Having a paypal a/c will help you receive payments online.

PLEASE NOTE: Making payments with PayPal using a debit/credit card is not covered in this video.

If you earn money online from India, companies in other countries cannot directly send funds to your bank. So they use paypal to do this. When money reaches your paypal account first, then it will be credited to your bank.

Please be ready with the following two things before you start:
1. Your PAN card
2. a Bank account (which has the same name as PAN card)
