PayPal operates as an online payment platform between buyers and sellers of goods and services. Traditionally, a seller can collect payment from a buyer by sending an invoice through PayPal to the buyer via email. The buyer then enters bank or credit card information into the PayPal payment platform to deposit a payment into the seller's PayPal account. This method can also be used to deposit additional funds into your PayPal account using your own credit card.
Things You'll Need
- PayPal account
- Email address
- Credit card
Log into your PayPal account. If you do not have an account, you will need to register at www.paypal.com. The registration process requires that you enter personal information such as your name, address, phone number and email address.
Select the "Request Money" option from the PayPal menu located near the top of your account page. This option will allow you to request funds from anyone with an email address, including yourself.
Type your email address in the "Recipient Email Address" box and type in the amount of funds that you wish to transfer in the box labeled "Amount." Click on the orange "Continue" button at the bottom of the form. This will send an email to your account with a link directing you to an invoice from which you can make a payment to your account.
Log into your email account and open the email that you sent to yourself from your PayPal account. Enter your name, billing address and credit card number. Click on the "Submit Payment" button at the bottom of the form. This action will transfer funds from your credit card to your PayPal account.
