(1) If you are a new BigCommerce Merchant using a trial PayPal account, you will need to select a qualifying BigCommerce Plan (Plus, Pro, or Enterprise). Go into your BigCommerce account Client Area and accept the terms of the selected BigCommerce plan and establish a billing agreement. You will then be charged the first month’s fee for your BigCommerce plan. If you are an existing BigCommerce Merchant already in a Plus, Pro, or Enterprise plan, you do not need to complete this step.
(2) From within the BigCommerce account Control Panel Payment Settings area, complete and submit the PayPal application to upgrade from a trial to full account.

Additional information may be requested from the PayPal team during the process of reviewing your application.

(3) 2 to 3 business days following your approval* for a PayPal, you will be emailed a Pricing Contract for you to digitally sign. We suggest adding echosign@echosign.com to your email whitelist to reduce the risk of it going to your spam folder. Follow the instructions in the email on how to sign and return the contract.

(4) Your account will then be updated to reflect the new rate, and you will receive a notification email with the updated rate. This can take up to 10 business days. Your new rate will only apply to transactions after the date on your notification email. Application for a PayPal account does not guarantee approval.

Merchants can get paid in more than 100 currencies, withdraw funds to their bank accounts in 57 currencies and hold balances in their PayPal accounts in 26 currencies.
