Open an account with them just take 5 minutes, you just need to go to their website and follow their easy instructions. You have several option to accept payment by paypal.
The first one is that you tell the cuso to paypal website, then register. You give your email (the one that you use with paypal), and he send you a payment with your email only, you do not need to give your own bank account infos, or any private information. You give your email and you receive your payment.
The customer can pay by credit card or debit card.
Paypal allow you to copy and paste a code in the order webpage of your site; when you paste this code, a form will appear on your site, with a button, and your customer, when visiting your site just have to click on that button to pay you.
You have to do absolutely nothing, except receive a payment.
And a email will notify that you received a new payment( you will have the option of sending a refund ).
This is for the free payment gateway.
