What online payment method are you using on websites like StockX? Though nowadays, it is not a big deal to use your credit or debit card directly for online purchases on secured sites (just like StockX), many people still prefer to hide their account details by using payment platforms like PayPal. In this post, I will be showing you how to add PayPal to StockX, either you are a buyer or a seller on the website.
The reason I am writing this article is that many people are asking if they can actually use PayPal to buy or sell items on StockX. The answer is yes. Read on and you will see the steps that will guide you through on how to add PayPal to StockX if you are buying from the site, or wanted to receive payment through it as a seller.
How to Add PayPal to StockX Buyer Profile
Creating a buyer account on StockX is very easy because you have less information to fill. You can easily create a StockX account using your Twitter or Facebook account in just some minutes. But after that, you still need to set up your profile. You can access both your buyer and seller profile by following this part on the StockX page, “My Account > Settings”.
Once you arrive at the page, you will be able to see all the changes you can make. After you might have added your name, email, shoe size, and preferred currency, you will be taken to the buying info section. To add PayPal to your StockX buyer info, just follow the steps outlined below:
- Next to the “Buying Info,” click on the green “Edit” button.
- A new window will pop up. You will be prompted to choose to add PayPal or add a credit card.
- After you select “PayPal,” a new window will open. You will be asked to enter an email connected to your PayPal account.
- You have to accept “Agree & Continue”.
- And then proceed to enter your full name and shipping information.
- Then click on “Continue with PayPal”.
That is all you need to do in order to add PayPal to your StockX buyer profile. Now, your StockX account has PayPal as the desired form of payment whenever you are buying sneakers or streetwear. Anytime you feel like making a change in your mode of payment, you can always go back and edit shopping info specifically or connect a credit card. This might be in a situation where you have low funds on your PayPal account.
How to Add PayPal to StockX Seller Profile
If you are planning to use StockX primarily as a market place where you will sell items, then adding PayPal to your account is the best decision. As a seller, you have two options to receive payment. You can use an electronic ACH money transfer to your bank, which can take up to five business days. But if you want a faster process, then PayPal is the best among the two.
However, before you can add PayPal as a payout method, you have to provide your information that includes a valid credit card and a billing address. To add PayPal to your StockX seller profile just click the “Edit” button next to “Seller Info” under Settings and confirm. After that, you can scroll down and follow these steps:
- Select the green “Edit” button next to “Payout Info”.
- Select the “Use PayPal for payout” option.
- Enter your PayPal info. Write in your email address twice.
- Select “Submit”.
Once you are done, PayPal will then automatically connect your account to StockX. This will then be your official payout system. However, sometimes a transaction with PayPal might fail.
This could happen due to a frozen account or any number of reasons. It is probably best to contact PayPal directly and check what caused the problem. That said, this does not happen very often.
If you are used to PayPal in making online purchases, you will be glad that you can also use it on StockX too. As a buyer, you do not have to expose your credit card information; all that is important is your shipping info and email.
As a seller, you will need to connect your credit card for verification, but your payout method can still be PayPal, exclusively. There are many benefits of using PayPal, but online safety is the best of them al.
