take out from a PayPal account

You will receive all payments by PayPal on your PayPal account. You can transfer an amount to your own banking account by the option 'drawing' and 'transferring money to your banking account'

! When using PayPal the customer can choose between payment by credit card or payment via a PayPal account. In the latter case the customer has opened a PayPal account and he/she logs in to PayPal with his/her email address and password. Should the customer prefer to pay by credit card, PayPal will need a number of personal data. If the customer has used the PayPal account even once, from then on the standard option will be payment via the PayPal account .This can be bypassed by clicking on 'I do not have a PayPal account'; the next PayPal screen will then show the credit card option.

It is sensible to verify your PayPal account to use your PayPal account optimal. You can remove all safety limits with the status of controlled PayPal account which exists for all accounts (750 EUR in total of payments; 750 EUR of transfers a month and 2250 EUR of transfers in total).
