Setup PayPal on The iPhone 6
Grimm, Crystal, Eng
Welcome to VisiHow. Today we are going to discuss how to set up Paypal on your iPhone 6.
To start, press the power button on the right side of the phone
Swipe across the phone to go to the home screen
We are looking for the PayPal icon
The icon is a set of two "P"s, a dark blue "P" and a light blue "P" on a white background. We already made a tutorial on how to install PayPal on the iPhone 6, so if you need help installing PayPal, that's where you should go. Tap on the PayPal icon to open the application.
You can either Agree to PayPal's End User License Agreement, view it or close the application if you don't agree
If you agree, tap Agree.
Once you tap Agree, PayPal is going to ask if they can send you notifications
You will receive notifications including Alerts, Sounds and Icon badges. You can configure this in your Settings. For now, let's tap OK to allow it. You could tap Don't Allow, but you might not be notified when receiving a payment or on money being spent which could be important if someone else is using your PayPal.
PayPal lets you put your money where your pocket is
We can take PayPal with us everywhere we go. If you've never signed up for a PayPal account before you're going to tap on Sign Up.
PayPal will ask you for your Country, Email, and a Password
That's it. You will get an email confirmation and the account is created.
I already have a PayPal account so I'm going to Log In by using my Email Address and Password
We also have the option to show the password while you type. Once you've entered in your details tap on Log In.
PayPal will immediately open up and show you your recent activity
All of your financial transactions will be listed here. Mine are blocked because they are private. At the top, you will see your PayPal balance and then a series of transactions under it.
You can tap on Transfer on the bottom
PayPal will ask to access your contacts, you can allow it by tapping OK or tap Don't Allow. I will allow.
Now you can simply enter the Email/Phone Number, Amount, a Message and select if it is for Friends or Family, or Goods or Services
You can also request money the exact same way
You can tap on the Wallet icon beside Transfer, here you can add your cards
To add, just tap on the plus button in the top right corner
Here you can choose between Debit Card, Credit Card, Loyalty Card and Gift Card. You can also cancel. I'm going to tap on Loyalty Card for an example.
You can type in the store name to find the card
Any of these cards that you used can be used in conjunction with PayPal, which is nice. Tap back when you are done.
Here in my wallet I have a number of things
I have bank accounts and credit cards. Obviously I have blocked out all of this information.
You can tap on Settings in the bottom right corner
This will let you change your Mobile Numbers, Personal Details, Photos, In-Store Payments, Payments, and Transfers, etc.
If you want to shop, you can tap the shop button in the top left corner
This diagram shows you how to shop
PayPal will ask if they can access Location Services to get a list of nearby stores, restaurants and more that accept PayPal
You can turn it on or choose Not Now. I will turn it on.
The phone will ask again if you would like PayPal to access your location
I will Allow.
It looks like 4GTECH CANADA TELECOM has a local place here so I can tap on that
If I want to, I can get closer and Pay
When I'm done I can go back.
When you're finished, press on the home button to go back to your home screen
Now you can do whatever you would like to do with your phone.
