How do I accept a PayPal payment in my PayPal account?

In some cases PayPal may require you to accept payments when a donor chooses the option to pay via PayPal instead of via credit card. 

Here's how to accept a payment in your PayPal account:

  1. Go to and log in to your PayPal account.
  2. Click History.
  3. Select Accept under Order status/Actions.
  4. Select Accept this payment and click Submit.
