* The first thing you should do is sign up an account with Paypal.com. Once your account is set up, follow Paypal’s instructions to verify your address and account. This will help build buyers’ trust in you as a seller. Paypal will help you easily accept payment from buyers as well as pay wholesale suppliers securely.
* NEVER respond to an e-mail from Paypal that asks you for your login information, or asks you to follow a link to a login page. This is a scam known as “phishing.” A typical message might include scare tactics such as “We have noted an illegal login attempt to your account” or “You have added a new e-mail address to your account.” If you follow the link, you will be directed to what LOOKS like a Paypal login page, but your login information will actually be sent to crooks, who will promptly use your info to clear out your account. Paypal will NEVER send you an e-mail asking for your login info. If you receive a suspicious e-mail, you should forward it to: email@example.com and they will reply to let you know if it is authentic or not.
* Never respond to an e-mail from eBay that asks for your login information. Some bogus messages appear to be from interested buyers.
