PayPal is an excellent tool to use when setting up an online fundraiser on YouCaring. Knowing how to verify your PayPal account is vital part of setting up your online fundraising account. Providing donors with a low-cost, secure system to fund your cause is critical to your success. Setting up a PayPal account is straightforward. PayPal will ask you to verify your PayPal account which is easy to do.
How to Verify Your PayPal Account
Log in to your PayPal account, or if you don’t have an account create one.
Enter your bank account information on PayPal’s secure platform.
Follow the steps to confirm your bank account.
Once you’ve verified your PayPal account, you can raise your spending and withdrawal limits and enjoy increased credibility online.

YouCaring is a free online fundraising site designed for simplicity. We want you to understand how fundraising works so can create a campaign that motivates people to donate to your cause.
People can read your story, see your pictures and video, and read what others have said. Clicking the “donate now” button takes the donor to a page where they enter the amount they wish to give and then takes them to the secure checkout page. The donor may choose to contribute with a credit card, debit card, or PayPal account.
However, PayPal tracks guest purchases on all websites, not just through YouCaring, and declines payments once their limit is reached. If a donor is being declined for this reason, their only option will be to either create a PayPal account or login with an existing account. In the same way, users who have added a credit card to an existing PayPal account as a payment method will be required to sign into their PayPal account when using the credit card to donate.
We’ve worked hard to create a system that is friendly, secure and easy to use. We want people to be able to focus on giving to your crowdfunding campaign without needing to go through a long and complicated process. It’s free to set up a fundraiser or to withdraw your donations.
We believe it shouldn’t cost a penny for people in need to ask for help for a good cause. The only costs are the third party credit card processing fees (2.9% plus $0.30 per transaction) of which YouCaring receives nothing. Our operational expenses are paid by the kind donations of those who believe in what we do, which is to build a bridge between those who are in need and those who want to help.
