How do I withdraw funds from PayPal?

After you set up PayPal in your store, you can accept PayPal payments and credit or debit cards from your customers. In this case, the money for orders goes to your PayPal account. From there you can withdraw the money to your bank account, Visa and MasterCard Debit & Prepaid Cards, PayPal Debit MasterCard, or request a check. In this article, we describe how to use each of these options.

If you use other online payment gateways in your store (like Stripe, Square, Payeezy, etc.), find instructions on how to withdraw the money on their websites or contact their support team.

Forwarding funds directly to your bank account is the most popular way to withdraw money from PayPal. You need to have a confirmed bank account to withdraw money. Read how to confirm your bank account with PayPal. Here are the steps to get the money to your bank account:
